Seiler Library Internship, Summer 2023
The American Antiquarian Society, a national special collections library founded in 1812 and located in Worcester, Massachusetts, is pleased to announce our paid Seiler Internship for Summer 2023.
This internship is an opportunity to explore librarianship by working at a national research library, participating in its daily activities, completing library-based projects, and beginning to develop a network of contacts in the field. This internship is generously sponsored by the Nadia Sophie Seiler Fund.

This internship will provide an overview of possible careers in the library field. While the candidate's interests will help shape the internship, we anticipate the intern will job shadow or work on projects in our manuscripts and graphic arts collections, reader services, and public programs. The intern will also get to interview other staff and shadow other departments, depending on areas of interest. We also are planning for 4-6 field trips to other special collections libraries in the region. The intern will be asked to maintain a journal detailing their experiences.

The Seiler Internship is a residential internship, and the Seiler Intern will live in AAS Scholars’ Housing. This will allow them to participate in Society events and to build relationships with other members of the Society’s community, including researchers and other interns in various departments at the Society. Candidates must be 21 by the time the internship starts and cannot hold an MLIS degree, or be enrolled in, or accepted to, an MLIS program.

Internship Compensation:
  • Stipend of $7000 for 10 weeks
  • Relocation allowance, to and from Worcester: a maximum of $1,250.
  • Any costs associated with trainings and site visits
  • Free housing on-site at AAS
