Employers of MLIS graduates strongly prefer job candidates that have worked in libraries and done internships. Many libraries, archives, and museums in Oklahoma have expressed interest in hosting OU MLIS students for internships.
Summer is a great time for students to do internships, and it's not too late! If you are interested in pursuing an internship this summer, and have already completed 18 hours towards your MLIS, please contact Dr. Buffy Smith-Edwards or Dr. Susan Burke to talk about possible placements (or contact the SLIS office).
BAIS students also do internships as a required part of their degree. If you are a BAIS student who is ready to sign up for your internship, please contact the SLIS office for help finding a great placement!
