Paid and Non-Paid Internships

Guidelines for Internships in Media Services

Media and Reserve Services

Herman B Wells Library


The IUB Bloomington Libraries Media Services Department is dedicated to support the teaching, learning, and cultural needs of Indiana University-Bloomington faculty, instructors, students, staff, and the Bloomington community by a) maintaining a high-quality collection of non-print media, b) providing prompt access to reliable information resources, and c) providing excellent user service and support.


The IU Bloomington Libraries Media & Reserve Services is looking for students interested in areas such as film studies, media collection development, media literacy, and library science. We require a commitment of 5-10 hours per week, per semester, which will result in enhanced existing customer and access services vis-à-vis collection assessment and evaluation, customer analysis and survey, and/or creative assigned and individual projects.


All assigned projects should match the student’s intellectual and professional interests as well as the needs of Media & Reserve Services. All projects must be approved by the Head of M&RS and the Media Services Coordinator. Projects will be defined in writing before the internship begins. All assigned projects must be completed by the end of the academic semester.


Media & Reserve Services offers two opportunities to gain valuable experience within a media academic environment. These include both paid and unpaid internships. The internship rate is $7.40 per hour. Click here for more information:
