While many part time positions in libraries enhance students’ educational and professional development, often they do not provide structured learning about libraries beyond the role. To enhance student learning, the Faculty of Information has partnered with University of Toronto Libraries (UTL) to oversee TALint: the Toronto Academic Libraries Internship.
“UTL and the TALint program will provide interns the opportunity to not only enhance the quality of their learning, but also strengthen the profession by creating future leaders who will meet the complexities inherent in the libraries, archives, and records management fields,” says Professor Wendy Duff.
TALint students work in a variety of UTL departments, such as the University Archives, Media Commons, Engineering Library, Outreach and Student Engagement, OISE, and more. Students are paid to work for 15 hours per week and can hold the position for up to 24 months.
- Applicants to TALint must be incoming full-time MI students starting in September following the application period.
- Minimum A- grade average in the undergraduate program of study (overall GPA or final year GPA; this is 5 FCE senior level courses)
- Must have submitted all supporting documents via the Online Graduate Admissions Application by January 31.
- TALint postings occur in February of each year.
- All eligible candidates will be notified by email in February.
