2016 Ohioana Ruth Weimer Mount Internship
This internship was established by the Ohioana Library Association to honor the legacy of the service, commitment, and special contributions of Ruth Weimer Mount. It is open to full-time students of junior, senior, or graduate status majoring in fields related to the programs and services of Ohioana. These fields would include, but are not limited to: communications, education, English, history, journalism, library science, music, theater, arts, and not-for-profit administration.

The 2016 Mount Internship will be served between February 15 and June 1, 2016, with the specific schedule to be determined once an applicant is selected. The intern will be paid a stipend of $1,650 and should expect to work approximately 200 hours. At least 100 hours must be completed in the Ohioana Library. The internship is designed to introduce students to the general programs of Ohioana, as well as to the role and involvement of volunteers in not-for-profit organizations.

The specific responsibilities of the intern will be determined within the mission and programs of the Ohioana Library Association and the interests and expertise of the student. Students interested in being considered for the Ohioana Ruth Weimer Mount Internship should complete the application form and return it with a résumé by January 15, 2016 to the address identified on the application.
