Library Seeks Interns to Help Copyright Process

Posted April 20, 2005 at 3:37pm

The Library of Congress will offer 10-week summer internships to college students, who will help locate and itemize uncataloged materials for the copyright registration process. The internship is an extension of the Library’s Junior Fellows Program.

Interns will earn a stipend of $300 per week, but as temporary employees they are not eligible for federal employee benefits and privileges.

Students who participate will learn various aspects of library work including preservation, reference, access standards, information management and the copyright system.

The Library’s U.S. Copyright Office has registered more than 30 million works of authorship in the past 135 years.

The internship begins June 6 and ends August 12. Applications for the internship are due Sunday.

Interested students must apply online at interns05@loc.gov. For more information, visit https://www.loc.gov/hr/employment/summerintern.

9/11 Memorial Grove to Be Dedicated Today

The Sept. 11 Memorial Grove in Ward 6, one of nine total that will be located throughout the District of Columbia, will be dedicated today at the historic Congressional Cemetery.

Father Daniel Coughlin, Chaplain of the House, will open the dedication service with the invocation at noon. The Navy Sea Chanters will perform musical selections beginning at 11:45 a.m., and the program will close with a moment of silence. Light refreshments will be served, and those in attendance are encouraged to walk the grounds after the dedication.

The grove at Congressional Cemetery is the first of eight smaller groves, one for each ward in the District, to be completed. A larger, central grove on Kingman Island in the Anacostia River will be the anchor of the memorial and is scheduled to be completed in 2006.

For more information, contact the cemetery at (202) 543-0539 or via e-mail at staff@congressionalcemetery.org.
