Industry placements

UNSW Library values the role of undertaking professional placements in education and endeavours to provide a practical, constructive program for students that benefits all parties.

Placements will involve meetings and activities with UNSW Library managers to learn about library functions and processes. Students will spend time in one or more units across the Library throughout their placement period.

How to apply

Positions are available for students enrolled in an ALIA accredited library and information science qualification who are required to undertake work placements. Preference will be given to students interested in working in a tertiary academic environment.

There will be a limited number of positions available per year (timing of placements may be negotiable). Students interested in undertaking an industry placement at UNSW Library will be required to complete an application form.

The next intake for 2022 will be between October and December with submissions due 21 August 2022. You will be notified of the outcome early September 2022.
