Library seeking applicants for RA

The Law Library is seeking applicants for the Faculty Research Assistants Program. The program provides participating students with opportunities to work on short-term research projects assigned by various members of the faculty, with supervision and training by the reference librarians. The program will give students the chance to work closely and build relationships with a variety of faculty members and polish their legal research skills, while providing valuable research assistance to the faculty.

Applicants must have successfully completed LARW and have good interpersonal and communication skills. Prior research experience is a plus. Some faculty projects require particular substantive or language skills, so please identify in your cover letter any such skills not readily identifiable from your resume.

Applicants must be willing to commit 8-10 hours per week for the fall semester, August 27 through December 4. Starting Faculty RAs are paid $ 10.50/hour.

To apply, forward a resume and a cover letter expressing your interest and outlining any special skills to Lauren Collins, Reference Librarian, at or 613-7120.
