Moore Internship

About the Moore Internship

The Moore Internship provides law librarianship students with an opportunity to learn about the daily operations of an academic law library. The program is named in honor of Lucy Moore, who was appointed the first female instructor at the University of Texas School of Law in 1923, and was one of the school’s early law librarians.Lucy Moore

Students participating in the Moore Internship will meet with all of the Tarlton Law Library’s librarians to learn about their departments and job functions. Students will receive training and will work in many areas of the library, including circulation, serials management, and collection maintenance. 

The Moore Internship is open to University of Texas School of Information students who have already earned a law degree or who are enrolled in the JD/MSIS dual degree program. It is intended that students in the Internship will spend 10 hours per week at the library over the course of 10 weeks.

The Moore Internship is intended to be completed in the final semester of the master's degree program at the School of Information.
