Requirements for participation are: (1) enrollment in a Library & Information Science graduate program (or related program), (2) membership in NJLA, (3) no previous NJLA committee appointments. 

Interns are also required to attend three (3) virtual meetings with their Intern cohort throughout the year beginning with the Internship Orientation on Friday, November 13, 2020.
