Name, College, Year of Study, Email ID

A. Prerna Mahendra, NLU Delhi, 3rd year, mahendra,[email protected]

Name of Organisation, Location, Team Strength

Rajasthan HC library, Jodhpur, 5-6 people including librarian.

Application Process

I went to registrar of HC and he allowed me to visit library. I didn’t contact anyone before internship.

Duration of internship and timings

4 weeks, January 2013.

First impression, first day formalities, infrastructure

There was no supervisor to check whether we are using books or playing games on laptop. My first impression was good because I gave them some puzzles to solve and they were really impressed. Infrastructure is a kind of okeish as it is not NLU library. There were no formalities as such.

Main tasks

Main tasks are never given in a library internship. We all know that library internship are never a good option and it is waste of time.Though sometimes I was asked to help library people in search of books for judges.

Work environment and people

Work environment was really good. Many lawyers often visit the library and if you want internship under them then you can contact them there itself. They are really supportive. Work environment is peaceful and you can work on your projects too.

Best things

Best things were that you could attend any HC session in your first year which was really helpful for me because I learned some practical things there.

Bad things

Bad things are about supervision. There was no supervisor to tell us what should be done.

Stipend

No stipend

Biggest Lessons

I learned that you should never do a library internship.

Any Other Thing

I advise not to any library internship.

However If you want to do internship there hostels are available nearby and food quality is also good.
