Field Study

Students can earn academic credits for field study under LIS 690 Library Internship Program, and LIS 696 Practicum in Librarianship. Students pursuing the school library media specialization are required to take LIS 696; those interested in careers in public or special libraries have the option of field placement under LIS 696 or an elective. Students interested in a career in college or university libraries are encouraged to take LIS 690. The program is dependent on the dedication and professional commitment of the many working librarians in the state and the University of Hawaii who provide the necessary supervision and guidance of students in their field placements.
