Volunteer Programs

Include opportunities to work in department Collections, on Outreach Programs, and for researchers. Collection and researcher programs usually require a commitment of 2 or 3 hours a week for at least one term. These take place during normal business hours. Outreach programs are more variable depending on the specific program and can include only a few days commitment but may be outside normal business hours.
