Work Placements

La Trobe University Library offers ten-day work placements throughout the year. We recognise and understand the importance of work placements and the benefits they provide to students, host institutions, and the library sector.

We provide a limited number of work placement opportunities for those enrolled in tertiary education who require a student placement as part of the course completion.

Applications are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

How to apply

Placements for students enrolled in ALIA-recognised library and information management courses are coordinated by our Library Community Programs and Engagement team, liaising with student placement coordinators at universities.

Please contact the Library detailing the following:

  • why you are interested in a placement at La Trobe University Library and the areas of library operations you hope to learn more about
  • preferred month of placement
  • any specific requirements from your education institution, including any requirements for specific projects as part of your placement
  • your Working with Children Check card number
  • a brief resumé
