The Galileo Knowledge Repository (GKR) internship is designed to provide service to GKR sites needing assistance and to give students hands-on experience using a modified version of Dublin Core in a digital repository environment. The student interns work virtually from any remote location that has internet access. Selected student interns are assigned to the GKR partner institutes and work as content submitters. Interns are required to complete a minimum of 120 hours of work during the summer semester to earn three credit hours (MLIS 7960 Supervised Fieldwork) in the Master of Library and Information Science Program at Valdosta State University. In this report, intern selection criteria, the training process, content submission, and the challenges/lessons learned from the GKR internship are discussed.
