About Franklin D. Roosevelt Library

The Franklin D. Roosevelt Library was the first presidential library in the United States. Built under the guidance of Roosevelt himself, the library opened in 1941 and is operated by the National Archives. The library complex consists of a museum and an archive of the former president's personal papers and historical documents.

Interns with an interest in the history of the New Deal era have the unique opportunity to work with primary source materials from the Roosevelt presidency. They work alongside library staff, helping to catalogue museum and archival materials, create databases and scan documents and photographs for digital retrieval.


Open to college freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors, recent college graduates and grad students.
