Using case studies from two academic libraries (Gettysburg College and Lycoming College), this presentation demonstrated how libraries can strengthen the profession by nurturing undergraduates to explore librarianship as a career. The presentation provided a snapshot of how libraries may mentor students, either informally or through a formal internship program, including how to supervise interns and fund, market, and structure the internship.
