Work with Us
Volunteers have provided a primary means of support for the Smithsonian Institution since its establishment in 1846. Strong volunteer partnerships are essential for the Institution to successfully carry out its work. The Libraries have a variety of volunteer opportunities both in our branch libraries and "behind the scenes" in areas like cataloging, special digital projects, and book conservation.
