Internships

2020-2021 Internships

The UOC Library has opened six calls for applications for non-curricular internships.

No coffee or photocopies! You will be able to train in a real work environment to support specialist personnel.

What we offer

  • You’ll learn alongside a team of professionals. Get to know us!
     

  • You’ll have a flexible timetable so you can combine the internship with your studies.
     

  • You’ll get to know a Library born in the digital era that mentors students, researchers and teaching staff in their work.
     

  • No fetching coffee or making photocopies! On this internship, we want you to say what you think and play an active role.

Data analysis and management

We need this evidence to be able to take decisions. This is an opportunity to gain experience in one of the most innovative areas of the job market with an extremely high demand for qualified professionals.

Responsibilities:

  • Data analysis and presentation. You’ll get to know and work on the Library's indicator map and familiarize yourself with the different data sources and systems of use. You’ll also analyse the possibility of designing an infrastructure to store a heterogeneous set of data.

     
  • Data display. To aid analysis of the information, you’ll take part in producing reports with Data Studio or Power BI.

Research assessment

As an intern, you will help to promote the research being conducted at the UOC specializing in the areas of e-learning and the information and knowledge society, as well as e-health

Responsibilities:
 

  • Provide support compiling bibliometric indicators. You will learn about the main national and international bibliometric indices used to evaluate scientific production, which are needed by researchers when submitting applications for funding or to participate in research.
     
  • Social media monitoring for research projects. You will learn about the latest trends in relation to altmetrics (alternative metrics), which are indicators that help to analyse the influence or attention generated by scientific articles on social media – for example a tweet, a Facebook post or a blog entry – and complement traditional impact indicators such as the impact factor or number of citations.

Learning resource selection

The home of the learning resources kitchen.

Responsibilities:

  • Selection and dissemination of content. Our faculty reference librarians provide support to the teaching staff and help them choose the best learning resources for UOC courses. These professionals know which sources to go to and how to find the necessary information at any given time. In this internship you will help the subject librarians choose the best information sources to meet the needs of each case.
     

  • Production of learning resources. When a teacher asks for new material at our University, a multidisciplinary team helps the teacher choose the format best matched to the course (a video, a website, a novelette, etc). From that point onwards, the gearwheels start turning: the project is planned and monitored. In this internship you will be providing support for management and editorial control.
