The internship will take place online, although we may ask students to attend occasional in-person team meetings at the internship centre, located in the UOC's Barcelona centre (Rambla del Poblenou, 156).

  • In addition, you will help with collection management tasks: locating content, platform analysis and contact with publishing groups. You will also assist with the implementation of a new resource manager.

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.

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.

A creative internship programme which enables you to put the knowledge you have acquired during your studies into practice. Observe and give us your ideas, we want to hear your thoughts.

  • 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.
     

You will become familiar with linguistic quality analysis methods and strategies, which is a fundamental aspect of the work done by a professional language consultant.
