PAGE CONTENTS 1 minute read.

To participate in the Libraries’ graduate assistant program, you must be a full-time graduate student. We welcome a variety of majors into the program, but some jobs may require specific subject specialties. See individual position descriptions for additional required qualifications or training. You may apply for as many positions as you wish.


First, apply to the Libraries’ graduate assistant program by providing the following documents. Submit these documents only once. We will keep them on file.

  • Your resume
  • Unofficial transcript
  • A list of three professional references, which includes contact name, phone number and email address

If you wish to claim veteran’s preference, you should also submit a Veterans Self-Identification form along with applicable documentation such as your DD214. For veteran’s forms please go to the “Veterans Self-Identification Reports” page.

Then, for each position that interests you, submit:

  • A cover letter describing your qualifications. Write one letter for each position. Clearly state the position title in each letter.
  • Any additional required application materials listed in the specific job descriptions.

After all required documents are received, the application packet will be submitted to the hiring manager.
