Need an IT internship at the US Copyright office for a student?

See Library of Congress (LOC) U.S. Copyright Office

Founded in 1870, the United States Copyright Office has approximately four hundred and fifty employees, the majority of whom examine and register hundreds of thousands of copyright claims in books, music, movies,

software, photographs, and other works of authorship each year. In fiscal year 2011, Copyright Office staff processed more than 700,000 registration claims. The Office’s registration and supporting recordation systems constitute the world’s largest database of copyrighted works and copyright ownership information.


The Copyright Technology Office provides support for the main electronic Copyright Office (eCO) system and other peripheral applications that support daily operations.

This internship provides invaluable knowledge and work experience through a variety of tasks that support automated planning and execution of Copyright Office technology systems. Interns will have an opportunity to work on special projects or supplement staff assignments with technical support while gaining knowledge of established technical procedures and processes, System Development Life Cycle (SDLC), business analysis (i.e., system implementations, IT strategy, and business support services, etc.), and other technical writing assignments (i.e., documenting plans, researching for feasibility studies, incident/problem reports, etc.).
