McIntyre Library Student Employment
Student employment is a necessary part of the college experience for many students. It can also be a transformative educational experience. At McIntyre Library, we work to provide our student employees with support, continuity, mentorship, and meaningful work experiences that contribute to their sense of belonging and success at UW-Eau Claire and beyond. We rely on our dedicated student employees to provide excellent service, collections and operations; we admire their ability to balance challenging academic, work, and personal demands; and we value their contributions to the Library and the University. We appreciate that our student employees often become library advocates, and many even go on to pursue careers in librarianship.
The McIntyre Library Student Employee Scholarship is one way we demonstrate our appreciation for valued student employees. One McIntyre Library student employee is awarded a $500 scholarship each year.

Hear from this Year's Scholarship Recipient
"If it wasn’t for my job in the library within Special Collections, I would probably be on a completely different career path and possibly even a different major entirely This job has shown me that my dream career is more attainable than I would’ve initially thought…. As a first generation college student who is largely paying for school by myself, getting a job while going to school was pretty crucial for my college success….Coming into college at the height of the pandemic made finding my place and fitting into the campus community difficult. Working on campus in the library has made me feel more connected to campus and has given me a small sense of community….”
