Volunteering at the Library

The UC Berkeley Library Volunteer Program is a pilot program, consisting of a group of library enthusiasts who generously contribute their time and talents to the Library.

The UC Berkeley Library is an internationally renowned research and teaching facility at one of the nationís premiere public universities. It ranks in the top five research libraries annually, and is often ranked the number 1 research library among public institutions.

In a highly-diverse and intellectually-rich environment, Berkeley serves a campus community of 23,000 undergraduate students, 9,000 graduate students, and 1,500 faculty. The Library is comprised of 20 libraries, including the Doe/Moffitt Libraries, The Bancroft Library, and the East Asian Library, collectively offering extensive collections in all formats and robust services to connect users with those collections and build their related research skills.

The Libraryís ability to serve the campus, the State, and the world as a premiere memory institution depends on the quality of all who work here Ė both paid and volunteer staff. It is important that every volunteer feel that he or she is doing meaningful and productive work, and we are eager to match each volunteer with a job that suits his or her schedule and talent. Over time volunteers may become active in more than one area of volunteering, while others are happier specializing in one kind of activity.

All volunteer jobs are posted on VolunteerMatch. Volunteers are invited to find jobs they are interested in applying for at that site. All volunteers are required to go through VolunteerMatch.org and to complete an application and an interview.

I want to volunteer!
