**New to 2018**

The Library of Congress is the largest library in the world, with millions of books, recordings, photographs, newspapers, maps and manuscripts in its collections. The Library is the main research arm of the U.S. Congress and the home of the U.S. Copyright Office.

The Congressional Research Service (CRS) works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing policy and legal analysis to committees and Members of both the House and Senate, regardless of party affiliation. As a legislative branch agency within the Library of Congress, CRS has been a valued and respected resource on Capitol Hill for more than a century.

CRS is well-known for analysis that is authoritative, confidential, objective and nonpartisan. Its highest priority is to ensure that Congress has 24/7 access to the nation’s best thinking.

This summer, CRS is seeking an intern for it’s Resources, Science and Industry Division.

Project Description: The security and integrity of US election infrastructure is expected to be a prominent issue for Congress in the run-up 2018 congressional election. The intern will assist authors in updating CRS reports to Congress on election administration, or CRS products addressing other issues such as environmental and technology policy. The work will involve research and analysis on relevant issues, including cybersecurity, voter registration and identification, and related topics, and assisting in drafting the updates to the reports. The successful candidate will have demonstrated relevant research and writing skills sufficient to perform the required tasks. Educational benefits to the intern will include improvements in those skills and learning about (1) legislative aspects of policy issues, (2) government institutions involved in those issues, and (3) fundamental aspects of the legislative process and policy analysis.
