Marjo Dobbs Arseneau Memorial Librarianship Award

Marjo Dobbs Arseneau

The Marjo Dobbs Arseneau ’89 Memorial Librarianship Award was first given in 2000. Marjo worked for McCain Library when she was a student. She earned her master’s degree at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill and then pursued a career as an academic librarian. Tragically, Marjo lost her life to breast cancer in 1997. Because of her love for both Agnes Scott College and librarianship, her classmates (the class of 1989), friends and family joined together to create a memorial fund to honor her life through this award.

The annual Arseneau Award (normally $500 or more) goes to an Agnes Scott College junior or senior who either is committed to pursuing a career in librarianship by enrolling in a master of library/information science program, or has made significant contributions to McCain Library as a student assistant.

Employment - Student

During the first two weeks of the semester, McCain Library hires students eligible for work-study positions.  Students are generally hired initially to staff the Circulation Desk and depending on their performance review may be presented with opportunities to work in Archives and the Noble Heritage Center, Interlibrary Loan Department, or at the Reference Desk - in some cases students will be hired directly into one of these positions.  All open work-study positions will be posted in Hire a Scottie.  Only students eligible for work-study will be able to apply.  Please contact Stephany Kurth at with any questions.

Employment - Staff/Librarian

All open full- and part-time positions will be posted at

Internships/Volunteer Opportunities

McCain Library does not have a formal internship program but is willing to consider requests to intern (as a volunteer) with McCain Library, depending on the current workload of the staff and the ability to provide adequate supervision and training.  Priority will be given to current Agnes Scott College students and alumnae.  Please contact Casey Long at
