Center for Careers, Life, and Service

Whether you’re interested in identifying your strengths, launching your career, serving the community, or pursuing post-graduate study, Grinnell’s Center for Careers, Life, and Service (CLS) is here to help. You can meet with CLS staff to discuss career planning; identify service opportunities; find internships and job-shadows; apply for graduate school or post-graduate fellowships; and hone resumes, applications, and cover letters.

Library Lab

A library lab is research consultation, an opportunity for a student or a small group of students to meet with a librarian and discuss an academic research project. Soon after you submit a lab request, a librarian will contact you to set up a day and time to meet. During this meeting, the librarian will teach you useful research skills and strategies, such as how to identify and use relevant print and electronic resources. Whenever you have a challenging research question or problem, that’s the time to request a library lab.
