Description:. http://www.lib.ncsu.edu/fellows/about

The NCSU Libraries is well known for its technological advances and commitment to defining the future of librarianship. We seek out candidates with interests and aptitudes in these areas and Fellows’ assignments reflect these areas of focus. Fellows perform as entry-level librarians half-time in a home department. The remaining time is devoted to an initiative of strategic importance in an area outside the home department.

The Libraries recognizes that self-determination is an important consideration. During the interview process, candidates learn more about the Libraries’ departments and initiatives. Candidates are then given the opportunity to indicate their preferences for department and project assignments. The Libraries makes assignments that consider those preferences.

How to Apply: Early! The vacancy announcement for the new Fellows class is posted to our website in the summer of the year prior to the anticipated start date for the new cohort of Fellows. So, that means you might be applying for the Fellows program anywhere from a few months to an entire year before you graduate.

We suggest you address your letter “Dear Members of the Nomination Committee.” The committee membership changes annually and will be posted on the website with the vacancy announcement upon selection.

Deadline: We do not set a deadline in advance for applications. We continue to accept applications until finalist candidates are selected, the timing of which can vary. We often do, however, include language in the vacancy announcement encouraging candidates to apply by a certain date. This is offered as a guideline only. If you see the vacancy announcement posted and the link to the online application system is still live, we are still accepting applications. Also note that on the online application system you will see a date in the box marked “Must Be Open Until.” THIS IS NOT A DEADLINE. We are required to post vacancies for a certain number of working days. This box only indicates that the job MUST remain open until a certain date. The vacancy announcement will remain open well after that date

The goal of the Center is to serve scholars, tourists, teachers, curious citizens, and students of all ages as they explore the life and achievement of the 26th President of the United States. Launched to the public in late 2011, the Theodore Roosevelt Digital Library is the primary portal the Center uses to convey that goal to a national audience. Nearly 50,000 items from 32 different collections are already available at www.theodorerooseveltcenter.org

The Center has over 150,000 digitized documents from the Theodore Roosevelt Papers at the Library of Congress, including letters to and from Roosevelt, newspaper clippings, speeches and executive orders, photographs, maps, and personal diaries. Around 10,000 items have been digitized from other collections, such as the Prints and Photographs Division of the Library of Congress, sites within the National Park System, and Harvard College Library

Description: The Center is seeking interns to help with creation and review of metadata for these documents in our online database. Interns will work a minimum of 240 hours (approximately six weeks), participating in all facets of the development of the digital library. These will include cataloging (viewing documents on a computer screen and typing and reviewing information in a Web-based form), reviewing the work of other catalogers to make sure all standards are being met, and copyright review of collections in order to clear them for publication.

The Theodore Roosevelt Center’s website includes interpretive content, such as articles and timelines that promote the understanding of Theodore Roosevelt’s life. This content utilizes the same subject headings as the items in the digital library to enhance the relationship with primary source documents. Candidates selected for the internship will be asked to use a digital humanities tool of their own choosing to create a visualization that will be shared on the Center’s blog.

Since the work is web-based, the internships will be conducted remotely. Interns do not need to relocate to Dickinson, North Dakota, to complete their work. Training will be provided through an online classroom environment throughout the internship.
