The Library will support the Fellow’s career interests through mentoring, training, professional development, and participation on library committees.

The Library Diversity Fellow will collaborate with library leadership and colleagues to develop a two-year program that will provide broad exposure to the work of academic librarianship. The program will include on-boarding, mentoring, scholarship and service, as well as practical experience in selected areas of the library.

In the first year of the program, the Fellow will develop skills in library instruction, collaborating with colleagues to teach information literacy to health sciences students and professionals. Both years of the residency will provide opportunities to rotate through other operational areas of the library, which could include collection development, systems, digital collections and repositories, research data management, and special collections. In the second year, the Fellow will develop and complete a capstone project, with the prospect of presenting original research at a conference or in an academic journal. The Fellow will participate in ACRL Diversity Alliance events and activities, and engage in professional service and scholarship.
