Source sils-jobs@listserv.unc.edu

Description The University of California, Riverside (UCR) seeks a dynamic, user-oriented, early-career librarian to participate in a two-year diversity fellowship program. This program will provide the incumbent with a supportive environment to gain the requisite knowledge, skills, and competencies to thrive in an academic setting, and aims to increase the hiring pipeline of diverse and talented colleagues. Librarians who are interested in pursuing academic librarianship and have demonstrated an interest in, and commitment to, diversity, equity, and inclusion within the library community are particularly encouraged to apply. The incumbent will have access to experienced library leaders and a cohort/network for sharing ideas, resources, best practices, and other opportunities to help gain the professional skills and competencies necessary for success.

Reporting to the Deputy University Librarian, the Library Diversity Fellow will initially participate in a month-long orientation to the library and each department and unit. This will be followed by two 10-month-long embedded rotations in two respective departments. For each rotation the Fellow will learn the functions of the selected department and contribute to departmental services, as well as work on a project or projects focused on some aspect of departmental need. To ensure the best match of skills and interests, selection of specific departments and associated projects will occur as a collaborative process between the Fellow and Fellowship supervisor during the initial month-long on-boarding. The final three months will be spent on professional development, including CV review, interviewing techniques, relevant training opportunities, and completion of the capstone project. The Fellow will be required to demonstrate their investigation of the impact on diversity, equity and inclusion either through the capstone project, or through at least one project selected at the department level.

Capstone Project:
The Fellowship program includes a capstone project. The goal of the capstone is to hone the Fellow’s skills and experience in planning, organizing and executing a major project that will contribute significantly to the UCR Library, and to the profession. The capstone project may feature considerably in the Fellow’s marketability and success. 
Over the course of the first year and as the Fellow’s becomes more knowledgeable and engaged within the Library, the Fellow should be considering and discussing possible capstone topics. During the latter months of year one, the Fellow, in consultation with the Fellows Program supervisor and other library stakeholders, will submit written proposals for one or two possible capstone projects to the supervisor. The supervisor and relevant department heads will review the submissions and select the proposal with the greatest potential to further advance the Library. The final product, including the Fellow’s findings, conclusions, and recommendations, will be shared with library staff via an oral presentation.
