Description The Library at the University of California, Davis, seeks two dynamic, user-oriented, early-career librarians to participate in a two-year Diversity Fellowship Program. The goals of the program are to 
● Advance diversity and equal opportunity in the profession by recruiting individuals with the potential for leadership in addressing the barriers that have prevented individuals from traditionally underrepresented ethnic or racial minority groups, gender or gender identities, or physical or cognitive abilities from full participation in careers in academic librarianship 
● Recruit to the Library of the University of California, Davis, for the duration of the fellowship, individuals relatively new to working in a research library by providing opportunities to 
○ contribute meaningfully to defining the changing role of research libraries and the required workforce of the future 
○ acquire meaningful, practical experience in a research library in a top-rated research institution 
This program will provide the incumbents with a supportive environment to gain the requisite knowledge, skills, and competencies to thrive in an academic library setting with a focus on promoting undergraduate and professional student academic success and life-long learning.

Early-career librarians who are interested in pursuing academic librarianship and have an interest in contributing meaningfully to defining the changing role of research libraries and the required workforce of the future, as well as those interested in acquiring meaningful, practical experience in a research library in a top-rated research institution are encouraged to apply. The Fellows report to the Head of Student Services and will participate in a team of professionals to work collaboratively to develop, implement, and support library information services for students of UC Davis.

Position Responsibilities

Under the general supervision of the Head of Student Services, the Fellows will, by the end of the program: 
● Participate in providing services that support the information and research needs of undergraduate and professional students, and effectively deliver services, resources, and outreach activities that advance the Library’s mission
● Be able to demonstrate requisite experience and skills to compete for a position in an academic library credibly 
● Have had the opportunity to explore various roles in an academic library, shape their professional aspirations, and see how different functional units interact and contribute to the library as a whole

● Be able to contribute to shaping the field of librarianship through research and scholarship, and possess the communication skills and perspective to contribute to discussions about professional practice 
● Have received specific professional development and training focused on beginning their professional career (such as carrying out a job search, negotiating an offer for a professional position, and seeking a professional mentor)

During the first year of the fellowship, the Fellows will gain knowledge and work experience in the UC Davis Library, primarily in the Student Services department. They will also be introduced to other facets of research librarianship, in areas such as research consultation and support, cataloging and metadata services, archives and special collections, health sciences, collection strategies, scholarly communications, online services, and data science and management.

The second year will be focused on appropriate project work, with specifics defined as the first year draws to a close in consultation among the Fellows, their supervisor, and others. The projects will be tailored to the Fellows’ expertise, interests, and skills, and ideally will address Library strategic or programmatic needs. The second year will culminate with a presentation, poster session, or paper, or some such similar effort, about the projects.
