The NCSU Libraries Fellows Program provides the launching pad for your career in a leading research library. As a Fellow you will experience the rewards of working with a diverse clientele, including outstanding faculty and students in nationally ranked academic programs. You will gain experience in a highly collaborative work environment with access to key decision makers throughout the organization. You will also develop expertise in a functional area of academic librarianship while contributing meaningfully to an innovative initiative of strategic importance.

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.

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 
● Have cultivated collaboration and communication skills necessary to work effectively in a contemporary library organization through practical work experience and professional development opportunities 
● Under the mentoring of colleagues, have gained demonstrable knowledge related to ongoing relationships with users and be able to articulate appropriate strategies to support education and research

● Be able to demonstrate the project and time management skills necessary to manage successfully complex projects 
● Be able to apply supplemental professional capabilities such as conflict management, emotional intelligence, team training, persuasion methods, etc. 
● 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.

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.

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.
