The Fisher Family Library Fellowship for Inclusive Excellence Program is designed for recent MLIS graduates who want the opportunity to learn about academic libraries and acquire core competencies and skills in academic librarianship. The program allows the Library Fellow the unique opportunity to work in a variety of programmatic and functional areas, explore new information technologies, collaborate on projects related to inclusion, equity, and accessibility, and to participate in a challenging and rewarding work environment. A flexible program will be developed to balance the Library Fellow’s individual goals and professional interests with the Libraries’ needs. Library Fellows will have the option of focusing on a single specialization or rotating through multiple departments. In addition, the Library Fellow’s professional interests will be supported with a mentoring program, specialized training, continuing education, and participation on library committees.
We are seeking two candidates for two fellowship positions.
This is a fully funded, two-year contract appointment as a Professional Track Faculty within the Faculty Specialist ranks as established by the University of Maryland. The position is available as early as July 1, 2024, but the start date is negotiable. Visa sponsorship is not available for this position. (Need to have the MLIS by the candidate’s start date.)
