Recent Graduates of Library and Information Science Master’s Programs Can Apply Beginning Dec. 12
For the third year, the Library of Congress is announcing a Librarians-in-Residence program to offer early career librarians the opportunity to develop their expertise and contribute to building, stewarding and sharing the institution’s national collections.
Applications will be accepted from December 12, 2019 to January 17, 2020. The Library will select up to nine applicants for a six-month residency beginning in July 2020. The program is open to students who will complete their master’s degrees in an American Library Association-accredited library and information science program no later than June 2020 or who completed such a degree no earlier than December 2018.
“We are inviting early career librarians to bring their intellectual engagement, technological prowess and theoretical concepts of library and information science to help us address practical challenges here at the world’s largest library,” said Librarian of Congress Carla Hayden. “The Library of Congress will benefit from their creative thinking, and librarians-in-residence will benefit from the hands-on experience of working with the national collections, side-by-side with experts on the Library’s staff.”
