In support of developing the next generation of librarians and information professionals, the Librarians-in-Residence program will give early-career librarians the opportunity to gain meaningful work experience in at least one track of the following: Acquisitions and Collection Development, Cataloging and Metadata, Collection Preservation, Reference and Instruction, and Systems and Standards.
The Library of Congress is offering nine positions in 2020. The application period is December 12, 2019 – January 17, 2020. More information can be found on the Library’s Internships and Fellowships page.
Participants receive on-the-job training and undertake assignments that contribute to the ongoing mission and work of the Library. They participate in enrichment assignments and receive mentoring from seasoned professionals. They are also expected to participate in Library-wide activities, such as the National Book Festival, and to provide information sessions concerning their professional interests to Library staff as well as report back to their graduate programs on experiences as Librarians-in-Residence.
