About the Program

The Library Fellowship program is designed to create in-depth learning experiences for students. The program is open to undergraduate juniors and seniors and graduate students who are interested in participating in strategic projects for the Jean and Alexander Heard Library over the course of a semester or two. With faculty and professional librarians as mentors, students work on tactical library projects that will benefit library users. Fellows and mentors meet bimonthly to report on their progress throughout the project and present their work at the end of the semester. Selected students learn new skills and complete projects that add to their expertise and resumes. Projects may involve work with rare print and digital collections enhancing accessibility, social media, exhibits and print resources. Through the Library Fellowship program, our libraries promote undergraduate and graduate research.
