Research Library Fellows Program 2013-2015

  
Emory University Libraries announces the Librarian Fellows Program for 2013.
We invite applications from graduates with master's degrees in information
studies or library/information science awarded between May 2012 and June 2013.
Fellows will be appointed to two-year term positions with start dates that may
occur between summer and early fall 2013.

  
Emory University is one of the top-twenty national universities in the U.S.
News & World Report's "America's Best Colleges." Additionally, Emory is
thirteenth in the country for best values among private universities in the
2010 Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine. The university is recognized
internationally for its outstanding liberal arts college, superb professional
schools and one of the Southeast's leading health care systems. Emory and its
environment is a rich setting in which to launch your career.

  
Fellows in this program are able to develop expertise, leadership and project
management skills in placements related to the libraries' three strategic goal
areas:

• Digital Innovations - in services, resources and scholarship;

• Special Collections - featuring services and resources for research and
teaching in modern literature, African American history and culture, southern
history and culture; and

• Customer-centered Library - creating distinctive research environments that
integrate print and digital resources and enable connections among users,
communities, resources, and tools.

  
The Fellows Program will be the first professional position for a new
graduate. The framework for the Fellows experience includes dual tracks; that
is, the Fellow will initially be a member of a primary work team and, during
the first year, will also begin work on special projects and initiatives in
areas outside of the primary area. A range of special projects and initiatives
are underway and will provide the Fellows with opportunities to learn about
and contribute to new developments in research library services. Primary work

assignments for this year are targeting two key areas: 1) GIS services the
Electronic Data Center in the Services Division or 2) university archives in
the Manuscripts, Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL).

  
A fellow in the library's Electronic Data Center will have the opportunity to
develop expertise, leadership, and project management skills in developing
projects and programs for enhancing GIS support and services to faculty and
students. The fellow's work will incorporate and integrate various stages of
the data life cycle such as data creation, data dissemination, and long-term
data management and preservation.

  
A fellow in University Archives will enable the program to continue its
ongoing work of collections acquisitions, arrangement, and description, as
well as its ability to provide high quality research services to patrons.
Fellows in the University Archives will have the opportunity to assist the
University Archives with its new web archiving initiative and newly started
born digital archiving program (for University Archives collections). The
University Archives also plans to enhance and develop its subject, research,
and collection guides online, work which will be beneficial for instructional
purposes, as well as general research use.

  
Qualifications: In addition to a master's degree in information studies or
library/information science awarded between May 2012 and June 2013, we seek
candidates who: demonstrate an understanding of and interest in the mission of

expertise in one of the primary work assignments; demonstrate evidence of
self-directed learning and adaptability; show commitment to professional
growth; demonstrate entrepreneurial and risk taking aptitude; are adept in use
of technologies; communicate effectively and have excellent interpersonal
skills; and show potential for leadership. Applicants must be eligible to work
immediately in the U.S. for a two-year period.

  
Salary and Benefits: $48,000 and comprehensive benefits package including 24
days vacation and ample sick leave benefit. See also [http://www.hr.emory.edu/
eu/benefits/index.html](http://www.hr.emory.edu/eu/benefits/index.html).
Relocation allowance provided. Funding for professional development provided.

1) Letter of application describing your interest in a primary work
assignment;

2) Current resume; and
