Position Opening: Research Library Fellow at Emory University

Emory_University_SealEmory University Libraries & Information Technology Division announces the
Librarian Fellows Program for 2014. We invite applications from graduates with
master’s degrees in information studies or library/information science
awarded between May 2013 and June 2014. Fellows will be appointed to two-year
term positions with start dates that may occur between summer and early fall

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) digital services in the Emory Center
for Digital Scholarship (ECDS); or 2) research services in the Manuscripts,
Archives, and Rare Book Library (MARBL).

Salary and Benefits: $48,000 (minimum) and comprehensive benefits package
including 24 days vacation and ample sick leave benefit. See also
