UT Libraries Seek Applicants for Minority Librarian Residency Program

Successful program seeks new residents

Building on the success of its first program, which was launched in 2003, the UT Libraries is looking for three new candidates for the two-year residency program. The new residency candidates will begin employment in the fall of 2005. The purpose of the program is to attract recent library school graduates from underrepresented groups to a challenging and rewarding career in academic librarianship.

Successful candidates will serve as residents for two years and may be eligible for permanent employment as faculty upon completion of the program. Residents will work closely with librarians to develop skills and career plans, develop collegial relationships with faculty outside the library, participate in library committees, and become involved with professional associations.

Residents will work in several areas of the library and will take part in a variety of initiatives and projects.
