2019 – 2022 Residency

The UI Libraries offers early-career librarians or librarians new to research libraries, the opportunity for their first professional-level experience in academic librarianship via its Residency Librarian Program. The three-year appointment is designed to provide an immersion into academic librarianship, an opportunity to focus on areas of interest, and funding to support professional engagement at the national level. By participating in the Resident Librarian Orogram, individuals will demonstrate skills at a professional level, develop a professional network, and be prepared for their next career opportunity. Resident librarians are not eligible for promotion but have access to benefits, paid leave, etc. They may apply for regular positions for which they feel qualified but are not guaranteed continued employment following the residency.
