Librarian-In-Residence Program

Hesburgh and Law LibrariesThe Librarian-In-Residence Program at Notre Dame is intended to recruit a recent library school graduate who can contribute effectively to the diversity of the profession and the university while developing career interests in various aspects of academic librarianship. The Diversity Committee designed the program to accommodate both the professional interests of a successful recruit and the needs of the libraries. The program definition, therefore, is drawn in broad terms, allowing one residency to be different from another in order to achieve relevancy for a resident, the University Libraries and the Law Library. The programmatic goals establish the program’s parameters. During the first year of the two-year program, the resident will gain meaningful work experience within a minimum of three library departments or functional units. The second year will be defined in consultation with the resident and others as the first year draws to a close. The year will be tailored to the resident’s interests and the libraries’ needs with time afforded for a research and/or a writing project. The resident’s general experience with research and law libraries will be gained through participation in administrative assignments, library committees, specialized training, and professional activities. The resident is eligible for travel support to pursue professional activities. Appointed as a Visiting Librarian, the resident’s rank and salary are commensurate with experience and qualifications.
