University Library Residency Program Working Group

Charge

To create a description of a University Library Residency Program for early-career librarians, including program goals and focus, candidate requirements, and suggested outline of the program itself. Working from the process used to secure the current resident (at Grainger), the taskforce will also examine other residency/fellows programs as possible models.  Additionally, the taskforce will enumerate models for funding support by the Library for residency positions.
