Undergraduate Library Experience

Undergraduate Library Experience


About the Experience

The University Libraries' Undergraduate Library Experience provides undergraduates the experience of seeing how scholarship is communicated and disseminated through work in libraries that is often invisible to the casual user.  It will position students with an interest in academic research to experience more deeply the type of partnerships many researchers have with libraries around projects that enhance the work of their discipline. Experience might be with scholarly communication, metadata, primary resources and artifacts (as found in our Archives or Special Collections), development of open education resources, knowledge discovery tools, bibliography/resource curation of a discipline, digitization, and more.

This is a paid fellowship of $3,500 for a 10 week; 40 hours/week project.
