An alternative option for a September 2024 placement may be available, depending upon graduation date.

The NC State University Libraries is well known for its digital research and experiential learning initiatives, technological advances such as immersive visualization, support for open scholarship and student affordability, interdisciplinary teaching and learning, public engagement with research, and a commitment to championing a culture of belonging and well-being in everything we do—all of which help to actively shape the future of librarianship. The Libraries is also defined by a staff who deeply consider how their approach to their daily work reflects and advances the Libraries’ Strategic Plan, creating an environment and community that is welcoming for both patrons and colleagues alike. We seek out candidates with interests and aptitudes in these areas, and Fellows’ assignments reflect these areas of focus. Fellows perform as entry-level librarians with their time during the first 18 months divided between a home department and an initiative of strategic importance in another area. The second 18 months will typically focus on areas that have emerged over the course of the Fellowship, taking into consideration both the Libraries’ operational needs and the professional interests and goals of the Fellow.
