The NCSU Libraries Fellows Program provides the launching pad for your career in a leading research library. As a Fellow you will experience the rewards of working with a diverse clientele, including outstanding faculty and students in nationally ranked academic programs.

You will also develop expertise in a functional area of academic librarianship while contributing meaningfully to an innovative initiative of strategic importance. In addition to a competitive salary, the Libraries provides Fellows a generous professional development stipend.
The success of the Program is illustrated by the success of its graduates. Launched in 1999, eighty-two Fellows have completed the Program. Ninety-five percent of Fellows have been offered academic positions or have entered doctoral programs upon completion of the Program. Many former Fellows, including six named as Library Journal Movers and Shakers, are recognized as leaders in the field, adding to the reputation of the Program as a training ground for library trailblazers.
The NC State University Libraries is well known for its technological advances and commitment to defining the future of librarianship. 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 half-time in a home department. The remaining time is devoted to an initiative of strategic importance in an area outside the home department.
The Libraries recognizes that self-determination is an important consideration. During the interview process, candidates learn more about the Libraries’ departments and initiatives. Candidates are then given the opportunity to indicate their preferences for department and project assignments. The Libraries makes assignments that consider those preferences.Other Work/ResponsibilitiesMinimum Education/Experience
