We are offering three positions this summer 2024 through the Atkins Fellows program at UNC Charlotte. Projects will offer experience with digital humanities research, open access usage, and education collections and technology. Applicants can apply for one or more of the positions. Applications submitted by February 7th will receive first consideration.

The Atkins Fellows program is a ten-week paid summer residential fellowship for students at the mid-point of their Library, Archives, or Information Science degree program, or those within one year of having completed such a program. It is designed to provide each fellow who participates with a work experience that is focused on professional-level tasks, with high levels of independence and creativity, while also supporting Atkins Library's mission, goals, and initiatives. These fellowships are designed to give LIS students hands-on experience in an academic library. The program is hosted by Atkins Library at UNC Charlotte.

Each year, Atkins librarians and staff have the opportunity to propose projects for the Fellows Program. Applications are created for positions and students can apply for one or more of the positions. Interviews with selected applicants will provide an opportunity to speak with the project supervisor(s) and learn more about the position and the program.

Fellows will work at Atkins Library on a specific project throughout the summer. They will also have the opportunity to attend workshops, job talks, and local conferences, as well as job shadow and participate in departmental and all staff meetings. Through this experience, Fellows will learn about the operations of an academic library, better preparing them for work opportunities in the profession.
