December 21, 2012 - The Library of Congress is offering special 10-week paid fellowships to college students again this summer. For a stipend of $3,000, the 2013 class of Junior Fellows will work with Library specialists and curators from May 28 through August 2, 2013, to inventory, describe and explore collection holdings and to assist with digital-preservation outreach activities throughout the Library. The focus of the program is on increasing access to collections and awareness of the Library’s digital-preservation programs by making them better known and accessible to researchers including scholars, students, teachers, and the general public.
The fellows will be exposed to a broad spectrum of library work: copyright deposits, digital preservation, reference, access standards, and information management. In addition to the stipend, fellows will be eligible to take part in programs offered at the Library.
Applications will be accepted through January 25, 2013.
Additional information is available on the Library of Congress website.
