Residency programs, professional experiences for early career librarians, are receiving increasing attention in the library community—both from recent graduates seeking their first post-MLS positions, and from institutions interested in recruiting new librarians in the field.  Library residents are engaged in a number of valuable opportunities during their residencies, such as making rotations through multiple departments, receiving enhanced professional development support, and producing capstone projects that contribute to their library’s growth. In addition, many residencies specifically target new librarians from underrepresented groups, thus enabling institutions to recruit candidates with fresh perspectives, an array of skill sets, knowledge of the latest technologies, as well as rich personal backgrounds and the passion to help contribute to diversity efforts on campus.  In this webcast, residents and residency coordinators will engage with attendees on the opportunities afforded by such programs, and the considerations host institutions should bear in mind in either initiating or further developing their current programs.  Experienced voices from the ACRL Residency Interest Group will address different types of residency models being implemented at various institutions, discuss the expectations and challenges facing library residents participating in such programs, and provide recommendations on how to develop and cultivate residency programs to ensure their continued growth and success, both for the residents as well as their host institutions. This program will provide the vital information needed for planning or reinvigorating an academic library residency program.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Participants will be able to identify the resources and administrative support needed to implement or enhance a residency program at their institution.
  • Participants will gain a comprehensive understanding the mutual benefits and commitments of a residency program, from the point of view of both residents and their host institutions.
  • Participants will be able to recognize the different types of program models, projects, and overall outcomes/impact that residencies can play in supporting diversity and mentorship in the library profession.

Presenter(s): Tarida Anantachai, Syracuse University; Rosalinda Linares, University of Louisville; Patricia MacDonald, Towson University
