ATKINS FELLOWS PROGRAM
The Atkins Fellows program is an eleven-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.
Fellows will work 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.
