Association of Research Libraries Names 2013 Career Enhancement Program

From ARL:

The Association of Research Libraries (ARL) Career Enhancement Program (CEP) Coordinating Committee has selected 10 fellows to participate in this competitive diversity recruitment program.

The ARL Career Enhancement Program, funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and ARL member libraries, gives master of library and information science (MLIS) students from underrepresented groups an opportunity to jump-start their careers in research libraries by providing a robust fellowship experience that includes an internship in an ARL member library. This program reflects the commitment of ARL members to create a diverse research library community that will better meet the challenges of changing demographics in research intensive environments and the emphasis on global perspectives in the academy.
