Post-Master's Residency Programs: Fostering Success and Diversity in Librarianship

When:  Jun 18, 2019 from 9:00 AM to 10:00 AM (ET)
Residencies are one way to help increase diversity within the library profession. This session will focus on the Mary P. Key Diversity Residency at the Ohio State University Libraries. The panelists, one residency coordinator and two current residents, will discuss the historic and current design of their program, practical skills gained, favorite experiences, and challenges with the residency. Participants will come away with a broader understanding of diversity residencies that can lead to new ideas about how to design residencies for early-career librarians and increase diversity in our profession.
