Deadline Extended: Library Dean’s Fellows Program
Designed to create in-depth learning experiences for students, the Library Dean’s Fellows program is open to undergraduate juniors and seniors and graduate students who are interested in participating in strategic projects for the Libraries over the course of a semester or two. With professional librarians as mentors, students work on tactical library projects that will benefit library users. Selected students learn new skills and complete projects that add to their expertise and resumes.
This year’s projects increase exposure of some of the Libraries’ rarest and most nationally significant collections:
- Special Collections Topics in Wikipedia
- Vanderbilt Television News Archive: Online Exhibit of Presidential Speeches
- Illustrated Editions of Les Fleurs du Mal (1857) by Charles Baudelaire
- Vanderbilt Libraries Website Visual Communications
- Historical Walking Tour of the University
- NurembergÃs Krupp Trial
- Helguera Colombian Collection
The Dean’s Fellows program is designed to provide maximum flexibility for students regarding when and where they work on their strategic projects. Fellows work 20 hours/week and earn $20/hour. The deadline for submission has been extended to September 13.
