Information for Applicants
Radical changes in the information landscape are transforming traditional academic roles and the roles of libraries within the academy. This program prepares a new generation of librarians, scientists, and scholars for work at the intersections of scholarship, teaching and librarianship in the emerging research environment.
CLIR Postdoctoral Fellows in Academic Libraries work on projects that forge and strengthen connections between academic library collections and their users. The program offers scholars the chance to develop new research models, collaborate with information specialists, and explore new career opportunities. Participating libraries benefit from the expertise of accomplished scholars who can invigorate approaches to collection use and teaching, contribute field-specific knowledge, and provide insight into the future of scholarship.
