LES Job Shadowing Program

Realizing the importance of recruiting future librarians, the ACRL Literatures in English section has begun a job shadowing program for those interested in becoming Humanities Librarians.  Job shadowing is a way for potential librarians to learn more about the field of librarianship and the day-to-day work of a librarian.  It will also help future librarians form mentoring relationships and begin the important work of networking.  This program is open to anyone in the United States.  We welcome undergraduate students, graduate students, and those considering switching careers.   LES will match those interested in a job shadowing opportunity with volunteers from LES.  The actual job shadowing usually takes place over the course of one day.

If you are interested in being hosted by an LES librarian, please fill out this form. We will attempt to match you with an academic librarian working at an institution in your area.

If you are an LES member who would like to volunteer to host someone, please contact Arianne Hartsell-Gundy at hartsea@muohio.edu.  If you’ve previously expressed interest in hosting someone, your name is on the list and there’s no need to let me know again.

Please feel free to pass this information on to anyone you think might be interested.  More information can be found here.
