In the first joint program of its kind the MIT Libraries and Harvard College Library will co-host “An Exploration of Academic Research Libraries in Cambridge”–a two day conference focused on careers in academic librarianship.
On October 21st a group of 30 library school students and librarians from both the ARL Initiative to Recruit a Diverse Workforce and the ALA Spectrum Scholar Program will visit the MIT Libraries, after spending the previous day at Harvard College Library. The attendees will learn about the many professionally rewarding aspects of a career in academic research libraries. They will have the opportunity to experience the dynamic environment of a 21st century research library from the perspective of two world-renowned academic libraries, and to learn about the activities and initiatives of those who have chosen academic librarianship as a career.
Please join us in welcoming these attendees from across the country to Cambridge and to the MIT campus.
