Atkins Fellows Program

The Atkins Fellows program is an eleven-week summer residential fellowship for students at the mid-point of their Library, Archives, or Information Science degree program. It is designed to provide each Fellow who participates with a work experience that is focused on professional-level tasks, with high level of independence and creativity, while also supporting Atkins Library's mission, goals, and initiatives. These fellowships are designed to give LIS students hands-on experience in an academic library.
