Monifa Carter Selected for the Minnesota Institute


    The University of Delaware Library announces that Monifa Carter, Affiliate Assistant Librarian and Pauline A. Young Resident has been selected to be a participant in the Minnesota Institute for Early Career Librarians from Traditionally Underrepresented Groups to be held on July 10-16, 2010 in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota.

    The selection process is a competitive one and applications were received from around the United States with only twenty-four early academic career librarians chosen for participation. The goal of the Institute is to better equip librarians from underrepresented groups who are early in their careers, with the knowledge and skills to obtain the positions they seek and to succeed as academic librarians.  At the conclusion of the Institute, the librarians in attendance will have gained expertise with critical areas, a better understanding of themselves and behaviors in complex organizations, and a long-term peer group for mutual support and networking.

    Monifa Carter was appointed to the two-year University of Delaware Library Pauline A. Young Residency for the term September 2008 through August 2010.  She received a Bachelor of Arts with a major in English from Denison University and a Master of Library Science from Indiana University in 2008.

    The Pauline A. Young Residency of the University of Delaware Library offers recent graduates of an American Library Association accredited graduate library program a breadth of professional experience in a technology-rich, academic research library setting.  The two-year Residency is designed to meet both the professional goals and interests of the Resident as well as the service and operational priorities of the University of Delaware Library.
