Pauline A. Young Residency

Pauline A. Young

The Pauline A. Young Residency offers early career development and professional work experience in an academic research library to recent graduates of ALA-accredited graduate library education programs.

The Residency is designed to accelerate professional growth and career advancement through a variety of professional work experiences, mentoring, committee service and conference attendance.

"I was initially attracted to the residency position for the opportunity to work in a technology-rich, dynamic, multimedia environment. The flexible, individualized professional development plan and strong commitment to diversity were also important to me. During the residency program I collaborated on the development of a breadth of multimedia products and services, including the implementation of a new campus multimedia literacy program. Because of the residency experience, I feel very well prepared as I continue to grow and develop as an academic librarian."
