Residency Program

The DU Libraries Residency Program provides early-career librarians with professional experience and mentoring in academic librarianship.

These residency positions are designed to engage librarians who are members of historically underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, providing opportunity to gain experience and skills necessary to thrive as an academic librarian with faculty status. The DU Libraries is a member of the Association of College & Research Libraries Diversity Alliance and is committed to their principles.

The DU Libraries Residency Program began in fall 2019.
