Our popular open-event is back - and this time, it's a webinar! This event is open to anyone in the UMD community and covers the basics of academic librarianship and the tips and tricks of the job application process. Although this event is not explicitly focused on the Fellowship, we do include the Fellowship as a possible path to academic librarianship and are happy to answer questions about the Fellowship during the Q&A. This is typically offered in late October or early November. Check back here for dates!
