The James E. Brooks Library faculty announce a graduate assistantship
program for individuals who already have an MLS, or equivalent, and who
desire a second subject master degree. This unique two-year program
allows an individual to study in any of eighteen graduate programs while
gaining valuable professional experience in an academic library. Ideal
for new or experienced tenure-seeking librarians, candidates must apply
to the graduate school and be accepted into a program prior to being
accepted as a paid library graduate assistant.
The assistantship is really two programs; an opportunity to gain
valuable professional experience under the tutelage of professional
librarians while getting that second, often necessary, advanced degree
required at many academic libraries. For experienced librarians this
assistantship is also two programs; a chance to advance by studying for
an advanced degree while renewing and recharging one's self during an
extended leave of absence.
Total benefits include a stipend of $7,120, plus paid tuition, medical
insurance and health center fees equaling approximately $13,888 per
academic year. Summer study and employment opportunities may also be
Opportunities are available for candidates to gain professional
experience in reference, instruction, library technology and systems,
technical services, outreach, archives and record management, government
publications, maps, assessment and research.
