BALTIC INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
Call for Applications
The Yale University Library's Baltic Internship Program, funded by a generous gift from Dr. Kristaps J. Keggi, M.D., aims to bring a visiting library professional from one of the Baltic countries to the Yale Library each year.
The Library is soliciting applications for one Intern from Estonia, Latvia or Lithuania. The selected candidate will spend approximately three months and a half (September 1 - December 15, 2011), at the Yale University Library. The Library will cover all expenses, including visa application and consular fees, round trip transportation from the home country to New Haven, lodging, healthcare and living expenses.
Based in the Slavic and East European Collection, the Baltic Intern will perform professional-level work in collaboration with several units and departments, such as Acquisitions, Area Studies, Cataloging & Metadata, Electronic Collections, Information Technology, Research Collections & Services. This constant interaction will give the Baltic Intern a unique opportunity to observe and experience the day-to-day work of one of the largest academic and research libraries in North America and the world. At the same time, the Baltic Intern will receive training in the selection and acquisition of library resources in a variety of formats. One of the goals of the Program is that the Intern, after his or her return to their native country, is expected to act as a liaison between the Yale University Library and his or her home institution for future cooperation.
The competition is open to mid-career, mid-level professional librarians currently employed full-time by top level libraries or archives in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
Candidates must satisfy the following criteria:
Good communication and interpersonal skills.
Ability to work in a dynamic, diverse and team-oriented environment.
Willingness and capability to act as ambassadors of their own institution, and to further its relationship with the Yale Library.
Willingness and capability to share the fruits of the experience matured at Yale with colleagues at home.
Excellent listening, speaking, and reading skills in English.
Preference will be given to candidates who have not had previous work or internship experience in a library in the Unites States or Canada.
Required application materials are:
1. Cover letter in which the applicant states his or her reasons for applying.
2. Curriculum vitae.
3. Cover letter of support from the applicant's supervisor (or head of the department in which the applicant works), describing the benefits that the visit would have for the applicant's department or library.
Proposals should be sent by e-mail, as Word or PDF attachments, to Tatjana Lorković (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday, July 15, 2011. The selection results will be announced by Monday, August 1, 2011.
