See below for three unique opportunities within the Library Fellowship Program:
The goal of this Fellowship is to amplify a student experience to help guide and shape information literacy instruction at Steely Library. Under the direction of Education & Outreach Services, a student fellow would engage the campus with information literacy in and out of the classroom. They would shadow a librarian in classroom instruction, provide student insight to help create learning objects, explore and help implement inclusive teaching practices, and assist in initiatives that showcase information literacy outside the classroom. Projects will be shaped based on the student fellow’s major, personal interests, and career aspirations.
The goal of this Fellowship is to prepare a bio-bibliography of Kentucky African-American authors, musicians, and/or artists. The student will learn research techniques on searching for titles, authors, genres, intellectual property rights, and geographical information about Kentucky. The bio-bibliography would be subdivided by attributes like genre, gender, and geography. The student will experience the services of the library through demonstrations and shadowing library faculty and staff. This project could become “Volume Two” of the work completed by the 2021 Undergraduate Fellow, Elizabeth Kone. However, it does not have to follow the same format.
The goal of this fellowship is to further the library’s commitment to equity, diversity, and inclusivity in our learning spaces. Under the direction of the Makerspace Coordinator, the student fellow will conduct a literature review and student user studies to inform and create a proposal recommending actions that the library can take to ensure that Stego Studio is an exciting, approachable, and inclusive space for all NKU students. As part of the fellowship experience, the student will learn how makerspace technologies work and gain experience in research and organizational planning within library and higher education environments.
