|Wayne State University (Libraries and Library and Information

to receive a 2004 "Recruiting and Educating Librarians for the
21st Century" grant. WSU will receive $743,286 over a three-year
period to recruit and train librarians in the field of "digital
librarianship." Candidates will be chosen from traditionally underrepresented
groups (African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Hispanic-Americans, Arab-Americans,
WSU will partner with three institutions composed of area museums,
libraries, and archives to develop a unique approach to recruit and
educate new digital projects librarians. Twenty individuals from underrepresented
groups will be given stipends and/or tuition waivers to attend the
LIS program at WSU. During the course of their program they will be
placed in a mentoring relationship with senior librarians in the fields
of systems, digital project development, metadata, digital archives,
and museum management.
The first year of the grant is aimed at recruiting individuals to the LIS program. During years two and three these students will attend classes and will work part-time at the WSU libraries, the Michigan State University libraries, Detroit Historical Museums, Detroit Public Library and the Reuther Archives. Students will rotate so that at the end of their program they will have experience working on digital projects at an academic institution, a public library, an archives, and a museum.
IMLS is funding $743,286 for stipends and salaries and WSU and
our partners are providing a match of $199,341 in staffing and tuition
waivers. The Multicultural Roundtable will support this initiative
to ensure its success. For more information please contact, Duryea

an important message.
