      NCSU Libraries Fellows Program 2007 - 2009
    • 3. Why Choose the NCSU Libraries for your first professional position?
      • “ The Fellows program offered a level of variety and a "big picture" perspective of academic libraries that would be difficult to gain from any regular entry-level position. Serving on library-wide committees and projects and attending conferences allowed me to explore a range of issues instead of focusing exclusively on my own specialization in graduate school, archival administration.”
      Anna Dahlstein, Director of External Relations, NCSU Libraries, and former Fellow, 2002 - 2004, with Susan K. Nutter, Vice Provost and Director of Libraries
