Library of Congress Librarian-in-Residence Program Information Sessions: January 19 & 20, 2023

Start your career as a Librarian-in-Residence (LIR) at the world’s largest library and the oldest federal cultural institution in the nation, the Library of Congress!

The Librarians-in-Residence program will give early-career librarians the opportunity to gain meaningful work experience alongside esteemed library professionals while benefiting from on-the-job training and mentorship. Selectees will be offered an initial six-month, temporary appointment at the GS-9 pay level. The program is open to students who have earned or will complete their master’s degree at an American Library Association-accredited program between December 1, 2021 and June 30, 2023. 

Students are invited to join us at one of two information sessions to learn details and benefits of the program, get insights on how to apply and hear directly from an LIR participant about their experience.
