2008/09 Kress Fellowship in Art Librarianship at Yale University

The Kress Fellowship is intended for a recent graduate from library school who wishes to pursue a career in art librarianship. Through this fellowship, the Kress Foundation seeks to achieve in the field of art librarianship what it has accomplished for art history and art conservation: ensuring the growth of the discipline by promoting the advancement of new professionals.

This year the focus of the Kress Fellowship will be on all aspects of public services in the arts, which will include experience in providing reference, instruction, and outreach as well as designing and undertaking an innovative exploration of a specific aspect of these services. During their tenure at Yale Kress Fellows are expected to pursue a mutually agreed-upon project resulting in a publishable paper or a new library service. Kress Fellows are also introduced to a broad spectrum of professional activities beyond public services and will have the opportunity to perform collection development activities, interact with a variety of special collections, and participate in the work of library committees and external professional organizations.
