The Jay Jordan IFLA/OCLC Early Career Development Fellowship Program:
This program, jointly sponsored by the American Theological Library Association, the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) and OCLC, provides early career development and continuing education for library and information science professionals from countries with developing economies.
On an annual basis, up to six individuals, including a theological librarian, are selected for participation in this intensive five-week Fellowship program.
Four weeks are based at OCLC's headquarters in Dublin, Ohio, USA; one week is based at OCLC in Leiden, Netherlands.
The program gives Fellows opportunities to meet with leading information practitioners, visit libraries, and explore topics including information technologies, library operations and management, and global cooperative librarianship.
The Fellows visit selected North American and European libraries, cultural heritage institutions and library organizations.
The Fellows also observe OCLC's governance structure in action, gaining insight into issues affecting the global library cooperative.
Fellows give presentations about their home countries and libraries, meet leading information professionals and discuss real-world solutions to the challenges facing libraries today.
The Fellows translate their learning and experiences into specific professional development plans that guide their continued growth as well as their personal contributions to their home institutions and country of origin.
