The latest issue of Issues in Science and Technology Librarianship is a special issue on Science Librarianship and Social Justice, and it features an article we wrote about our annual NCDS Data Internship:

Recruitment Techniques for LIS Internship Applicants of Color: Case Study of a Paid Medical Data Internship Program

By: Justin de la Cruz, Genevieve Milliken, Nicole Contaxis, Miguel Juárez, Peace Ossom

This article focuses on the formation and recruitment techniques we used for our internship program. It took a lot of contributions to launch this internship, and we would like to acknowledge the paid and unpaid labor behind the roles of the application coach, the external application reviewers, the project sites and their internship liaisons, and all others who contributed to the success of the program. We would also like to thank Negeen Aghassibake, the NCDS Internship Application Coach, for assisting with information gathering for this article. Lastly, we would like to thank the support of the “Leading the Charge: Advancing the Recruitment, Retention and Inclusion of People of Color within the Library and Information Science Field” IMLS Grant project team.
