Lisa Cruces has been awarded an IMLS-RBS Fellowship for Early-Career Librarians.

The IMLS-RBS Fellowship program is designed to educate early-career special collections librarians, with an emphasis on recruiting participants currently underrepresented in the field. Fellowships include funding for a course at Rare Book School and attendance to the annual conference of the Rare Books and Manuscripts Section (RBMS) of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL).

The program is funded by a grant from IMLS through the Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program, and includes a previous cohort of twenty fellowships awarded last year. The grant also funds a replicable, longitudinal study of the program’s impact on the professional development and career growth of participating fellows.
