W&M Libraries Mosaic Program

William & Mary Libraries is committed to encouraging and supporting students interested in pursuing library careers. We are pleased to announce the launch of the Mosaic Program for William & Mary post-baccalaureate and undergraduate students.

The program provides valuable, paid library work experience to students looking to pursue library careers. Developed in response to the newly adopted W&M Libraries Diversity Plan, this program has been designed to provide the support and opportunities needed to encourage, develop and grow future librarians, archivists and library professionals.

Selected students will work with an assigned mentor to draft position goals and duties that support the priorities and initiatives of W&M Libraries. Positions will be tailored to match applicants’ interests.

W&M Libraries is committed to building a culturally diverse cohort and strongly encourages applications from underrepresented candidates.

Possible project areas include:

  • Archives/special collections
