Libraries welcome new SC&I/RU Libraries Intern/Resident
The Rutgers University Libraries are pleased to welcome Manuel Jusino, the new School of Communication and Information/Rutgers University Libraries Intern/Resident for 2013-2016. Manuel started his work in the Libraries on August 1st.
Manuel earned a B.S. degree from Gordon College in Wenham, MA in 2005. Since then he has worked in the Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program in the Department of Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and as a S.T.E.M. educator at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City, NJ. He received an M.A. in History from Rutgers-Newark in January 2012.
The SC&I/Libraries Internship/Residency program is designed to provide one student in the Masters of Library and Information Science program at Rutgers with an intensive three-year exposure to the various aspects of professional work within an academic library such as reference, instruction and information services, collection development, access services, administration, digital library systems, preservation, and special collections. Admission to the program is competitive and requires a commitment of three years: two to complete the MLIS degree and work twenty five hours per week in the Libraries (full-time during the summer), and upon graduation, one year in post-graduate residency. The internship carries a full stipend as well as tuition remission.
The Internship/Residency program is jointly administered by the Library and Information Science (LIS) Department of the Rutgers' School of Communication and Information and the Rutgers University Libraries.
The Libraries wish Manuel much success in this position.
