Interested in Africa? Considering a career as a Librarian? The WARC Library Fellowship program may be a good opportunity for you. The WARC Library Fellowship is designed to provide experience in West Africa for practicing librarians and for the next generation of Africana librarians, and to assist in capacity building at the library of the West African Research Center (WARC) in Dakar, Senegal. Estimated work hours vary from 25 to 35 hours/week.
The WARC Library Fellow will work with the WARC librarian on electronic cataloguing and use of electronic research databases, and should have well developed skills in these areas. Preference will be given to those who have a working knowledge of French. Funding for the WARC Library Fellowship is provided by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the US Department of State through a grant from the Council of American Overseas Research Centers.
