Johnson C. Smith University will develop and execute a training and internship program that introduces undergraduate students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities to a wide range of careers and opportunities within the fields of Library Science, Archives, and Cultural Preservation. This three-year program will develop and use online instruction and hands-on experiences curated by qualified practitioners to expose undergraduates to the library and archives professions and consequently work to address the field's diversity gap. Students will learn the basics of archival and preservation practices and gain leadership skills through digital courses, internships, and two Summer Institutes.
