Now in its third year, the myMETRO Researchers program offers myMETRO members an opportunity to build their research chops in a supportive environment. The first two cohorts of myMETRO Researchers have had opportunities to design full-fledged research projects and showcase their results in exciting ways, from presentations at conferences like METRO’s Annual Conference and ARLIS/NA to poster sessions at ALA Annual.
This year’s project, myMETRO Researchers-in-Residence, promises an opportunity for individual researchers to advance their work on a subject that will provide insight into a topic relevant to the library and archives profession. The mission of this program is to provide a toolkit for those who are interested in adding a publication or a major project to their portfolio.
Through individual consultations, a one-on-one session with a publishing industry expert, access to collections across New York City and Westchester County through our METRO Referral Card program, and venues for presenting your work, we’re confidant that the 2014 cohort of myMETRO Researchers-in-Residence will come away with a great set of skills to apply to their work.
To apply for this opportunity, please review the guidelines and application information on our myMETRO Researchers program page. If you’re not a member of our Individual myMETRO Membership Program and would like to be considered for this program, find out more about joining.
