We create an informed, engaged and scholarly citizenry. Every year is an opportunity to provide professional development and growth opportunities for students who are looking to find success in the library sciences.

The coveted Carolina Academic Library Associates Program (CALA) attracts applicants from across the nation. The CALA provides full tuition, health insurance, mentoring and work assignments within the University Libraries to eight graduate students each year in the UNC School of Information and Library Sciences. This program is a paid, practice-based graduate experience that introduces students to academic librarianship and the culture of the profession. It prepares students directly for their first job in the field.

By cultivating a close relationship between student and faculty and creating room for students to grow and learn, we can pass the best practices in our field to the next generation of librarians.
