Dear Colleagues,

I would like to share some information on a fellowship opportunity at the Library of Congress for undergraduate and graduate students with Malay/Indonesian-language skills. The fellowship on offer is part of the Library of Congress Junior Fellows Summer Intern Program (https://go.usa.gov/xM7qE), and involves working on a project titled “Winning Hearts and Minds: Malay and Indonesian Titles.”

The project seeks to have Malay and Indonesian titles in the Library’s Franklin Book Program (FBP) collection inventoried to make them more discoverable. In addition to working on an inventory of these titles, the Junior Fellow will research the history of the FBP in Malaysia and Indonesia to prepare a post for LC’s 4 Corners of the World blog. The Junior Fellow will also work on an online research guide on the FBP collection started by previous fellows and a South Asia librarian. In collaboration with the project mentor, the Junior Fellow will identify and describe materials representative of this project for an exhibit presentation near the conclusion of the program.

For a full description of this project and information on how to submit an application (due by Nov. 8, 2021), please see the program website (https://go.usa.gov/xM7qE). If you know students who would be interested in this opportunity, please feel free to share this announcement with them. 

Thank you.

Best regards,
