2017 Jay Jordan IFLA/OCLC Early Career Development  Fellowship Program 

2017 Jay Jordan IFLA/OCLC Early Career Development Fellowship Program 

This program provides early career development and continuing 
education for library and information science professionals from 
countries with developing economies. It is jointly sponsored by IFLA 
and the Online Computer Library Center, Inc (OCLC). 

Program overview 

Up to five individuals are selected each year for participation in 
this intensive four-week Fellowship Program based at OCLC's 
headquarters in Dublin, Ohio, USA. The program gives Fellows 
opportunities to meet with leading information practitioners and 
explore topics including information technologies, library operations 
and management, and global cooperative librarianship. 

The Fellows visit many libraries, cultural heritage institutions and 
library organizations. The Fellows also observe OCLC's governance 
structure in action, gaining insight into issues affecting the global 
library cooperative. Fellows give presentations about their home 
countries and libraries and discuss real-world solutions to the 
challenges facing libraries today. 

The Fellows translate their learning and experiences into specific 
professional development plans that guide their continued growth as 
well as their personal contributions to their home institutions and 
country of origin.
