Still Time To Become a Treasure-Hunter!

Share this post:

The deadline to apply to become a Junior Fellow this summer at the Library is fast approaching (March 31, 2008).  So there’s still time to get your application in!

This program, supported by the Library’s James Madison Council,  is among my most favorite about which to talk with the media and the public.  Every summer for the past few years, up to about 50 students descend on the Library, combing through our trove of copyright deposits and looking for previously unknown or forgotten gems.  And every summer, their discoveries prove fascinating.

What’s not to love about that?

  1. What an interesting way to get people interested in reading! Book trailers are like movie trailers, but for books! You can find them all over the internet now, but here is a site that’s featuring them on YouTube.

  2. What a great program. The thought of being given free access to the LOC on a real mission bounded only by my willingness to explore, makes me want to be a young student again.
