The New Brunswick Libraries Graduate Specialist Program provides opportunities for Rutgers-NB graduate students to use and develop their skills in a variety of methodologies while working with the Libraries to deliver consulting, workshops, and training.  Graduate Specialists are hired to provide support to researchers in topics and methods of growing importance in the scholarly world.  Graduate students hired as Graduate Specialists to help the Libraries expand the range of services offered by bringing advanced skillsets in the latest research methods and tools. Additionally, the Graduate Specialist Program helps the graduate students by giving them a place to prove and hone their skills by bringing services to researchers, gaining significant marketable experience along the way.
