Congratulations to the RTI ’24 Participants!

MLA is pleased to announce the 2024 Research Training Institute (RTI) participants! The RTI ’24 online program is a successful, immersive research training program that provides advanced research methods training and mentoring for one year while participants complete a research project. Participants also present their projects at a special RTI poster session at the MLA annual conference. The RTI ’24 program consists of 32 participants, including 13 embedded LIS graduate students. The program will be taught by a team of experienced and expert research faculty/mentors with additional mentoring support from 5 peer coaches who are former RTI Fellows. The RTI ’24 participants were chosen by a selective submission process with an emphasis on a desire to learn, enthusiasm for research, and the quality of their proposed research topics. Congratulations to the RTI ’24 participants!
