Where Are They Now? Tracking The Accomplishments of CLIR Postdoctoral Fellows

July-June 2023​

Since its inception in 2004, the CLIR postdoctoral fellowship program has been an exceptional opportunity for recent Ph.D. graduates to gain invaluable experience in academic libraries, archives, and museums. Renowned for its competitiveness, this esteemed fellowship program has provided support to over 200 postdoctoral fellows, many of whom have made remarkable contributions to the field of library and information science.

Throughout this series, we will closely examine the current roles of CLIR postdoc fellows and celebrate their achievements following the conclusion of their fellowships. These individuals have attained remarkable success and have exerted significant influence in their respective domains, ranging from assuming leadership positions in academic libraries to securing tenured faculty roles in universities. We will explore the profound impact of CLIR’s postdoc program on the careers of its alumni and showcase the exciting projects and initiatives they have spearheaded.

In this edition, we shine a spotlight on Petrouchka Moïse, who presently serves as an assistant professor and Cultural & Community-based Digital Curator at Grinnell College Libraries. Notably, Moïse remains a CLIR postdoctoral fellow and recently reached a significant milestone by securing a $350,000 grant in collaboration with Fredo Rivera, an assistant professor of Art History. This prestigious grant is provided by the Humanities Collections and Reference Resources program of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Their joint project, titled “Haitian Art Digital Crossroads,” is focused on digitizing over a thousand Haitian artworks from multiple locations in Haiti and the United States, culminating in the development of a comprehensive multilingual database.
