You would be the direct supervisor for the department’s three faculty employees and unit supervisors.   


If you bring strong project and self-management skills, exceptional team building skills, and the ability and flexibility to manage change, this may be a great opportunity for you. If you are interested in developing library public services that are equitable, inclusive, and anti-racist, we want to hear from you!

We are aware that some people are less likely to apply for jobs unless they meet every qualification in the job description including the preferred qualifications. We are most interested in finding the best candidate for the job and recognize that a successful candidate may come from a less traditional career trajectory or field of study, such as having skills and abilities gained outside a library context, or an equivalent skill set.
