|Title||Research & Learning Librarian (Assistant or Associate, Fine Arts/Architecture Emphasis)|
|Department||Libraries - Research & Learning (1707)|
The University of Arizona Libraries seek a dynamic and proactive librarian: a self-starter who thrives in a fast-paced, service-oriented environment and who welcomes each new challenge as a new opportunity. Librarians in the Department of Research & Learning are key partners in the University’s research enterprise and educational mission. They engage faculty and researchers across all disciplines and serve as a conduit for active and open communication between academic units and the Libraries as a whole. They develop campus partnerships that place librarians, and the expert services and resources they provide, into critical faculty workflows and at key points across the educational continuum.
As a whole, the Research & Learning (R&L) Department provides point-of-need assistance and consultation across all research services, as well as expert services and support in assigned areas. The department is also responsible for implementing the Libraries’ instructional program and, with other library units, for information resources management. While the area of emphasis for this position is expected to be in fine arts and architecture, qualified candidates with other backgrounds (e.g., humanities, social & behavioral sciences, etc.) are encouraged to apply.
This is a continuing-eligible or continuing track, academic professional position. Incumbents are members of the general faculty and are entitled to all accompanying rights and privileges granted by the Arizona Board of Regents and the University of Arizona. Retention and promotion are earned through achievement of a record of excellence in position effectiveness, scholarship, and service.
