Academic Librarian Positions


Benefited Staff Positions

Acquisitions Assistant

The Marriott Library is hiring two Acquisitions Assistants who will order and process new physical and electronic library resources. As Acquisitions Assistant, you would perform advanced ordering procedures and process requests for specialized areas such as foreign languages, subscriptions, and technical materials. You would have the opportunity to work with foreign, domestic and specialized vendors, library users, and other library employees. Common job duties would include troubleshooting problems, managing records, and operating online systems and database platforms. To be successful in the role, you will need to have the ability to exercise sound judgment in resolving complex problems and the ability to analyze and solve technical problems.

This position is currently designed as a hybrid of on-campus and remote work. Specific telecommuting arrangements will be based on the needs of the position and authorized at the discretion of the supervisor. 

We seek qualified applicants who also bring perspectives and experiences that will enrich and strengthen our organization. We especially invite applications from candidates who may not have followed a traditional educational or professional path. All candidates should be prepared to discuss how they see themselves contributing to the University’s equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts. The library serves an increasingly diverse constituency of patrons, and our employees, services, collections, and policies should honor and reflect this diversity. We are therefore interested in identifying and interviewing candidates who have experience with underserved or marginalized communities and communities of color and who are committed to advancing our mission to provide equitable access to information resources.
