Marriott Library Jobs
Academic Librarian Positions
The J. Willard Marriott Library is seeking candidates for their Librarian Residency Program. The program is intended to increase faculty diversity at the Marriott Library and to encourage people from traditionally underrepresented or underserved groups to choose the University of Utah as a place to launch their careers in academic librarianship. This two-year residency will be the incumbent's first professional library position; it will orient the Resident Research Assistant Librarian to academic librarianship through a broad range of activities designed to develop the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in future library positions and contribute fully to the profession. This program is designed to meet the Resident's professional goals and interests in conjunction with the library's priorities.
The Resident will be supervised by the Residency Coordinator, who will provide oversight and consistency throughout the experience. During the first year, the Resident will rotate through the library's four departments: Research and Learning Services, Special Collections, Information Technology Services, and Scholarly Resources and Collections. The Resident will have meaningful work assignments that contribute to each department's success. Each rotation will build the Resident's understanding of the library's mission, role, and structure; the Resident's practical skills in meeting stakeholder needs; and the Resident's ability to adapt to new situations and work with many different groups. At the end of the first year, the Resident will have a solid grounding in the profession and a strong sense of how to integrate into a new organization. The Coordinator will work with the Resident to develop a personalized professional development plan that includes service activities, committee assignments, conference attendance, and training opportunities at the library, campus, regional and national levels. The Resident Librarian will also benefit from mentoring relationships with faculty throughout the library.
