Academic Librarian Positions

Associate Dean for Collections & Scholarly Communication

The Associate Dean for Collections and Scholarly Communication works in close collaboration with a team of senior leaders to advise the dean and advance the library’s strategic and operational goals. All leaders at this level are expected to advocate for and cultivate an environment where diversity of thought and background are valued and the workplace culture is welcoming and inclusive. In this position, you will be responsible for providing leadership and vision related to scholarly communication, collection management, and faculty development. You will also ensure the effective and strategic administration of programs and activities related to teaching, reference, and academic outreach; copyright, digital scholarship, and the institutional repository; cataloging, acquisitions, and ILS discovery. 
 
Associate Deans are encouraged to find creative ways to integrate library initiatives with the campus vision and priorities, so you will cultivate partnerships among the three University Libraries and across the entire University. Effectiveness in this role also means staying current on developments in the field and maintaining a national and international profile/presence to represent the institution in important conversations about the future of scholarly communication. This position is responsible for overseeing multiple departments where approximately half of our faculty are currently assigned, as well as a number of staff. Coaching managers and navigating personnel issues will be a prominent aspect of the role and will require understanding multiple perspectives, balancing multiple interests, and managing difficult conversations.  The position requires someone who can work effectively across organizational lines to accomplish shared goals and communicate effectively with people from all backgrounds. Working in a fast-paced, future-oriented research environment requires adapting to changing needs and priorities while using interpersonal skills to maintain positive relationships.
