Have you been wanting to come work at Carleton? Here’s your opportunity!
The library at Carleton College seeks a Reference & Instruction librarian to join us in a lively, imaginative and team-based program of information resources and services. The library is committed to an intellectual partnership with the faculty in integrating information literacy into the curriculum of the college. Our information literacy program is linked to a college-wide initiative to address the basic literacies (information, quantitative, visual, writing, and speaking) that cut across the curriculum.
This is an ideal position for someone who is 1) looking for an opportunity to work in an institution focused on teaching, in collaboration with an unusually fine group of students, faculty and colleagues; 2) committed to excellence in teaching and to information literacy as a liberal art; and 3) deeply rooted in and excited about interdisciplinary or area studies. We place a high value on a solid grounding in the world of books and scholarly information.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact either me or the Head of Reference and Instruction — we’re both on the search committee and happy to talk to you about the position. My contact information is here, and Ann’s is here.
Edited to add: Some people have asked if we are deliberately looking for entry-level librarians, and the answer is that we are deliberately NOT restricting our pool to only people who have a specific amount of experience. If you would like to come work with us, please apply!
