Get your applications in! The search is underway!

Come work with me! The search committee for our Reference & Instruction Liaison Librarian for Humanities and Digital Scholarship position is meeting soon to start reviewing applications, so get your application in soon. I’ve gotten a sneak peak at some of the job duties as I’ve been the interim digital scholarship person, and it’s really a neat area to be involved in on our campus. What started as an experiment is now growing wings, so it’s right at that interesting stage where there’s a lot going on and a great network of people to work with, but it isn’t a solidified program on campus so the new librarian will have plenty of room to move the program in interesting directions.

Also, you’d get to have a trading card made for you to match this year’s postcard theme.

Here’s the job ad:

Carleton College seeks a Reference and 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. Our digital scholarship work happens throughout the library and is done in close collaboration with colleagues on the faculty and in ITS.  We place a high value on a solid grounding in the world of scholarship, regardless of format.

This is an ideal position for an individual 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; 3) deeply rooted in and excited about humanities research; and 4) engaged in the methods of digital scholarship and its application to the liberal arts.

The full job description and application instructions can be found here:

Founded in 1866, Carleton is a private, highly selective liberal arts college with 1950 undergraduates located in Northfield, Minnesota, 45 miles south of Minneapolis and St. Paul. Best known for its academic excellence and warm, welcoming campus community, Carleton offers 37 majors and 15 concentrations in the arts, humanities, natural sciences, and social sciences. Carleton is committed to attracting and retaining a diverse group of faculty and staff and offers a comprehensive benefits package.
