UCLA is accepting application for a Humanities and Social Sciences Librarian.
Reporting to the Director of the Rosenfeld Library and Charles E. Young Research Library Humanities and Social Sciences Division, the Humanities and Social Sciences Librarian provides instruction in the humanities and social sciences and develops strategies to actively engage with scholars during all phases of the research process. Working with campus partners and library colleagues, the incumbent designs, implements and assesses library services and activities.
The Humanities and Social Sciences Librarian will be joining the UCLA Library at an exciting time, joining a newly-formed department that is using a matrix structure to better meet dynamic and evolving campus teaching and research needs. Although physically located in the Research Library, the incumbent will be part of a team working to support users at multiple Library locations and will have the opportunity to help shape that engagement. The incumbent will dedicate 20% of their time assigned in a leadership role in one of the multi-unit functional areas in the User Engagement division – either Collections, Outreach, Research Assistance, Research Partnerships, or Teaching and Learning. The incumbent will play a key role in building this collaborative program at the Library and furthering substantive engagements with the campus. To succeed in this multi-faceted role, the incumbent will need to be team-oriented, with the ability to both lead and support colleagues.
