Employment Opportunities at the Gould Library

Reference & Instruction Liaison Librarian for Humanities and Digital Scholarship

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 takes place 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.
