Employment Opportunities at the Gould Library

Reference & Instruction Liaison Librarian for Languages & Cultures

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.  Responsibilities of the position include:

  • Discipline-based liaison duties and general reference services;
  • Collaboration with faculty in integrating information literacy into the curriculum
  • Support of undergraduate students from their first year seminars through their senior comprehensive project
  • Participation in the Bridge Consortium, a highly collaborative consortium with St. Olaf College Libraries. The Reference & Instruction Librarian will work collaboratively and in tandem with peers at the St. Olaf College Libraries.

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; 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.
