The Samuel J. Wood Library/C.V. Starr Biomedical Information Center is the information hub of Weill Cornell Medicine (WCM). We are seeking an Editing and Electronic Resources Librarian who will provide grant editing support to our academic community, as well as information management of electronic resources.
Reporting to the Head of Resource Management, the Editing and Electronic Resources Librarian will coordinate with the Cornell University main campus library in Ithaca, NY and our branch medical campus in Doha, Qatar on new acquisitions and renewal of shared resources, upload license agreements to Alma, review payment of invoices, process bibliographic records for electronic resources in various library systems, and update and manage EZproxy and other library systems.
In addition, as a member of the Library’s Grant Editing Service, the Editing and Electronic Resources Librarian will provide light and medium editing of the language, not the science, of grant applications by WCM faculty.
A Masters in Library Science from an ALA-accredited institution is required. Candidates must have the ability to meet WCM requirements for appointment at the academic rank of Assistant Librarian, including a record of professional achievement, research/scholarship, and service.
Experience in an academic medical center library, with an understanding of modern medical education, research, and clinical care is critical. Most importantly, we are seeking a candidate with strong editorial skills, electronic resources management experience, and the ability to collaborate in a team environment. Such a candidate will have a mature sense of priorities and be able to manage this position’s varied responsibilities.
Salary, while negotiable, is commensurate with experience. A complete job description can be found at https://library.weill.cornell.edu/about-us/staff/career-opportunities-and-internships.
