The Relay Librarian, managed by the Senior Director of Library and Instructional Media, will play an integral role in supporting the learning, teaching, research, and information needs of the Relay community by providing exemplary library services to faculty and students across the country. The Librarian will organize and maintain a large digital information collection and a small physical library and resource room. The Librarian will also assist and instruct patrons in efficiently finding and effectively using information and will collaborate with faculty to integrate information literacy across the curriculum. Finally, as part of the Library and Instructional Media team, the Librarian will support the Senior Director of Library and Instructional Media and the Video Producer in creating and maintaining a robust proprietary collection of instructional video clips that demonstrate effective teaching practices.
The Librarian and the Senior Director of Library and Instructional Media are the only two library staff members serving Relay’s primarily virtual library. Therefore, this position is an outstanding opportunity for an early career librarian to gain skills in a wide variety of library-related tasks, such as reference and instruction, outreach, working with online learners, acting as an education subject specialist/liaison, and managing electronic resources.
