CUNY Law Seeks Emerging Technologies Librarian

As posted to AALL listservs:

CUNY School of Law Library is seeking an energetic candidate for a new, full-time Emerging Technologies Librarian. The Emerging Technologies Librarian will be an enthusiastic user of technology who enjoys exploring how information is evolving in a digital environment and ways it can be applied to the library services setting. We are looking for a creative individual who has the ability to work within a collaborative team environment, but is also self-directed and takes initiative in leading new projects. S/he will be committed to playing an important role in the development of the library's technology-based services that will further the library's mission of serving its community and promoting the Law School mission in public interest. Through the creation and implementation of new technologies and services, the Emerging Technologies Librarian will also need to be comfortable conversing on technological topics with a diverse group of users at all skill levels, including faculty, students and staff. The Law School will be moving this summer to a new facility in Long Island City - one stop from midtown Manhattan.

The successful candidate will be joining a library that is committed to providing the highest level of research support to students and faculty. She/he will also be responsible for providing reference services to the library community, teaching in the first year Legal Research Program in a collaborative environment, and assisting the Faculty Research Services Program. The full time position will be filled at the entry or mid-level range depending on the experience of qualified candidates.

With full faculty status, the Law Librarians are active participants and are completely integrated into the governance processes of the Law School. By working with our colleagues outside of the Library, librarians add to the rich diversity of the law school experience by having their own scholarship interests, in addition to supporting those of the other members of the faculty.

All librarians must have a J.D. and M.L.S. in order to be considered for a tenure track faculty appointment. Salary Range: Assistant Professor ($43,306 - $98,840); Associate Professor ($56,163 - $120,876). Further detailed information can be found at:
