Associate Dean, Knowledge Access and Resource Management Services (KARMS)
New York University
New York City

This position leads, shapes, and oversees the work of 56 staff engaged in
acquiring and making accessible the research resources in all formats of the
NYU Division of Libraries. The Associate Dean is a member
of the Libraries' senior management team, which shares responsibility for
planning, budget allocation, and the development and leadership of major
strategic initiatives. In collaboration with senior
management colleagues (including the Assoc./Assist. Deans for Collections and
Research Services, Public Services, Libraries IT Services, and Digital Library
Technology Services), the Associate Dean has primary leadership responsibility
for intellectual access to materials in a changing mix of user-oriented online
environments.

  
The Assoc. Dean oversees the creation, acquisition, integration and lifecycle
management of metadata and the supporting processes that enable knowledge
access. The Associate Dean oversees the operations of the Libraries'
integrated library system (ILS), including its use by non-NYU libraries that
participate in consortia and related services, and serves as liaison to those
libraries. The scope of KARMS units comprises acquisitions,
including licensing; serials and electronic resource management; cataloging
and metadata production, integration and maintenance; and archival collections
accessioning and processing. Services are performed for the
central, institute, and global campus libraries, with selected services
provided to consortium member libraries. The Associate Dean
is also responsible for designing and overseeing a wide range of special
projects, e.g., with affiliate libraries, digital library collections,
specialized resources, and for NYU's branch campuses in Abu Dhabi and
Shanghai.

  
The Libraries' strategic plan emphasizes the need for continual organizational
learning and innovation to meet the challenge of integrating library resources
and services with new, ever-changing, powerful networked teaching, learning
and research environments. Critical objectives include
powerful and effective resource discovery and user experience, and integration
and innovation in acquiring and delivering access to all forms of research
resources. The KARMS Associate Dean will have the continuing opportunity to
manage significant new service development, to employ new technologies and
approaches to resource management and discovery, and to redesign
organizational structures and staff roles in this environment.

  
The Division of Libraries expends over $17 million on collections (65% on
electronic resources) and adds, in addition to electronic resources, ca.
90,000 physical volumes and 3,000 linear feet of physical archival materials
annually. KARMS staff comprises 16 librarians (who are
faculty), 7 administrative staff (which includes supervisors, archivists and
technologists) and 33 support staff, as well as 15 FTE of student casuals and
adjunct assistants. The Libraries deploys the Ex Libris
Aleph ILS, using PRIMO as its primary end-user access system, ArchivesSpace
for archival collections management, and DSpace for its institutional and
preservation repositories.

  
New York University Libraries: Library facilities at New
York University serve the school's 40,000 students and faculty and contain
more than 5 million volumes. New York University Libraries
is a member of the Association of Research Libraries, the HathiTrust, the
Research Libraries Group Partnership of OCLC, and the Digital Library
Federation, as well as regional resource sharing consortia.
The Libraries also serves as the administrative headquarters of the Research
Library Association of South Manhattan, a consortium that includes New School
and Cooper Union. The NY School of Interior Design, New-
York Historical Society and the Brooklyn Historical Society also participate
in use of the ILS. For the NYU Libraries Mission and
Strategic Plan go to http://library.nyu.edu/strategicplan/

  
Qualifications: Evidence of vision and leadership in the
fields of knowledge access and resource management; substantial successful
experience in acquisitions, cataloging, processing, and/or metadata production
processes in an academic/research library, including evidence of successful
and creative management of staff and operations; operational knowledge of
discovery and access methods and systems; substantial knowledge of trends,
issues and methods of intellectual access to library resources coupled with a
strong service orientation and knowledge of user needs for teaching, learning
and research; excellent communications and interpersonal skills; excellent
administrative, management, planning, and organizational skills; experience in
coordination or management of integrated library system functions; working
knowledge of metadata standards; evidence of creative problem-solving and
innovative, results-oriented approaches to processes and organizational
development; evidence of successful leadership in a complex organization,
including demonstrated potential for leading transformational
change. MLS from an ALA-accredited program and a second
masters degree required to be eligible for tenure.

  
Salary/Benefits: Faculty status, attractive benefits
package including five weeks annual vacation. Salary
commensurate with experience and background.

  
To Apply: To ensure consideration, send resume and letter
of application, including the name, address, and telephone number of three
references to: Enrique Yanez, Assistant Dean for Human Resources, New York
University Libraries, 70 Washington Square South, New York, NY 10012 or via
