Reporting to the Head, Library Systems and Metadata Services, within the division of Budget, Acquisitions &amp; Discovery (BAD), the Special Formats Cataloging Librarian works collaboratively to support timely discovery and access for a range of formats and materials, including audiovisual materials, special collections/rare books, and digital collections. Core duties include original and complex copy cataloging and authority control work in accordance with local and national cataloging and metadata standards.

Professional librarians hold faculty status. Faculty status allows both voice and vote in University faculty meetings, eligibility to serve on faculty committees, to serve as a student advisor, and to participate in the Program for Enhancing Teaching Effectiveness (PETE); and it acknowledges that those individuals play an active role in the intellectual activities of the University. Faculty status does not carry with it eligibility for tenure or sabbatical, nor does it automatically carry with it faculty rank (Professor, Associate, Assistant Professor, or Instructor), since faculty rank is in a specific academic department, nor does it carry eligibility for other benefits normally assigned to full-time teaching faculty.
