Description

New York University Libraries is seeking a faculty librarian to support the open scholarship, digital publishing, and repository needs of research and teaching across a wide range of social sciences, humanities, and sciences fields at NYU.

They work in close collaboration with other specialists to promote tools and services in support of Open Access and Open Scholarship, such as the institutional repository, ORCID Identifiers, and Digital Object Identifiers; to identify and document workflow best practices for the curation and management of digital collections and digital publishing projects, including collections such as electronic theses and dissertations; and to instruct researchers in navigating rights and access issues.This person works collaboratively with Liaison and instruction librarians, technologists, metadata architects, preservation specialists, and developers within NYU Libraries to maintain and improve systems for description, storage, discovery, rights management, and access to digital content held within the institutional repository.

They will develop and maintain awareness of scholarly communication initiatives across subject areas, attending professional meetings, workshops and conferences for training and continuing professional development. As a member of the Scholarly Communications and Information Policy department, this position reports to the Director of Scholarly Communications and Information Policy and operates in close coordination with the Scholarly Communications Librarian, Digital Scholarship Services, Data Services, Preservation and Conservation, and Digital Library Technology Services.

Research

Faculty Librarians also explore their own active research agenda, contributing their expertise, experiences, and investigations to build new knowledge in their chosen areas. The Open Scholarship Librarian will be well positioned to make substantive contributions to research in a number of areas, including, but not limited to, explorations of the role that libraries play in cultivating an open research culture and leveraging that culture to promote more inclusive equitable, and ethical research and publication practices; the collaborative establishment of non-commercial online resources and practices; the role of libraries in creating necessary technological systems that enable equitable access to online information; the consideration of biases within the terminology, architecture, and encoding of these systems; and the ethical and privacy considerations that arise in an era of mass data collection. 

NYU Cluster Hiring Initiative
NYU Libraries is participating in the NYU Faculty Cluster Hiring Initiative to recruit, welcome, and support new library faculty working across the Division on timely themes of social importance, such as Inequality and Anti-racism, Population Health and Health Equity, Open Science and the Public Good, and Urban Environments and Politics. NYU Libraries will use the cluster-hire approach to address our goal of building a more diverse faculty community in a concerted way, with the full weight of the University’s recruitment and retention toolkit. It also allows us to mobilize our internal resources, including onboarding, cohort mentoring, and measures to protect time for research and service, and bring them to bear to ensure the success of new hires. For full details about the Libraries cluster hiring initiative, see this link.

This particular position is part of our Building STEM for the Public Good: Cultivating Openness in the Sciences cluster. Bringing together expertise in data discovery, data curation and organization, open-access scholarship, and STEM engagement, this cluster will bring a key set of library and information science perspectives and theoretical underpinnings to heighten the impact of work already occurring across the university in the fields of education, data journalism, information and technology policy, data science, and more. The positions in this cluster build on a rich tradition of libraries centering the public good in technology development, selection, policy, and implementation, not only to facilitate access to a range of technologies, but also to bring a critical lens to their inherent limitations and biases.
