Vacancy
Associate Dean for Collection Services
Loyola University Chicago Libraries

Loyola University Chicago Libraries (Loyola) seeks nominations and applications to identify user-focused, innovative, and forward-thinking candidates for the position of Associate Dean for Collection Services. This position will provide strategic direction and leadership within the University Libraries, work collaboratively across campus, and engage with the local community and national and international partners to develop and manage the libraries’ collections of scholarly information resources in support of Loyola’s teaching, learning, research, and service missions. Loyola encourages applications from underrepresented groups and from those with diverse backgrounds and life experiences.  

Environment 

Founded in 1870, Loyola is one of the nation's largest Jesuit, Catholic universities. Loyola is a private, not-for-profit institution consisting of eleven schools and colleges with four locations in Chicagoland and a campus in Rome, Italy, providing educational services to approximately 16,000 students in undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs. The University enjoys robust enrollments, an outstanding reputation for the quality of its teaching, and an increasing level of research activity. Recognizing Loyola's excellence in education, U.S. News and World Report has consistently ranked Loyola among the "top national universities" in its annual publications.

Like the University itself, Loyola's libraries and archives are in a growth mode with new facilities and initiatives, such as the eCommons, Loyola's institutional repository. With the opening of the $32 million Information Commons on the Lakeshore Campus in 2008, Loyola has one of the finest and most advanced academic library facilities in the Midwest. In addition to the Information Commons, the University Libraries includes Cudahy Library and the Library Storage Facility (LSF) at the main campus in Rogers Park, the Lewis Library at the Water Tower Campus in downtown Chicago, and a library at the John Felice Rome Center in Italy. The University Libraries has an annual materials budget exceeding $6 million. Collections include nearly two million volumes, 430 databases, 60,000 journals, and a variety of physical and streaming media resources. The Libraries sponsors frequent cultural programs for the Loyola community and its neighbors. For additional information, please visit http://libraries.luc.edu.

Responsibilities 

Reporting to the Dean of Libraries, the incumbent will provide leadership for and strategic direction to library departments, committees, and groups engaged in collection development and assessment, content acquisition and licensing, metadata creation and management, and materials processing and preservation. The associate dean will supervise department heads who oversee acquisitions and resource management functions and will work closely with library subject specialists to envision and build robust and responsive collections that contribute to student success and faculty productivity. Additional leadership opportunities will be available, depending on interest, aptitude, experience, and organizational needs.

As a member of the libraries administrative team, the associate dean will work to effect a user-focused agenda in support of teaching, learning, and research; ensure organizational efficiency and effectiveness; share responsibility for policy formulation, resource allocation, and organizational development; contribute to shaping strategic initiatives; and play a key role in establishing priorities, assessing outcomes, and accomplishing the vision for the Libraries’ future, in alignment with the University’s strategic plan. In concert with Loyola’s Jesuit values, the associate dean will consistently promote teamwork, respect, diversity, and inclusiveness.
