Position Summary

The Marydean Martin Library at Nevada State College (NSC) invites applications for the position of User Experience Librarian. Reporting to the Library Director, the successful candidate will join a dynamic team with an established culture of assessment and continuous improvement. The User Experience Librarian will coordinate usability and assessment studies of library services including spaces, discovery services, and learning objects. They will use information gathered from quantitative and qualitative assessment projects to demonstrably improve the learning experience for the College’s student population.

The User Experience Librarian will have primary responsibility for the design and usability of the library website (WordPress), the library presence in the learning management system (Canvas by Instructure), and the library discovery system (Ex Libris Primo).
