Position Description:

The McLaughlin Library at the University of Guelph invites applications for a dynamic, creative, collaborative archivist or librarian to fill the position of head, Archival &amp; Special Collections (A&amp;SC), and digital archivist. This senior leadership position reports to the Associate University Librarian, Research, and is a member of the library’s management team. The head, A&amp;SC, and digital archivist will provide strategic leadership and oversight for the A&amp;SC team, while also establishing strategies and workflows to support the acquisition, appraisal, processing, curation, preservation, discovery of, and access to born-digital and digitized materials.

A&amp;SC supports research and teaching on campus, offering a passageway to the cultural, social, physical, and political history of the Guelph region and the University's founding colleges. The collection, measuring approximately 8000 linear meters, includes eight main collecting areas: agricultural history and rural heritage, culinary, Lucy Mau d Montgomery, the LW Conolly Theatre Archives, landscape architecture, Scottish studies, rare books, and regional and early campus history. The department recently re-opened a newly renovated reading room and exhibit gallery on the second floor of McLaughlin Library, as well as newly expanded storage space and the Scottish Studies Foundation Digitization room on the lower level.

The head, A&amp;SC, and digital archivist promotes the vision of the library as being central to the University community as a valued facilitator, partner, and catalyst on campus.

In support of this framework, the Library Management Team (LMT) is committed to supporting the incumbent to develop the necessary skills and aptitudes to succeed in the role by providing training, mentorship, and professional development opportunities.
