The University of California at Berkeley invites applications for the position
of Associate University Librarian (AUL) and Director of Digital Initiatives &
Collaborative Services. This position is central to Berkeley's goal of
enhanced access to library resources for users on campus and off campus.
Drawing upon expertise from across the Berkeley Library, campus partners, and
UC System, the AUL supports Berkeley's dynamic, research-intensive
environment. As the primary technology planner for the Library, the AUL sets
policy and strategic directions to ensure the Library maintains a reliable,
scalable, and sustainable technology infrastructure; robust computing services
for library users and library staff; vibrant web services, and expanding
digital initiatives. The AUL also provides leadership and direction for the
policies and services related to other collaborations reaching beyond the
Berkeley campus such as the UC Berkeley Library Interlibrary Services and the
Northern Regional Library Facility shared by the five northern UC campuses.
With the tools to shape access to both legacy collections and newly digitized
ones, the AUL will be an architect of new models for networked information.

  
Along with other members of the Library's senior management team, this AUL is
responsible for enhancing the vision of the Library as an exemplar of
research, scholarship, learning, teaching, and collaboration; establishing a
clear direction for the future of the Library as an integrated system;
directing operations of one or more divisions of the Library; serving as a
fair, progressive leader to the Library's staff; leading library-wide
discussions and decision-making; creating and communicating Library policies;
as well as gaining and leveraging resources for maximum impact on the Library.
The Library seeks a person with proven experience as well as fresh ideas.

  
The Environment

The UC Berkeley Library is an internationally renowned research and teaching
facility at one of the nation's premiere public universities. In a highly-
diverse and intellectually-rich environment, Berkeley serves a campus
community of 25,500 undergraduate students, 10,300 graduate students, and
2,000 faculty.

  
The Library comprises 20 campus libraries - including the Doe/Moffitt
Libraries, the Bancroft Library, the C. V. Starr East Asian Library and
subject specialty libraries. With a collection of more than 11 million volumes
and a collections budget of over $15 million, the Library offers extensive
collections in all formats and robust services to connect users with those
collections and build their related research skills. Through creative
arrangements with other research libraries and foreign countries, the Library
continues to explore new roles and approaches for academic research libraries.
The Library has a current operations budget of approximately $39 million with
approximately 380 FTE employees. The Library is a member of the Center for
Research Libraries (CRL), Association of Research Libraries (ARL), Online
Computer Library Center (OCLC), Council on Library and Information Resources
(CLIR), and the Coalition for Networked Information (CNI). Berkeley actively
partners with the California Digital Library (CDL) and manages the system-wide
Northern Regional Library Facility (NRLF) at the nearby Richmond Field
Station.

  
Summary of Responsibilities

  
The AUL has the responsibility for developing library initiatives that enhance
access to, discovery of, and usability of resources within and beyond our
collections. To this end, the AUL works collaboratively with library staff
(from areas such as public services, systems, and collection services),
faculty, students, campus units, the California Digital Library, our sister UC
campuses, and other partners in order to innovate, design, develop, and
support tools, approaches, and processes to effectively meet the needs of
novice users and advanced researchers.

  
Reporting to the University Librarian, the AUL and Director of Digital
Initiatives & Collaborative Services:

  * establishes criteria of excellence and effectiveness for all aspects of our Library's digital library initiatives, web sites and services, virtual services, workstations and information technology infrastructure;
  * mobilizes and supports Library staff to meet those criteria through shared processes and practices;
  * provides campus-wide leadership and serves as primary spokesperson for the Library's digital strategy and services to faculty, students, and other library patrons;
  * contributes to the development of local, regional and national strategies in areas such as digitization, digital curation, digital preservation, data management, e-research, and discovery services;
  * participates in fundraising and grant writing, and manages resources secured through these efforts;
  * supervises and provides strategic direction for several departments including Digital Applications and Publishing, Workstation Support, Interlibrary Services, and the Northern Regional Library Facility (approximately four direct reports and 60 FTE personnel).

The AUL provides leadership in coordinating and defining system requirements
and priorities for Library-wide projects and initiatives, and sets Library-
wide policy and protocols related to web services, technology support, and
infrastructure which help shape the work of subject liaisons, access and
technology specialists, and library support personnel. The AUL also provides
leadership for research services related to data, information systems, and
related aspects of e-research across disciplines.

  
To ensure shared planning and problem solving, the AUL works collaboratively
with library staff, faculty, and other campus partners from a wide range of
departments, disciplines, and specializations. The AUL represents the Berkeley
Library in projects with the California Digital Library and other partner
institutions as we explore new ways to strengthen collaborative services,
shared collections, and co-investments of resources to support research,
teaching, and learning.

  
As a member of the Berkeley Library's senior management team, the AUL shares
decision-making authority for personnel actions, resource management for the
Library's budget, and development of policies for all library operations and
services. In addition to representing the Library with University, regional,
and national bodies, the AUL contributes to the library and information
science profession through publications, formal presentations, and
participation in professional organizations.

  * proven leadership experience successfully managing departments, teams, and projects in a complex, multi-functional library environment
