Director, NYU Shanghai Library

New York University is seeking a Library Director for its newest portal
campus, NYU Shanghai. NYU Shanghai is the first Sino-US
higher education joint venture to grant a degree that is accredited in the US
as well as in China. A research university with liberal arts and sciences at
its core, it resides in one of the world's great cities that is also a vibrant
intellectual community. NYU Shanghai will recruit scholars who are committed
to our global vision of transformative teaching and innovative research.

  
New York University has established itself as a Global Network University, a
multi-

site, organically connected network encompassing key global cities and idea
capitals. The network has three degree-granting campuses - New York, Shanghai,
and Abu Dhabi - complemented by 12 additional academic centers across five
continents. Faculty and students circulate within the network in pursuit of
common research interests and cross-cultural, interdisciplinary endeavors,
both local and global.

  
The Library of NYU Shanghai will deliver and coordinate a wide range of
academic services that support the teaching, learning and research of NYU
Shanghai's faculty and students. Drawing on the resources
of the libraries at NYU New York, the NYU Shanghai library provides an
opportunity to create a forward-looking 21st century library program and
facility to serve a culturally diverse and academically talented
population. NYU Shanghai is scheduled to open September
2013 with a class of 200 freshman and 150 visiting students, and is expected
to grow over eight years to a target undergraduate student population of 2400
along with selected graduate programs.

  
In consultation and consistent with the NYU library mission and programs, the
Director of the NYU Shanghai Library will provide senior leadership in 1)

for NYU Shanghai, including program start-up and expansion, staff recruitment

Director of the NYU Shanghai Library will work closely with colleagues in the
NYU Division of Libraries and at NYU Abu Dhabi to develop services that
optimize library staff and resources across the NYU
Libraries. The Director also works closely with the senior
