Initially reporting to the Collections Coordinator for the Humanities, this
librarian will lead the MSU Libraries in support of new models of scholarship
in the humanities, incorporating new technology-driven opportunities such as
text mining, the study of media (art, film, music), linguistic corpora
analysis, creation of shared digitized libraries, and new kinds of writing.

  
Initial goals for this position include assessing campus trends and needs in
"DH", identifying priorities for the attention of MSU Libraries, designing and
proposing library collection and service models, and implementing those plans.
Reporting will depend on the vision enunciated and
implemented. In the long run, this librarian will lead
library efforts to assist faculty and students seeking suitable software, and
cooperate with other DH-related programs at MSU.

  
Details of this assignment will emerge from practice, but could include
liaison with one or more academic departments, engagement with appropriate
programs across campus, development of technology-rich work spaces (labs),
work with clients, instruction and/or preparation of research guides. Positive
outcomes include advising MSU digital resource users, sharing information
among cross-campus initiatives, and exposing students to new technical skills
that support careers built on liberal learning. The
librarian will develop an understanding of the data needs of those working in
digital humanities, and work with data librarians to meet data management,
curation and visualization needs of students and faculty.

  
The successful candidate must be broadly focused and adventurous enough to
expand or shift their range of responsibilities to meet evolving campus needs,
as well as participate approximately quarter-time in a secondary assignment
based on the needs of the library and candidate interests.
Some evening and weekend hours may be required.

  
Librarians are appointed as regular faculty in the continuing appointment
system and are engaged in professional development and scholarly activities
related to their position in addition to serving on library and university
committees as elected or assigned.

  
Michigan State University Libraries serve more than 4,900 faculty, 36,000
undergraduates and 11,000 graduate and professional students on a park-like
campus of over 5,000 acres. The Main Library and 5 branch libraries have
combined holdings of over 5 million volumes. East Lansing is a community of
approximately 50,000 located adjacent to Lansing, the state capital.

  
Minimum Qualifications:

Master's degree in information or library science from a program accredited by
the American Library Association. Excellent oral and written communication
skills; outstanding interpersonal skills including the ability to be flexible
in a dynamic and changing environment; exceptional commitment to customer
service; ability to work enthusiastically and effectively with diverse
faculty, students and staff; ability to work both collaboratively and
independently; ability to prioritize and balance various unit needs; attention
to detail; preparation and commitment to conducting independent scholarship
consistent with a library faculty appointment; capacity and commitment to
engage independently in continuing professional development.

  
Desired Qualifications:

Course work or experience in Humanities disciplines, awareness of trends in
digital humanities scholarship and collections, familiarity with online
resources, awareness of related initiatives at MSU, ability to understand the
needs of faculty/students who use digital resources, and willingness to remain
current with changing technology and its applications.

  
Closing Date:

5pm on Tuesday July 30th, 2013
