Librarian for Archival Management and Preservation
New York University Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi

NYU Abu Dhabi invites applications for a Librarian for Archival Management and
Preservation to work in an innovative, dynamic, and forward-looking setting.
The incumbent will help manage acquisitions, care and access to NYUAD's
nascent archival collections and launch collecting processes for historical
records of the University. The position involves significant collaborative
work with library colleagues at NYUAD and NYU in New York, and across its
global sites, as well as with faculty and students in those
locations. The position contributes to providing
information and research assistance to the gifted faculty, post-doctoral
researchers, and student body of NYU Abu Dhabi, often called the "world's
honors college."

  
As part of a highly collaborative team, this position plays a key role in the
educational mission of NYU Abu Dhabi by establishing strong relationships with
faculty and students, and connecting them to the resources and tools that meet
their research, teaching and learning needs. As the initial incumbent of the
position working in a new library at a young institution, the position will
help shape the management, preservation, and access procedures for the
University's growing collections of rare and unique documents, media of all
types, and digital objects. A commitment to outreach and
service to researchers will be essential to this work alongside development of
forward-looking procedures for archival management.
Depending on the incumbent's academic background, liaison responsibilities
with academic departments may be assigned and service at the library's
reference desk will be routine.

  
Reporting to the Library Director, this position will arrange for the intake
of new collections to the library, which may include field work such as
surveying, packing and transporting materials; provide appropriate
organization, housing, and access for collections of paper documents and
multi-media, including digital objects, analog photographs, and ephemera;
arrange archival records in accordance with accepted archival standards;
publish EAD encoded finding aids on the web in accordance with NYU best
practices; supervise support staff assistants; work with the University
Archivist, Digital Archivist, and other specialists in New York to launch
NYUAD's archive of historical materials related to the establishment and
history of NYUAD; and oversee the Special Collections facility in the new
NYUAD library on Saadiyat Island.

  
The work location is the Abu Dhabi campus on Saadiyat Island. Living and
working in the United Arab Emirates presents an exciting and excellent
professional environment, coupled with an abundance of cultural, educational,
recreational and travel opportunities.

  
Requirements:

  * ALA-accredited MLS or equivalent with a concentration in archival studies
  * Relevant experience in a special collections unit or archive of a research library
  * High degree of facility with technologies and systems germane to the 21st century library

  * Knowledge of rights administration and management issues for archival collections
  * Strong analytical and problem solving skills
  * Excellent English language communication skills
  * Ability to establish positive long-distance working relationships with NYU Libraries in New York and to work collegially within a highly collaborative local unit
  * Demonstrated history of flexibility, creativity, and strong customer service commitment
Preferred Attributes:
