Associate Dean for Technology, Discovery, and Digital Services
Pennsylvania State University
State College

Welcome to an exciting time at Penn State! With new University leadership
imparting fresh vision and strategic direction, the University Libraries are
launching a new strategic plan focused on three areas: discovery, access and
preservation; teaching and learning; and advancing university research. We
have a unique opportunity to recruit three new Associate Deans who, along with
another current Associate Dean, will help us advance the 21st century research
library for Penn State and the profession. One of these positions is the
Associate Dean for Technology, Discovery and Digital Services.

  
The Pennsylvania State University Libraries seek an outstanding individual to
hold this faculty leadership position.

  
**Responsibilities**
  
This position is expected to provide leadership and support
for Libraries' IT and digital services (Libraries Information Technology,
Media Technology and Support Services, and Publishing and Curation Services)
as well as cross-unit and cross-organizational teams (e.g., Digital
Preservation Strategy Team, ScholarSphere Service Team, etc.). The portfolio
of responsibility will include:

  * Digitization, digital reformatting, and digital library production
  * Digital preservation, curation, and data management
  * Repository services ([ScholarSphere](http://scholarsphere.psu.edu), [Hydra](http://projecthydra.org))
  * User experience, content strategy, and user services
  * Digital scholarship, digital humanities, and e-science services
  * Discovery, access, and accessibility strategies
  * Emerging technology strategies
  * IT infrastructure and platforms management and support
  * Software and web applications development
  * Libraries' website management and services
  * Service desk and workstation management
  * Multimedia technologies
  
We are committed to selecting the person who best fits the needs of the Penn
State University Libraries, and who will be able to advance our
mission. The final portfolio of responsibilities may vary
and will continue to evolve, depending on the abilities and interests of the
selected candidate, the synergies of the entire administrative team, and the
needs of the organization.

  
**Required Qualifications**
  
A Master of Library Science degree from an ALA-accredited institution (or
equivalent); substantial relevant experience at an academic, special, or
research library/related institution; a national reputation for distinguished
scholarship and professional accomplishment; strong record of service in an
appropriate professional or disciplinary association; excellent oral and
written communication and interpersonal skills; and a desire to work in a
collaborative, student-centered environment. We seek a
strategic and empathetic visionary who has experience working with strong
self-sufficient teams and a commitment to shared governance.

  
**Environment**
  
Penn State, a land-grant institution, is an active member of the Committee on
Institutional Cooperation (CIC), a consortium of the Big Ten universities plus
the University of Chicago. The Penn State University
Libraries are a strategic asset to Penn State, advancing intellectual
discovery, information literacy, and lifelong learning, all in support of the
University's strategic goals in teaching, research, service, and
outreach. Based on current Association for Research
Libraries investment rankings, Penn State is among the top ten research
libraries in North America. The University Libraries has
one of the most extensive online and print collections in the world including
many locally digitized collections covering a wide range of subject
areas. There were more than 9 million uses of our print and
digital collections last year. A Penn State student survey completed in 2010
found overall student satisfaction with the Libraries to be at the top of its
category. Our faculty and staff have roles in the entire lifecycle of
scholarship and research, from inception and creation to access and
preservation. We are the largest public-mission library in the northeastern
United States, and, with physical collections at each of Penn State's 23
campuses found in all regions of the Commonwealth, the Libraries are also the
most geographically dispersed. We serve approximately 6,000 faculty and 44,000
students at University Park, and approximately 97,000 students university
wide.

  
The University Park campus is set in State College, a university town located
in the heart of central Pennsylvania. State College offers a vibrant community
with outstanding recreational facilities, a low crime rate, and excellent
public schools. The campus is within a half-day drive to Washington D.C.,
Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City, and Pittsburgh. The University Park
Airport is served by three major carriers with flights to Washington,
Philadelphia, and Detroit and Chicago. For more information, please visit
www.libraries.psu.edu and www.cbicc.org.

  
**Compensation and Rank**
  
This is a tenure-track faculty position. Based upon the University and
Libraries' standards in librarianship, research, service and outreach, it is
anticipated that the successful candidate will be appointed at the rank of
Librarian with tenure, however rank and salary are dependent upon
qualifications and experience. Fringe benefits include liberal vacation,
excellent insurance and health care coverage, state or TIAA/CREF retirement
options, and educational privileges.

  
Applications and all supporting materials must be submitted online via the
link below. Interested candidates should upload a letter of
application, resume or C.V., and the names and contact information of three
professional references (including email
addresses). Please reference **Box
ADTECH-PSUL** in your letter of application. Review of

filled. Questions may be addressed to Lindsey Harter,
Faculty Search Coordinator, at [[log in to unmask]](mailto:[log in to unmask]).
