Literatures & Digital Humanities Librarian
University of California, Berkeley
Berkeley

The University of California, Berkeley seeks a collaborative and service-
oriented librarian to support world-class research and teaching through the
development of the Library's research collections and engagement with faculty
and students associated with scholarship and practices in English and American
Literature, comparative literature, and digital humanities.

  
Responsibilities

Reporting to the Head of the Arts & Humanities Division, the Literatures &
Digital Humanities Librarian supports research, teaching, and scholarship by
shaping the Library's rich research collection; developing research tools to
facilitate user access to resources in various formats; providing specialized
orientations, instructional sessions, and research consultations for faculty,
graduate students, and undergraduate students; and contributing to reference
services for the humanities and social sciences. The incumbent cultivates and
sustains connections with faculty, students and staff of key academic
departments, programs, and centers, including serving as a resource for
emerging technologies, scholarly communication, and research methods to meet
the evolving needs of these fields.

  
Collection development/management includes responsibility for selection,
acquisition, access, assessment, and disposition of wide-ranging resources in
all formats that are appropriate to the research and teaching needs of the UC
Berkeley campus. Through skilled management of collections budgets, including
endowments and collaborative purchases, the incumbent guides the development
of the core collections and special collections in the disciplines of English
and American literature, and comparative literature published in English and
supporting North America, the United Kingdom, and other English-speaking
nations.

  
In the area of digital humanities, the incumbent will be a leader, change
agent, and expert resource for subject librarians and special collections
curators involved in facilitating faculty and student digital humanities
projects. In addition, the selected candidate will create and coordinate
educational programing for library staff focused on digital arts and
humanities issues and projects. Working with a network of subject specialists
and other relevant staff, s/he will conduct regular environmental scans of the
campus environment to identify emerging trends and scholarly digital projects;
and participate in campus digital humanities groups and departments that
support emerging digital humanities scholarship.

  
In order to effectively enhance access and support interdisciplinary research,
the incumbent partners with other campus colleagues specializing in social
sciences, humanities, area studies, international documents, and digitization,
as well as with the California Digital Library and the Center for Research
Libraries. UC Berkeley librarians and academic staff are expected to
participate in library-wide planning and governance, and work effectively in a
shared decision-making environment.

  
Advancement is partially based upon professional contributions beyond the
primary assignment; the successful candidate will show evidence or promise of
such contributions to the Library, campus, UC System, and profession.
