Cambridge, MA: Humanities and Digital Scholarship Librarian, MIT
Massachusetts Institute of Technology
Cambridge, MA

The MIT Libraries seek a knowledgeable and enterprising librarian to join a
growing team of liaisons developing new services and collaborations in digital
scholarship. The Humanities and Digital Scholarship
Librarian will support and collaborate with students and faculty doing
research in history and other selected humanities disciplines. The successful
candidate will engage with a dynamic community in which traditional research
methods co-exist and integrate with highly innovative digital scholarship and
pedagogies. Teaching experience, digital
project skills, and expertise in humanities research methods and resources are
key qualifications.

  
Advancing the capacity of the MIT Libraries to collaborate on digital
scholarship projects is central to the position. To support
the MIT community's current needs, the librarian in this position will
collaborate with departments in the MIT Libraries ranging from Data and
Specialized Services to Institute Archives and Special Collections, and work
on project teams with colleagues in new positions focused on digital
scholarship. To advance support for digital scholarship,
the HDS Librarian will help design and implement a skills-building educational
program in research methods, new research tools, data management,
collaborative scholarship platforms, and digital presentation or
publishing. Additionally, the liaison will engage
professionally with library and scholarly organizations to further his/her
foundational knowledge of trends and issues related to humanities scholarship
in order to contribute to strategic change.

  
Reporting to the Department Head for Liaison, Instruction and Reference
Services, the Humanities and Digital Scholarship Librarian will serve as a
liaison for history and selected other humanities subjects, delivering a
program of services and products to support faculty and student success in
research, teaching and learning. The liaison will provide
instruction in research skills and strategies, collaborate and consult on
digital projects, develop customized resources to support student learning,
and ensure that his/her constituencies can make effective use of all library
services and resources. The librarian
will support selected other humanities disciplines based on experience and
expertise. In collaboration with colleagues, the librarian will select
resources, provide reference services, and participate on cross-unit projects
to enhance the quality and impact of library services.

  
Applications must include cover letter and resume. Priority
will be given to applications received by April 25, 2016; position open until
filled. MIT is strongly and actively committed to diversity within its
community and particularly encourages applications from qualified women and
minority candidates.
