The MIT Libraries seek an enthusiastic and collaborative professional to serve as an Engineering Librarian and to coordinate a team of colleagues supporting the renowned MIT Media Lab.
The Engineering and Media Lab (EML) Librarian serves as the Libraries’ expert on the research, teaching and learning practices related to Mechanical Engineering, the MIT Media Lab, and selected other engineering departments and interdisciplinary centers. As a liaison, the EML Librarian will:
• Provide innovative instruction and design learning experiences that address research practice, information and data management, and key issues of the global, digitally-networked information ecosystem.
• Offer expert research support throughout the entire research cycle from discovery to management of information and data to the development and dissemination of research products.
• Develop a program of outreach, drawing upon the full range of library services, to facilitate the success of varied research endeavors including local and global collaborations, interdisciplinary teams, industry or grand challenges competitions, online learning projects, and original undergraduate and graduate student research.
• Use institutional knowledge to facilitate collaborative learning communities and foster scholarly communities of practice with both service design and technologies.
• Engage in resource selection in relevant disciplines, and contribute to library collection development initiatives that both expand access to research through open access and inside-out collection practices, as well as help to shape the functionality of platforms through which information is made available.


Leveraging knowledge of their constituents’ goals and needs, and using systematic business intelligence practices, the EML Librarian gathers and analyzes information that is vital to the success of MIT Libraries’ strategic initiatives and innovative service design. The successful candidate will bring essential expertise, experience, and leadership skills for advancing the partnerships and collaborations needed in the MIT Libraries’ fulfillment of the Future of Libraries Task Force Report recommendations.
The EML Librarian reports to the Department Head for Liaison, Instruction &amp; Reference Services. They work collaboratively with science and engineering colleagues to provide strong and evolving services, and with humanities, management and social science colleagues to support interdisciplinary research. The EML librarian supports the quality and impact of library services by leading or participating in department and system-wide initiatives, serving on teams and task forces, and through leadership or service coordination roles. Professionals who enthusiastically embrace the empathy, courage, self-reflection, and respect essential in a multi-cultural, diverse and inclusive workplace, and who strive to incorporate those values in public service work, research and program development are encouraged to apply.


QUALIFICATIONS include MLS/MLIS or an advanced degree in engineering or related fields, substantial and relevant experience in engineering research support, teaching, and working with communities of practice in science or engineering, and some combination of:
