Miami University Libraries seeks an innovative, forward-thinking, tech-savvy, and service-minded colleague for the role of Electronic Resources Librarian/Assistant Librarian in the Access &amp; Borrow Department (A&amp;B).

Stays abreast of new technology, national developments, and best practices in order to provide leadership for acquisitions, cataloging, and electronic resources management activities.


Assists in developing and maintaining an effective, collaborative, positive departmental environment; consults on selecting, training, supervising, mentoring, and evaluating library staff and communicating effectively within and across departments.


Manages activities relating to electronic resources, including setting and evaluating operational goals and staff performance, to make best use of resources, staff, technology, and services while recognizing synergy with other departments.


Maintains and enhance professional skills through regular and meaningful professional development activities; pursue an active career path contributing to the field of academic librarianship.
