Publishing Librarian I/II/III

The Wayne State University Library System (WSULS) seeks an innovative, service-oriented Publishing Librarian (I/II/III) to advance the University's mission to create and advance knowledge, prepare a diverse student body to thrive, and positively impact local and global communities. The university mission embodies 150 years of educational excellence and access: its students, staff, and faculty are driven to transcend historical and divisive inequities in our society. Our mission of access and proud culture of diversity demands a  Librarian who embraces an environment of inclusion that extends beyond simple tolerance by leveraging the power of peoples' individual identities and diverse perspectives to produce scholarly content in multiple forms.

The successful candidate joins an accomplished team of library professionals in a long-standing library publishing program, which is a founding member of the Library Publishing Coalition. Within WSULS' Discovery Services Unit (DSU), the digital publishing team works to support four active journals, and has focused on and supports the adoption and growth of the University's institutional repository and digital collections. Alongside other WSULS units, the publishing team is working on open educational resources, digital pedagogy outreach and training materials, digital humanities projects, and digital collections platforms, as well as open-access backlist eBooks and journal archives from the university press. As we expand library publishing, WSULS seeks to further its leadership in digital-publishing workflows, infrastructures, and pedagogy and welcomes a librarian whose commitment to uncommon thinking in these areas will push forward our diversity of thought, embodied practice, and publication outreach. For more information on our current work, see http://publishing.library.wayne.edu.

Early opportunities will include contributing to the implementation phases of the Vega publishing system, the establishment of the Publishing House, and collaboration with the Michigan Digital Publishing group--a coalition of researchers and practitioners at state universities in the Michigan Research Corridor.
