The University of Michigan Library is transforming the way libraries organize, preserve, and share access to knowledge in service of the mission of one of the world’s leading research universities. We seek a forward-thinking, collaborative, mission-driven, and innovative Associate University Librarians (AUL) to join the library’s leadership team, reporting to the Dean of Libraries.

Associate University Librarian for Library Information Technology (LIT)

The AUL for LIT will lead the development of information technology in support of the university’s current and emerging research needs, and the advancement of scholarly literacy and instructional technologies. To direct the development, management, and maintenance of a flexible and reliable technology environment, the AUL for LIT will lead 60 talented staff members in six units: Core Services, Digital Library Production Services, Learning Technology Incubation Group, Library Systems, User Experience, and Web Systems. The AUL for LIT must possess the technical and conceptual knowledge to represent the library in broad conversations about IT, and advance the campus-wide development of emerging instructional technologies as well as systems to enable emerging research needs, including the management and preservation of data.

We are searching for a professional with a deep understanding of the myriad and changing roles of the library, who views information technology as integral to our mission, and who can excel within the context of a world-class research university. Because we are committed to diversity, we ask our leaders to develop and nurture the individual and collective skills to recognize, celebrate, and deploy difference as a path to engagement, innovation, and the generation of new ideas.
