CU-Boulder has

information literacy, intellectual freedom, lifelong learning, the disciplinary

growth of information, and the amplification of knowledge.

About Boulder, Colorado:

Boulder and the

surrounding area is known as one of the best places to live because of its

spectacular setting, acres of open space, and vibrant atmosphere.  At 5,430 feet above sea level, acres of vast

open space entwine into Boulder's cityscape nestled into the foothills of the

Rocky Mountains. Home to approximately 90,000 residents, Boulder has a mild,

dry climate with more than 300 days of sunshine per year. Boulder offers

activities for every interest.  Over 80

miles of pedestrian and bike paths, as well as a convenient bus system, provide

transportation around town and to the Denver metropolitan area. Photographers,

music lovers, rock climbers, Olympians, artists, and others are drawn to this

great city because of its scenic beauty, vibrant culture, and fabulous

amenities. Boulder is just three hours from 11 ski resorts, 40 minutes from

Denver, and moments from 43,000 acres of open space and trails. Boulder recently polled as the happiest city in the

United States.','!*!Requirements:Please address each of these qualifications in your application materials:ALA-accredited Master’s degree in Library and Information Science or equivalentDemonstrated ability to cultivate and advocate for an environment of diversity and inclusionExperience in accessioning, arrangement, processing and description of archives, manuscripts, and multi-format collections, including born-digital, audiovisual, and photographic materialsKnowledge and understanding of current and emerging archival theory and practice, national standards, relevant legal and ethical regulations and best practices that govern the arrangement, description and use of archival materials, particularly DACS and MPLPSupervisory experienceDemonstrated experience writing finding aids using tools and standards such as ArchivesSpace, Archivists' Toolkit, and EADSensitivity to matters of confidentiality, copyright, and other policy and legal aspects of managing and providing access to archival materialsDemonstrated ability to cultivate collegiality and to work effectively with colleagues, patrons, and donors        Excellent interpersonal, presentation, facilitation, and communication skillsPotential for research, scholarly work, and professional serviceDesirable Qualifications:Evidence of any of the following will enhance a candidacy:Coursework or degree concentration in archivesMore than 2 years experience in accessioning, arrangement, processing, and description of archives, manuscripts, and multi-format collections, including born-digital, audiovisual, and photographic materialsFamiliarity with emerging technologies for managing archival collections, including digital repositories and digital preservation systems (e.g., DSpace, Archivematica, Arkivum, etc.), and digital exhibit systems (e.g., LUNA, Omeka, ContentDM, Collective Access, etc.)Experience communicating and negotiating with potential donorsExperience collaborating across units/departments in an academic environmentSuccessful track record of securing grant fundingDemonstrated experience or professional development related to strategic planning, change management, supervision, or leadershipRecord of research and publication and national service','','','','Cover Letter, Resume/CV, List of References','Cover Letter, Resume/CV, List of References','Application must include a letter of application specifically addressing qualifications for the position; CV or resume; and names with postal addresses, email, and telephone numbers of three references.
