Wellesley College

Posting Number A499 Job Title Research and Instruction Librarian Employee Group Administrative Job Type Full Time FLSA Exempt Salary Range From Salary Range To Department LTS / Research & Instructional Support Description
Wellesley College seeks a highly motivated and creative Research & Instruction Librarian devoted to public service in a liberal arts college environment.

We seek candidates who take an expansive approach to the work of libraries, to the possibilities afforded by information technologies for achieving the college's goals for student and faculty work, and to the integration of their work across the team, the organization, and the college.

This Librarian will act as liaison to literature, language, cultural studies and some related interdisciplinary departments, offering innovative support for the teaching, learning, and academic research in these disciplines. The Librarian will work collaboratively as a key member of the Research Services team to build a community of students who are information literate and confident lifelong learners.

The Librarian will continually assess disciplinary needs in languages and literature, seeking thoughtful ways to address them through collaborations with faculty and fellow instructors on assignment design, integrated instruction, individual consultations, and support for independent learning. As part of the deeply merged Research and Instruction Support team of librarians and instructional technologists, the Librarian supports faculty and students in all disciplines in the exploration and application of new technologies and methodologies for digital humanities and scholarly inquiry in literary and cultural studies.

Key Responsibilities
- Develop and provide innovative and effective library instruction and in-depth research support for faculty and students in liaison disciplines.
- Create programming, resources, projects, and other forms of support for digital humanities scholarship in one or more areas such as network analysis, text analysis/mining, image analysis, mapping, or other technologies or methodologies.
- Work with collections librarians on general collection development in liaison disciplines. - Advocate for collection development and systems improvements or adoption in support of the humanities, especially in the support of language learning and literary study.
- Keep abreast of scholarly trends, resources, and new technologies in liaison disciplines with a view toward their application in research and instruction.
- Other duties as assigned.
- Master's degree in Library and Information Science or related discipline from an ALA-accredited institution.
- Academic background in a relevant humanities field such as English literature, language or cultural studies, cinema and media studies, or significant experience supporting the study of languages and literature at a postsecondary level.
- Demonstrated experience and comfort providing effective instruction and consultations.
- Enthusiasm for learning and evaluating new technologies and methodologies relevant to digital humanities and literary studies through analysis and visualization of texts.
- Comfort with risk taking and change in a rapidly evolving profession.
- Ability to collaboratively tackle problems and new projects with enthusiasm, tact, and humor.
- Interest in offering a wide variety of campus support in addition to core/traditional responsibilities, as part of a merged Library and Technology organization.
- MLS and 3-5 years relevant experience
- Experience with at least one area of digital humanities methodologies and visualization (network analysis, text analysis/mining, mapping, digital publishing and archives, etc.). Experience with relevant tools and/or programming languages, such as Gephi, Palladio, OpenRefine, packages for text analysis in R or Python, Scalar, or Tableau, is a plus.
- Experience developing modules for online or blended learning settings.
- Experience with assessment projects, particularly learning assessment or long-term (1 year or longer) assessment projects.

They leave as “Wellesley women,” uniquely prepared to make meaningful personal and professional contributions to the “real world”—and to be major influences in it. The world’s preeminent college for women, Wellesley is known for intellectual rigor, its belief in the enduring importance of service (and putting that belief into practice), and its cultivation in students of an inclusive, pragmatic approach to leadership.
