If you want to start your career in a dynamic liberal arts college library with growing programs in information literacy and digital scholarship, Susquehanna University may be the place for you. We are seeking an early career librarian to participate in a 3-year post-master’s diversity residence program. You will benefit from strong mentorship and professional development opportunities, and have the ability to make a real difference in the lives of students across campus.

The Research and Instruction Librarian/Diversity Resident will learn how to develop the vision, strategies and goals for the Library’s teaching and learning initiatives, including coordinating the planning, promotion and assessment of the Library’s Information Literacy Program. The librarian will have the capacity to learn digital scholarship tools and pedagogies, and will serve as liaison to the Sigmund Weis School of Business and other departments as assigned. Librarians at Susquehanna University are members of the faculty with rank, but without tenure, in accordance with the Susquehanna Faculty Handbook.

The purpose of the Diversity Resident Program is to increase the number of qualified academic librarians from historically underrepresented backgrounds, and we are new members of the ACRL Diversity Alliance program. As a living, learning and working community, Susquehanna University affirms its commitment to being an engaged, culturally inclusive campus. As we seek to embody the rich diversity of the human community, we commit ourselves to the full participation of persons who represent the breadth of human difference. We strongly encourage applications from candidates who have a demonstrated commitment to fostering and promoting the values of diversity and inclusion.
