Reference and Instruction Librarians
12 Month - Tenure Track (two positions)


Job #: FAC2013-183

Open until filled. Application Screening Begins:

The Tanimura & Antle Family Memorial Library's mission is to help prepare knowledgeable, resourceful and responsible citizens for California and the global community by facilitating active exploration, discovery and synthesis of information. As a teaching library, its faculty librarians manage and deliver active, outcomes-based instructional programs. CSU Monterey Bay's library has a longstanding commitment to the use of technology-enhanced services and resources. The library's curriculum-focused print/media collections and electronic resources are augmented by a rapid, efficient inter-library loan operation. The design of the library co-locates library services with campus programs that support student learning, including writing, peer-tutoring, advising and undergraduate research. At this stage in the university's growth, seven librarian faculty and seven staff share responsibility for the library's array of services in a highly collaborative environment.

These two positions offer creative opportunities for forward-looking, pragmatic, motivated individuals who seek opportunities and experience across a variety of professional responsibilities while developing areas of focus with the potential to take on leadership roles. These 12-month tenure-track appointments are under the direction of the Library Director. In this collaborative environment, the successful candidates are responsible for meeting library and campus criteria for retention, tenure, and promotion in four areas of scholarship: Teaching and Learning; Discovery, Creation, and Integration; Professional Application; and University Service. Applicants are strongly encouraged to review the criteria at
