Westminster College, a leading liberal arts college located in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania, seeks an energetic and learner-centered librarian to facilitate our campus’s instructional design and instructional technology initiatives. The successful candidate will provide support for the College’s Learning Management System (Desire2Learn) and will lead faculty and ITS colleagues in an ongoing exploration of the intersection of technology with teaching and learning. This is a ten-month, tenure-track faculty position. Recent graduates and technophiles who want to work with students and faculty are strongly encouraged to apply.

The Instructional Design and Technology Librarian will join a library staff that values creativity and collaboration. They will encourage the thoughtful integration of the LMS and other technologies in face-to-face classrooms, and support faculty who are developing online and/or hybrid course offerings. They will investigate emerging technologies and evaluate their uses, potential, and fit with the College’s educational mission, serving as a consultant to campus learning space renovations and new construction projects. They will provide end-user support and training for commonly-used office software programs to members of the wider campus community. The successful candidate will also contribute to the library’s information literacy instruction and outreach program, collaborating directly with faculty and students. The librarian will also have the opportunity to assist with other library and technology initiatives as needed.

Inquisitiveness, flexibility, enthusiasm, and a desire to work collaboratively with different user populations in higher education is critical. Strong candidates will have experience using an LMS and instructional technologies, as well as proficiency with a range of commonly used software. An MLS from an ALA-accredited institution or a relevant academic discipline with demonstrated understanding of academic libraries is required.

Westminster College is a nationally recognized liberal arts college, known for its collaborative environment, outstanding experiential learning programs, and focus on student success. Related to the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Westminster was founded in 1852 as the first college in the country to offer the same degrees to all people, regardless of gender, race, or religion. Westminster has been ranked among the nation’s top schools for “Top Colleges Doing the Most for the American Dream” (NY Times), “best value for the money” (College Factual), employment success (Educate to Career Index), graduation rate performance (U.S. News), social mobility (Washington Monthly), women in STEM disciplines (Forbes), service-learning (President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll), and other categories. Around 1,200 undergraduate and graduate students benefit from close personal attention from dedicated faculty while choosing from 41 majors, 10 pre-professional programs and 80 organizations. Westminster’s historic campus is located in New Wilmington, PA, a beautiful rural setting near Pittsburgh and Cleveland.

Application review will begin on March 7, 2020. Please send cover letter, curriculum vitae or resume, and three professional references via e-mail to Jamie Kohler, McGill Library Director, at askmcgill@westminster.edu. EOE
