The National Agricultural Library (NAL) is one of five national libraries in the United States.  It houses one of the world's largest collections devoted to agriculture and its related sciences. The library facilitates the creation of agricultural knowledge through the acquisition, curation, and dissemination of the information needed to solve agricultural challenges today and in the future.

We seek applicants who demonstrate cultural sensitivity, understand diverse communities, and are committed to intentional internal and external inclusivity. Over the past year, NAL launched a library-wide DEIA climate assessment, held focus groups and listening sessions, and is now creating an actionable strategic plan that holds us accountable to our goals. While we have taken steps to fight against racism, bias, and discrimination, we recognize the work requires sustained honesty, introspection, and commitment to better serve both NAL employees and our customers.  We desire candidates who can take a leadership role consistent with the USDA Core Values of Respect and Dignity, Equity and Inclusion, Trust and Integrity, Service and Results, and Science Leadership, and help develop and sustain the inclusive culture that NAL is building
