The Library at Saint Mary’s College of California, located in Moraga, CA, is hiring an Education Librarian! Whether you have a background in education or counseling or are just eager to learn, we encourage you to apply. This is a great opportunity for someone passionate about the intersections of information literacy, social justice, and K-12 education, leadership, and counseling. Early-career and historically underrepresented candidates are strongly encouraged to apply.
Saint Mary’s is located in the beautiful East Bay hills of the San Francisco Bay Area, and is a 20-minute drive (or 40-minute BART and bus ride) from Oakland, and 45-minute drive (or 1-hour BART and bus ride) from SF. Saint Mary’s is a private, Catholic, Lasallian college, rooted in the liberal arts tradition, that has been designated a Hispanic-Serving Institution.
You’ll be involved with all aspects of academic librarianship: instruction, reference, collection development, outreach, and scholarly communication. You’ll teach one-shots and be embedded in graduate classes in teacher education, educational leadership, and counseling, as well as work with undergraduate classes in leadership and select composition classes. You’ll also staff a couple reference shifts each week (including a weekly 5-7 p.m. shift and a Saturday or two each semester), select books and other materials to support your disciplines, and contribute to our efforts to promote open-access publishing and open educational resources. It’s a position with a lot of autonomy, but also a lot of peer support.
