Collection Development & Acquisitions Assistant -- J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah

Post date: August 11,  2023

We are seeking service-oriented and meticulous team members to fulfill essential roles in assisting the Collection Management unit at the Marriott Library in identifying, acquiring, and licensing scholarly information resources and making them discoverable and accessible to support the research and teaching needs of the University of Utah community. The team members will collaborate with foreign, domestic, and specialized vendors, library users, and other library employees in procuring scholarly resources to support curricula and research needs. Additionally, team members will troubleshoot problems, manage records, and operate online systems and database platforms to ensure accurate holdings, efficient materials processing, and accurate records.

We’re hiring for two positions that perform similar functions but with different emphases. By default, when you apply through this link, you will be considered for the position with the Collection Development emphasis and the position with the Acquisitions emphasis. If you only wish to be considered for one of the positions, please indicate your preference in the supplemental questions.

This position is currently designed as a hybrid of on-campus and remote work. Specific telecommuting arrangements will be based on the needs of the position and authorized at the discretion of the supervisor.

We seek qualified applicants who also bring perspectives and experiences that will enrich and strengthen our organization. We especially invite applications from candidates who may not have followed a traditional educational or professional path. All candidates should be prepared to discuss how they see themselves contributing to the University’s equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts. The library serves an increasingly diverse constituency of patrons, and our employees, services, collections, and policies should honor and reflect this diversity. We are therefore interested in identifying and interviewing candidates who have experience with underserved or marginalized communities and communities of color and who are committed to advancing our mission to provide equitable access to information resources.

Pay Rate Range $19.25 to $20.75
