Collection Services Supervisor -- J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah 

Post date: July 5,  2023

We are looking for someone to help us ensure that the library's physical collections are successfully shared with researchers and students through daily collection management. The supervisor assists with the management of all activities including pull service and campus delivery, accurately shelving library materials, ensuring the stacks and study areas are neat and orderly, compiling statistics to represent collection activities, and relocating collections. The supervisor performs in-depth research for patrons to assist them in locating library material or locating non-specific information within collections. The supervisor is responsible for managing the department in the manager's absence including delegating work, hiring, training, scheduling, and evaluating student employees. The position requires lifting up to 30 pounds, pushing a loaded book truck, and the ability to drive a University vehicle with a valid driver's license. The 6 years related work experience requirement can be met through a combination of educational equivalency (1 year of college-level education is equivalent to 2 years of experience); full or part time work in a library, cultural heritage institution, or similar public-facing organization; supervisory or student leadership positions; internships or volunteer assignments that include significant levels of responsibility that are transferable to the duties of this role.


This position is required to work on campus full-time. Telecommuting will only be authorized for occasional/exceptional circumstances.


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.
