Interlibrary Loan Lending Supervisor -- University of Utah

Post date: July 26, 2022

We are looking for someone to help us ensure that the library's collections are successfully shared with researchers and students around the world. The Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Lending Supervisor oversees all of our daily lending activities, building relationships and providing excellent customer service to other state, national, and international libraries who rely on us to make information more accessible to their patrons. The position assists the ILL Manager, performs all daily functions in their absence, and supports the Borrowing Supervisor when needed. Responsibilities include processing lending requests through the retrieval of materials, accurate scanning of books, journals, and microfilm, retrieving electronic documents from databases, and preparing the shipping and receiving of incoming and outgoing packages.


This position is also responsible for supervising, hiring, training, scheduling, and evaluating the ILL department’s lending coordinator and student employees. If you are interested in a career in libraries, operations management, or general management/administration, this job will give you a solid foundation in your field. 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.
