Diversity Resident Librarian - The University Libraries, The University of North Carolina at Greensboro

The University Libraries have established a two-year Post MLS Diversity Residency program to further increase the diversity of our professional staff while fostering the growth and development of a new librarian. The purpose of the Residency is to attract a recent graduate to the challenging and rewarding career of academic librarianship. The University Libraries has a Diversity Committee and also participates in the University?s diversity initiatives: http://library.uncg.edu/divres/

Residents will provide service and gain valuable experience in multiple facets of academic librarianship through this process by spending their first year in three different functional areas and their second year focused in one primary service area. The Resident will serve on library
committees as appropriate including the Diversity Committee and search committees as well as be assigned other activities such as liaison responsibilities. Professional development is a strong component of the Residency program, which includes conference attendance, interaction and
participation in the University Libraries Mentoring Program, and collaboration with UNCG?s Library and Information Studies Department.

The salary is $42,000 per year and is a two-year visiting faculty non-tenure track position available July 15, 2010. Review of applications will begin February 28, 2010 and will remain open until the candidate is selected. Standard benefits include state or optional (including
