Academic/Administrative Job Openings
Web Services Librarian
Reporting to the Director of Library Technology Services, the Web Services Librarian provides leadership, management, and coordination for the University of Oregon Libraries web presence in support of Libraries and UO strategic objectives. This includes management of the full range of information resources and access across web and mobile environments, along with a focus on enhancing discoverability of library resources. The Librarian conducts user research and assessment initiatives for the Libraries’ online experience. The Web Services Librarian will lead regular meetings of the library’s web advisory group throughout the academic year. In addition to monitoring and promoting new features and services related to the Libraries’ web presence, the Librarian will work with the Application Development and Integration (ADI) team to improve user interfaces with input from the library’s web advisory group, Digital Scholarship Services (DSS) professionals, Collections Development librarians and staff, Resource Sharing librarians, and faculty colleagues, staff, and library constituents. This position may also be assigned to direct the work of temporary or part-time employees, student assistants, and interns, when the work is related to special projects or tasks falling primarily in the Web Services functional area.
Academic librarian positions require a graduate degree in library and/or information science that is accredited by the American Library Association. Occasionally, depending on the assignment, other subject master's degrees are accepted or required. The UO Library School was suspended in 1978 and has not offered credit coursework since then.
Occasionally, regional recruitments are conducted. Those positions are advertised in The (Eugene) Register-Guard, the (Portland) Oregonian, and either the Seattle Times or the San Francisco Chronicle.
