The Carl B. Ylvisaker Library is a teaching library where all librarians are engaged in library instruction and information literacy skill development. As the college makes strategic investments in integrative learning, civic engagement, digital scholarship, and readiness for life after college, the Instruction and Research Librarians will join a strong team focused on teaching and learning. Depending on experience and interest, these two positions will assume responsibilities for either coordinating online learning and instructional design efforts in the library instruction program, or for coordinating the library instruction program for the new core undergraduate curriculum. The growth of new online and hybrid graduate programs presents new opportunities for collaboration with the faculty in the college’s three schools. The library is especially interested in applicants who will contribute to the development of a diverse campus community and who have experience working effectively with diversified populations. Successful candidates will aspire to be part of a community that affirms an abundance of identities, experiences, and perspectives.
Concordia College is a private four-year liberal arts college of approximately 1,800 undergraduates located in Moorhead (MN)/Fargo (ND), a growing metropolitan area of approximately 250,000 that is known for quality schools, affordable housing, and the nearby Minnesota lakes country.
