Liaison librarians apply their knowledge of academic disciplines, their experience with effective pedagogy, their understanding of research methodologies, and their expertise in library information science to facilitate teaching, learning, and research. They actively engage and collaborate with faculty, students, and staff throughout the knowledge lifecycle, from the discovery of information to its use and sharing to the development of new knowledge and finally to the dissemination of new modes of scholarship.
Experienced librarians as well as those who are new to the field are encouraged to apply. The positions include the opportunity for on-the-job training and mentorship in science librarianship.
Successful candidates will join a team of librarians who work to advance the teaching, learning, and research initiatives of the College of Food, Agriculture, and Natural Sciences, the College of Biological Sciences, and the College of Science and Engineering. They will serve as a key member of the Sciences, Agriculture, and Engineering (SAgE) department, reporting to the SAgE Director, and will work closely with colleagues in the Research Services Area and across the University Libraries system.
