Description: University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries is now seeking candidates for its Diversity Librarian Residency Program established in 2013. The residency provides an opportunity for entry-level librarians from diverse backgrounds to begin their professional careers and develop skills and experience in academic librarianship.

This program is designed to meet both the professional goals and interests of the Resident and the service and operational priorities of the Libraries, and to encourage the involvement of underrepresented populations in academic librarianship. This is a three-year residency designed to encourage and promote professional growth and development of recent graduates. It provides a broad-based awareness of principles and practices in academic librarianship and an opportunity to develop an area of specialization.

The first year will focus on providing a generalist academic librarian foundation with experiences and meetings in a variety of places on campus, with a home base in College Library, the library with primary service to undergraduates. The Resident will develop firm grounding in reference, instruction, and collection development while learning about the UW-Madison campus and its large library system. During the first year, the supervisor will work with the Resident on developing a personal professional development plan in an area of interest, leading toward a placement in a library or department that meets that interest for years two and three. For example, the placement in years two and three could be in a department such as special collections and archives, or a science library, such as Steenbock Library.

The GLS will also support professional development and service activities in the library, on campus, and in the wider academic library community, including conference attendance and opportunities to develop a presentation or publication based on the Resident’s UW-Madison activities and possibilities for additional training in the areas of management and supervision. The Libraries at the University of Wisconsin-Madison are dedicated to the practices of social justice, diversity, equality, and respect among our staff, students, collections, and services. We strive to overcome historical and divisive biases in our society and embrace diverse points of view as assets to the fabric of our community. All positions will be called on to contribute to building this environment, and we encourage candidates to apply who share these values.

Required • Master’s degree in library/information science (ALA accredited) • Strong communication and presentation skills • Demonstrated interest in academic librarianship • Ability to work collaboratively and effectively in a team environment • Willingness to participate in library and university committees • Knowledge of reference, instruction, and collection development • Self-starter who is eager to contribute to the profession

Salary: $50,000 with an excellent benefits package A criminal background check will be conducted prior to hiring.

About UW Madison UW-Madison Libraries have a proud record of accomplishment and service. The Libraries manage the 11th largest research collection in North America with exceptional access to print and digital materials from our libraries at UW-Madison and around the world. The many libraries on campus have a long-standing commitment to innovation, developing and offering new services needed to support 21st-century teaching, learning and research. New study and learning spaces have been created, and traditional spaces have been modernized.

Housing will be provided free of charge at a communal agency bunkhouse, which can accommodate up to seven people in Honolulu and up to thirteen people on Kauai.

BACKGROUND:

The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to conserve, protect, and enhance fish, wildlife, plants, and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. The National Wildlife Refuge System, managed by the Service, is the world’s premier system of public lands and waters set aside to conserve America’s fish, wildlife, and plants.

The Records Management Facilitators will make a difference for some of the world’s most remarkable and unique natural resources as our office continues to accomplish great things in the Pacific.  You will gain awareness of wildlife refuge management, island and marine ecosystems, and many endangered and unique plant and animal species. Just recently, one of our monuments, Papahanaumokuakea, was expanded by Presidential order into the largest marine protected area in the world. This internship is an amazing opportunity to see history in the making as the Service and its partners launch its management plans for the monument.

Both the Honolulu and Kauai offices are team oriented and promote a strong work/life balance. As scheduling allows, there are extracurricular opportunities available, including field trips to remote worksites, assisting in biological surveys and participation in other office functions and events.
