Clemson University Libraries seeks a candidate for its Library Faculty Fellows Program. This three-year visiting faculty position provides an opportunity for recent graduates from underrepresented groups to gain professional experience as an academic librarian in a supportive and collegial environment. This program is designed to meet both the professional goals and interests of the Fellow as well as the service and operational priorities of the Library, and to encourage the involvement of diverse populations in academic librarianship. The successful candidate will primarily work with two teams within the Libraries: Library Technology and Government Documents, to acquire core competencies and skills in open government data, collection management, and metadata and digital media projects.
This position will be supervised by the Head of Library Technology. Clemson Libraries is an active participant in the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries (ASERL) Collaborative Federal Depository Program (CFDP) as a Center of Excellence through which the library actively curates material from the U. S. National Park Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the U.S. Forest Service. Clemson also directly partners with the National Park Service to support the Open Parks Network, a comprehensive digital repository of over 350,000 cultural heritage items from the archives of more than 20 national park sites, in addition to 1.5 million pages of government documents housed in Clemson Libraries.
The position requires a three year commitment to begin ideally no later than August 2017. The salary range is $53,000 – $55,000. Compensation packets will also include insurance benefits and professional development funds.
