Electronic Resources and Serials Librarian, SUNY Potsdam, Potsdam, NY

The College Libraries at SUNY Potsdam are reorganizing our technical services functions, and hiring an Electronic Resources and Serials Librarian to support the core functions of discovery, access, and management of information resources.

SUNY Potsdam has defied expectations since 1816, focusing on teaching, learning, and creative innovation through the nation’s first school of Music Education, a proud tradition of teacher education, and a remarkable school of Arts and Sciences. We are simultaneously one of SUNY’s most-watched creative campuses AND second-best in SUNY’s comprehensive colleges for students enrolled in STEM fields – and we’re chasing down first place. The College Libraries have adopted a mission focused on forging dynamic partnerships, empowering our vibrant and diverse academic community to do thoughtful research, explore new ideas, and collaborate effectively. Because we are aware that we are a historically white and historically regional college that has an increasingly diverse population, we are working to understand our differences as we integrate students from beautiful rural upstate New York with students from the vibrant urban environments of downstate New York, preparing all of our community members to live global lives.

As a part of this community, the Electronic Resources and Serials librarian will provide expertise in managing the libraries’ electronic and print subscriptions, and the technologies necessary to maintain and access those resources. As a holistic member of the library staff, the librarian’s responsibilities may include face to face or online research assistance, information literacy instruction, and/or collection development, building on the strengths and interests of the successful candidate. Library faculty are also expected and encouraged to engage with the academic and student life of the campus through committee, teaching, or other service opportunities, and current library faculty have built a strong reputation as valued members of our community through these kinds of service engagements.
