(16 July 2015) The NYU Library in Shanghai invites applications for a Reference and Research Services Librarian. The position plays a key role in the educational mission of NYU Shanghai by establishing strong relationships with faculty and students, and connecting them to the services, content and tools that meet their research, teaching and learning needs.
The Reference and Research Services librarian serves as the primary liaison to a group of academic departments in the humanities or social sciences, with responsibilities for delivering a program of instruction, consultation, and research support services; developing responsive outreach and other information services; building collections in all formats that support research and curricular needs; and taking a leadership role on projects and initiatives as appropriate. Collaborative work with colleagues at NYU New York, NYU Abu Dhabi, and across NYU’s global network is an important job expectation. Librarians at NYU participate in library and system-wide committees, and professional activities outside of the university.
