Requisition ID req9750
Working Title Library Info Specialist 3
Position Grade 11
Position Summary The College of University Libraries and Learning Sciences (CULLS) seeks two full time Library Info Specialist 3s, to provide excellent customer, circulation and reference services at various library public service sites, along with facility oversight to ensure a safe and productive learning environment.  Incumbents will bring library experience and skills, a proven ability to work effectively in a team environment, and interest in learning new skills.

The positions are based in Access Services, the team that helps UNM and community library users access information by providing services across four library buildings and online in the areas of: circulation, resource sharing (Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery), technology lending, course reserves, information and research help, and collection maintenance. Within the UL’s four main campus buildings, we provide comfortable and dynamic spaces to support individual and collaborative learning. We also offer programming within library spaces to engage our campus and community with information and ideas.

Incumbents will perform complex and specialized tasks and/or services requiring advanced skills in fast-paced Public Services settings within University Libraries. They will monitor daily operations and participate in the development of operating policies and procedures. They will also participate in service planning and evaluation, including establishment of service standards. They may coordinate, prioritize and oversee the work of lower level staff and/or students. Regular work assignments may involve service and process improvement and student engagement. Contributing to creating an inclusive environment for all library users is an ongoing responsibility.  As the University Libraries is in the process of planning for a new high-density collection repository in the coming year, projects involving the library’s physical collections are another high priority.
