Public Services Librarian
University of Wisconsin Madison
The University of Wisconsin-Madison Libraries is seeking candidates for its Resident Librarian Program. This program, established in 2013, provides an opportunity for entry-level librarians and archivists from historically underrepresented groups in librarianship to begin their professional careers and develop skills and experience in academic librarianship.
College Library's primary focus and expertise is to support student academic success and create a welcoming environment for all, especially those new to academic research. The residency offers an opportunity to be a subject generalist supporting student research and learning through strategic undergraduate student engagement. The position will provide research support through reference, instruction, and outreach for undergraduates who are learning the foundations of the research process. The Public Services Librarian will be part of ongoing conversations and organization-wide efforts to ensure that the library and its collections are welcoming and reflect a variety of student perspectives, with specific efforts to raise the visibility of voices and experiences of people with marginalized identities in our spaces.
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.
