New York University Libraries seeks an innovative Librarian for Collections, Resource Sharing, and Consortial Partnerships who will combine knowledge of collection development with a strategic understanding of the role of resource sharing and consortial partnerships in providing access to local and collaborative collections for scholarship and learning. Recognizing that library users expect to be able to access rich and diverse collections, whether these collections are local, consortial, regional, national, or global, and regardless of whether they are owned, shared, licensed, or open-access, NYU Libraries aims to ensure that users have access to the collections they need. This position will provide leadership and vision for a “collections as service” model of collection development and resource sharing by coordinating existing (EAST, MaRLI, PALCI, etc.) and developing new, partnerships and by overseeing resource sharing staff, policies and practices. The Librarian for Collections, Resource Sharing, and Consortial Partnerships will coordinate the assessment of “collections as service” model with an eye to understanding collection use holistically and helping to shape local collection and resource sharing policy and practice.
Primarily reporting to Head of Access, Delivery, & Resource Sharing Services and secondarily reporting to Head of Collection Development, this position collaborates closely with departments across the Libraries.
