Research & Instruction Librarian

Description: 

Wellesley College seeks two highly motivated and creative social sciences Research & Instruction Librarians devoted to public service in a liberal arts college environment.

We seek candidates who take an expansive approach to the work of libraries, to the possibilities afforded by information technologies for achieving the college's goals for student and faculty work, and to the integration of their work across the team, the organization, and the college.The Librarians will work collaboratively as key members of the Research Services team to build a community of students who are information literate and confident lifelong learners. These Librarians will act as liaisons to social sciences and some related interdisciplinary departments, offering innovative support for the teaching, learning, and academic research in social sciences disciplines. In this capacity, one position will be responsible for social and behavioral sciences disciplines, while the other position will be responsible for historical, social, and ethical studies disciplines.

The Librarians will continually assess social science disciplinary needs, seeking thoughtful ways to address them through collaborations with faculty and fellow instructors on assignment design, integrated instruction, individual consultations, and support for independent learning. As part of the deeply merged Research and Instruction Support team of librarians and instructional technologists, the Librarians support faculty and students in all disciplines in the exploration and application of new technologies and methodologies for digital scholarship and scholarly inquiry.
