New York University Libraries seeks a liaison librarian supporting the School of Social Work and the Departments of Psychology and Applied Psychology. The ideal candidate has an abiding dedication to developing services for the highly diverse user communities of these programs, which draw learners and researchers from across cultural and demographic spectra, who range in focus from applied to research-intensive work. Library liaisons at NYU contribute to the educational mission by establishing strong relationships with faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates, and connecting them to the services, content, and tools that meet their research, teaching, and learning needs.
This position serves as the primary library liaison to the above areas with special emphasis on delivering a program of extensive and integrated instructional, consultation, and research support services; developing responsive and creative services for communities who are engaged in work within New York City as well as on the global stage; and building and curating collections in all formats. Candidates should exhibit a strong public service orientation, a high degree of facility with technologies and systems germane to the 21st-century library, and have experience helping students and faculty who are increasingly using quantitative and qualitative data, survey methodologies, evidence synthesis methods (e.g., systematic reviews), computing-intensive applications, and geospatial visualization in their work. Liaison librarians actively learn and apply new skills and knowledge in emerging areas of digital and data-intensive scholarship; research data management practices; and the evolution of systems of scholarly publishing and communications.
The Librarian for Social Work and Psychology is a tenure-track position based in the Humanities and Social Sciences Center in the Collections and Research Services unit of the NYU Libraries, reporting to the Head of Social Sciences. The incumbent is deeply engaged and contributes skills and expertise to the highly collaborative work of the department and other units within the NYU Libraries, including the Coles Science Center and the Health Sciences Library.
