Openings: Two Law Librarian Positions, CUNY School of Law
With the arrival of a new Dean this semester, CUNY School of Law is entering an exciting new phase in its history of training students to work in the public service. Since the school’s founding in 1983, our focus has been on creating a law school where our students and graduates work towards increasing access to justice and using the law to create a more equitable world.
Towards that end, we have committed resources to expand the library’s proactive services to the School of Law’s community, especially in providing additional services to the law faculty. As a result, we withdrew a previous posting about a law librarian opening at CUNY School of Law.
We are now looking for two enthusiastic candidates to work with the Director of the Library and the current library faculty to implement an innovative team approach utilizing the idea of quality circles. Each librarian will be primarily responsible for a major area (i.e. technology, faculty services, budget, or other areas as deemed necessary) with the Director having overall supervision. Thus, the approach will be one where opportunities exist to think creatively and expand professional skills in an atmosphere where an active service philosophy is encouraged.
In addition, Law Librarians are fully engaged in the governance processes of the School of Law, having full faculty status and helping shape the future of the institution. Working with our colleagues outside of the Library, librarians add to the rich diversity of the law school experience by having their own scholarship interests, in addition to supporting those of the other members of the faculty.
All librarians must have a J.D. and M.L.S. in order to be considered for these tenure track positions. Further detailed information can be found at: http://portal.cuny.edu/cms/id/cuny/documents/jobposting/017918.htm#P-11_0
We invite applications from candidates who are interested in working with us in the Law School’s unique mission of training lawyers who will work for social justice.
