Research, Outreach, and Instruction Librarian, Non-Tenure Track
J. Paul Leonard Library
San Francisco State University’s J. Paul Leonard Library is a busy, teaching-oriented institution supporting a community of 25,000 students as well as faculty and staff. The library seeks applicants for a Research, Outreach, and Instruction Librarian. This position will work collaboratively with other liaison librarians to proactively develop partnerships with faculty to develop and deliver services that support the university’s teaching, learning, and research initiatives. Note that while liaisons are currently assigned to specific departments and programs, we are planning to move to a team-based structure in which liaison teams support colleges. We also plan to have a Student Success and Engagement team focused on first year experience and lower-division general information literacy instruction, research assistance services, and student outreach and engagement initiatives. We are thus looking for applicants whose interests, expertise, and experiences are aligned with one or more of these teams.
