“The University of North Texas Libraries, serving the largest and most comprehensive university in the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area, are a pioneer in fostering the transformation of libraries and of scholarly communication. With four physical locations on campus and an even larger digital footprint, with digital-library collections including over 10 million items, the Libraries were one of the first to archive web sites, one of the founding members of the Library Publishing Coalition, and the first non-federal library to participate in the Federal Information Preservation Network (FIPNet). Since 2010 the Libraries host an annual open-access symposium with speakers from around the world, and the Libraries are the driving force behind the Cross Timbers Library Collaborative, which brings together library staff from across the region for professional development and collaboration. The Libraries receive about $1 million per year in funding from grants and foundations.
Reporting to and working in close collaboration with the Assistant Dean for Scholarly Communication, the Scholarly Communication Librarian will contribute to the Libraries’ efforts to educate users about the transformation of scholarly communication and foster a more sustainable publishing ecosystem….”
