“Gettysburg College’s Musselman Library invites a librarian with a teaching and outreach orientation to join its Scholarly Communications department. Our library is a dynamic organization where every staff member makes a difference. We serve an increasingly diverse liberal arts community of 2,600 undergraduate students, including 20-25% first-generation college students and over 16% Pell Grant recipients. We recognize that excellence cannot be achieved without diversity, and we seek to recruit and retain a workforce that offers students and colleagues richly varied perspectives and ways of knowing and learning.
The Scholarly Communications Librarian plays a key role in providing and expanding library services related to open access, open education, and library publishing. The successful candidate is an enthusiastic and engaged teacher who can design and deliver outreach and instructional activities and programs, both to promote scholarly communications services and to contribute to an active information literacy program. This position will oversee sustainable growth and management of our established institutional repository, The Cupola, as well as collaborate to develop new open access journals like our undergraduate journals. This librarian will join a growing campus conversation about textbook affordability and work with administrators, faculty, and other stakeholders to improve affordability. They will also provide education and support that enables faculty to adopt, adapt, and create Open Educational Resources for use in their courses….”
