Information Technology Librarian
California State University, San Bernardino’s (CSUSB) John M. Pfau Library invites applications from forward-looking, collaborative, service-focused librarians to provide the leadership and effective communication to maintain, enrich, and advance the library’s information technologies and Web services.
Responsibilities: The Information Technology Librarian (ITL) is a tenure-track faculty position reporting to the dean of the Pfau Library.
The ITL is the Head of the Library Information Technology unit which is charged with deploying and maintaining the library’s computers, related technologies, and Web services, as well as monitoring emerging technologies within and outside of library environments for possible use at the Pfau Library.
The ITL’s ultimate goal is a high level of user satisfaction facilitated by a deep understanding of users’ needs, values, abilities, and limitations.
The ITL supervises an IT Support Supervisor and an Assistant Web Developer and oversees the Innovation Lab, a space with 3D scanning and printing, circuitry kits, virtual reality headgear, and more.
The ITL also plays a crucial role in liaising with the campus Information Technology Services division with regard to services affecting the library, including networks, servers, information security, and more. The position serves on library, campus, and CSU technology committees and communicates information between these entities. At the library level, the ITL chairs the Library Information Technology Council.
The ITL will administer ExLibris’ PRIMO, the platform behind the library’s new OneSearch discovery layer, and may provide some combination of reference service, instruction, collection development, and liaison duties based upon knowledge and experience.
All tenure-track librarians must engage in the requisite research, creative work, and service to meet the tenure standards for faculty at the university. The library provides support for and fosters intellectual endeavors, and values librarians as faculty with their own research interests depending on academic background.
