Search for the Associate University Librarian for Library Special Collections and International Studies Programs
The UCLA Library seeks an innovative, strategic, visionary, and collaborative leader for the position of Associate University Librarian for Library Special Collections and International Studies Programs to shape the future of special collections and international studies programs at UCLA. As one of the world’s great public research universities, UCLA integrates education, research, and public service so that each enriches and extends the others. From its beautiful neighborhood campus in a uniquely diverse and vibrant city on the Pacific Rim, teaching and research extend beyond the classroom, office, and lab through active engagement with communities, organizations, projects, and partnerships throughout the region and around the world.
Reporting to the University Librarian, the AUL is a key senior administrator in the UCLA Library. The AUL supervises three major departments: the Department of Library Special Collections (LSC) (an enterprise-wide organization composed of the Library’s special collections resources, services, and operations across the campus) which this position heads, and oversees the Library’s International Studies programs (composed of the Richard C. Rudolph East Asian Library (EAL), and the International Studies Department (ISD) which encompasses Latin America, the Middle East, Africa, Southeast Asia and Pacific Islands).
The AUL has direct supervisory responsibility for and plans, organizes, and oversees all aspects of LSC, EAL, and ISD operations and budgets. The AUL fosters a flexible, collaborative work environment, and a strong team spirit, allowing personnel to move easily between sections and departments and across the organization to establish and support creative initiatives and facilitate new partnerships and interdisciplinary projects. The AUL collaborates with other senior administrators, departments, and units throughout the Library and across the campus. Working closely with the University Librarian, senior management team, the Executive Director of Library Development, and the Library Office of Research Administration (LORA), the AUL develops fundraising strategies, stewards and cultivates donors, and writes proposals to support the goals and activities of LSC, EAL, and ISD.
The AUL serves as one of the primary spokespeople at campus, UC systemwide, state, national, and international levels for issues and policies relating to special collections and international studies programs, and ensures that the UCLA Library actively participates in collaborative programs and services regionally, nationally, and internationally; implements innovative technologies including programs to build and preserve digital special and international studies programs collections; and contributes to the advancement of the UCLA Library.
