The Library of the University of California, Davis, seeks an energetic, innovative, collaborative, and user-focused leader of the full spectrum of scholarly resources supporting research, education, healthcare, and global service for UC Davis.
One of the library’s primary functions is to identify, acquire, manage, assess, and deliver scholarly information resources that support research, education, healthcare, and global service for UC Davis. Scholarly resources is defined broadly and in contexts of emerging trends in scholarly communication, interdisciplinary academic communities, changing information formats and access models, shared and distributed collections, and new conceptions of research library collections and their management. The definition embraces all information resources the library manages for the university — library, archival, and special collections; shared and distributed physical and digital collections; licensed and curated digital resources; and institutional information, data, and other research and teaching assets. The library’s scholarly resources budget has an outsized effect due to the combined purchasing power of the ten University of California campus libraries and the support of the California Digital Library.
The AUL for Scholarly Resources is the leader most directly responsible for the complete spectrum of activities supporting provision of these scholarly resources to researchers, faculty, and students. The incumbent leads innovative programs in scholarly content development and management in support of the university’s mission, including through direct supervision of four department heads responsible for strategic, evidence-based scholarly resource development and evaluation, acquisition and management, delivery and access, and data and digital scholarship. In particular, the AUL for Scholarly Resources advocates for and advances progressive and innovative conceptions of library scholarly resources, data (including linked data), and digital institutional assets, as well as a reframing of library information management and infrastructure, including metadata creation and data management.
