The Library of the University of California, Davis, seeks an energetic, innovative, collaborative, and user-focused leader of integrated information services that advance research, education, healthcare, and global services for UC Davis.
Information services is defined broadly and embraces education, student academic success, information literacy, and skill in information analysis and management; scholarly communication; and activities that help users examine research problems and identify, interpret, and manage relevant information resources. Important contexts include changing theories and practice of education, increased accountability for student academic success and career preparation, and the changing natures of incoming student preparation, needs, and expectations. Other contexts include institutional collaborations to support students, diversifying information channels and media, dramatic growth in (and pressures to secure) funded research, interdisciplinary academic communities, and emerging trends in scholarly communication.
The AUL for Research and Learning is the leader most directly responsible for these information services to enhance research within and across disciplines and promote student learning and academic success in and beyond the classroom. Strategic focuses include advancing students’ academic success and accomplishment and library support of research and scholarship as carried out by faculty, researchers, and graduate students. The AUL for Research and Learning directly supervises four department heads and one program lead responsible in toto for library-oriented undergraduate and professional student learning and academic success; research-support services for faculty, researchers, and graduate students; scholarly communication; the medical library; and special collections. The successful candidate will lead user-focused information services in support of the university’s mission and its evolving academic and research programs, and have a vision for ongoing development of library personnel as educators and research partners.
