Under the direction of the Director of CSN Libraries, and in coordination with the faculty librarians, CSN Libraries is recruiting a forward-thinking, innovative, and collaborative eLearning Librarian. This librarian is primarily responsible for developing and delivering information literacy instruction in the online environment, creating and maintaining electronic learning objects, and assisting in the maintenance of the Libraries’ electronic resources, in concert with the other eLearning and Systems librarians.

CSN Libraries are made up of librarians and staff who serve on and complete work through small, flexible library teams focused on areas such as: Assessment, Alma, Collection Development, Communications/Outreach/Marketing, Content Strategy, eLearning, and Instruction.

As a part of the tenure-track academic faculty, CSN Librarians actively serve the College at the campus level, including participating in the Faculty Senate and serving or leading campus-wide committees and task forces. The successful candidate will be someone who enjoys engaging in service activities at the campus-level, through participation on college-wide committees.

Providing all library services through a lens of equity and inclusion is a strategic priority for CSN Libraries. The library seeks candidates who are equally dedicated to this initiative, and who seek to provide library services to a variety of student populations, contributing to the library’s presence as a welcoming place for the entire CSN community.
