Associate Librarian Vacancy


The College Libraries are reorganizing our technical services functions, and hiring a tenure-track Technical Services and Metadata Coordinator to help futureproof our services.  SUNY Potsdam has defied expectations since 1816, focusing on teaching, learning, and creative innovation. We are simultaneously one of SUNY’s most-watched creative campuses AND second-best in SUNY’s comprehensive colleges for students enrolled in STEM fields.

The College Libraries are focused on empowering our vibrant and diverse academic community to explore new ideas and collaborate effectively. Because we are a historically white and regional college with an increasingly diverse population, we are working to prepare students from rural New York and the urban centers of downstate New York to live global lives. As a part of this community, the Coordinator will provide leadership and vision for the Libraries’ access to information resources in all formats.

As a holistic member of the library staff working in a leadership role, the Coordinator’s responsibilities will include cross-team work in collection development or research services, building on the strengths and interests of the successful candidate. Library faculty are also expected and encouraged to engage with the academic and student life of the campus through committee, teaching, or other service opportunities.
