POSITION:Research & Instruction Librarian ? Senior Assistant Librarian
TYPE:12-Month, Tenure-Track
The Research & Instruction Librarian position offers creative opportunities for a forward-looking, pragmatic, motivated librarian who will provide user-centered research and instruction services for CSU Monterey Bay students and faculty, and be responsible for collection development in subject areas to be determined. The incumbent will be especially focused on instruction for first year and second year students.
The Tanimura & Antle Family Memorial Library provides information resources, user-centered services, and an inviting, collaborative environment to foster intellectual curiosity, sustain scholarship and creativity, and inspire lifelong learning for the diverse community we serve.

Currently, seven full-time librarian faculty, three half-time librarian faculty, and eight staff share responsibility for the library's array of services in a highly collaborative environment.
