The successful candidate will provide collection arrangement and description, instruction and outreach, and reference for collections documenting the textile industry in the United States. With the closing of the American Textile History Museum (ATHM) in 2017, Cornell University Library acquired the bulk of the ATHM's Osborne Library, a unique resource on the history of textile production in the United States.

 

The Kheel Center's holdings include rich manuscript and media collections pertaining to labor unions, business history, management theory and practice, and labor relations. As part of the Martin P.

They have a strong understanding of standard and traditional archival practices but also embrace changes and opportunities that new technologies bring to the archival field. Most importantly, they understand researchers and the research process and keep their needs in the forefront of their mind when making collection decisions.

 

The Osborne Curator will maintain and promote the HLM Library core values of collaboration, excellence, flexibility, innovation, integrity, and service.

 

Required Qualifications:

  • Graduate degree in archival administration, library/information science, or the equivalent.

Senior Library: Creative Services

Pikes Peak Library District (Colorado Springs, CO) is growing, and a fantastic opportunity for an experienced librarian is available!

 

Imagine working at the foot of Pikes Peak in a fantastic library district with phenomenal colleagues. Consider helping to shape the district, thinking about the big picture as a part of the Creative Services team.

 

Creative Services? Yes, we deal in all things makerspace and studio, as well as the services and programs that go hand in hand with them. Starting to see the image in your mind?

 

So, what does that mean we're looking for? We want a mountain climber (not literally, though did we mention we have mountains in our backyard?) ready to scale the heights of possibility, a visionary who can see the path beyond the challenges, an innovator who knows that change brings opportunities for the seizing, a collaborative teammate, a friend of technology, a creative at heart with a give-it-a-shot mentality, a program axe-person (when needed - not all programs work out). If these phrases describe you, or you think they could with a little training, please take a look at our exciting Senior Librarian position in Creative Services, as well as all other job openings, at ppld.org/jobs.
