[InetBib] Stellenausschreibung Head, Marquand Library of Art & Archaeology, Princeton University Library

Sehr geehrte Damen und Herren,

In Übereinstimmung mit David Magier, Associate University Librarian for
Collection Development an der Princeton University, möchte ich Sie gerne
auf die Stelle des Marquand Librarian aufmerksam machen.

*Head, Marquand Library of Art & Archaeology, Princeton University Library*

Princeton University Library seeks an energetic, innovative librarian to
direct its Marquand Library of Art & Archaeology, whose vast collection of
print, digital, and media materials documenting the world's visual arts,
including rare books, grows by ~20,000 new and antiquarian items annually. (
http://library.princeton.edu/marquand). Marquand is active in digital
initiatives, e.g. the Digital Cicognara Library, as well as
inter-institutional collecting programs. Besides the Head, Marquand has an
Assistant Librarian, Chinese & Japanese Art Specialists, a Western
Bibliographer, an administrator, 4 support staff, and 35 student/casual
employees. Located next to the Princeton University Art Museum and the
Department of Art & Archaeology, Marquand also has study carrels for the
Department’s grad students.

Reporting to the Associate University Librarian for Collection Development,
the Head bears primary responsibility for all aspects of Marquand's
operations, collections and services. Critical functions include strategic
leadership for collection and program development, direct and indirect
supervision of staff. The Head maintains close liaison with the Department
of Art & Archaeology and the Princeton University Art Museum, ensuring
outstanding support for priorities in teaching and research, also
addressing the interdisciplinary interests of faculty and students across
the university. The Head collaborates closely with other Princeton
librarians to establish priorities and cultivate library-wide initiatives,
e.g. in digitization, outreach, and instruction. Liaison with other Library
units (Technical Services, Library IT, Preservation, East Asian Library,
Rare Books and Special Collections, the Center for Digital Humanities,
etc.) is a key component of Marquand’s operation.

In proportion to Marquand's international stature, the Head provides
high-level leadership and initiative, representing Princeton in regional,
national, and international organizations and initiatives; seeking
opportunities to advance inter-institutional collaboration in collection
development, digitization, preservation and access; identifying and
pursuing grant opportunities to further enhance the Library's service to
this field.
