Johns Hopkins University seeks applicants for the position of Resource
Services Librarian to develop and deliver a range of traditional and
innovative library services that facilitate the teaching and research
needs of the Biology, Biophysics, Psychology, Biomedical Engineering, and
Cognitive Science departments and the related centers and programs. The
Science and Engineering Library, within the Milton S. Eisenhower Library,
is staffed by a team of four science and engineering resource services
librarians. Under the general direction of the Coordinator for the Science
and Engineering Library, the librarian will select traditional and
electronic resources for the collection, develop innovative services,
provide subject-related consultative and instructional services, and
develop web-based resources for the assigned client groups. In this
liaison-focused library, a high level of interaction between faculty and
students and the librarian is essential. The librarian serves as a member
of the Resource Services Department, which includes providing reference
service via the Brandeis model, participating in departmental activities,
and working with library-wide groups and other library and university
groups to coordinate services, initiate projects, and implement programs.

The Sheridan Libraries encompass the Milton S. Eisenhower Library and its
collections at the John Work Garrett Library, the George Peabody Library,
and the Albert D. Hutzler Undergraduate Reading Room. Its primary
constituency is the students and faculty in the schools of Arts and
Sciences, Engineering, and Professional Studies in Business and Education.
A key partner in the academic enterprise, the library is a leader in the
innovative application of information technology and has implemented
notable diversity and organizational development programs.

The Sheridan Libraries are strongly committed to diversity. A strategic
goal of the Libraries is to 'work toward achieving diversity when
recruiting new and promoting existing staff.' The Libraries prize
initiative, creativity, professionalism, and teamwork. Hopkins librarians
have Senior Staff status.
