The College of University Libraries and Learning Sciences (CULLS) seeks a position for the role of Library Information Specialist 3. The successful candidate will provide excellent customer, circulation and reference services, along with facility oversight to ensure a safe and productive learning environment.  Incumbents will bring library experience and skills, a proven ability to work effectively in a team environment, and interest in learning new skills.

The successful candidate will join Access Services, the team that helps UNM and community library users access information by providing services across multiple library buildings and online in the areas of: circulation, resource sharing (Interlibrary Loan/Document Delivery), technology lending, course reserves, information and research help, and collection maintenance. Within the UL’s main campus buildings, we provide comfortable and dynamic spaces to support individual and collaborative learning. We also offer programming in library spaces to engage our campus and community with information and ideas.

The position is based in Centennial Science & Engineering Library (CSEL) with an anticipated Monday through Friday schedule, but may provide support for services in other library locations including evening and/or weekend hours. CSEL supports the teaching and research programs of the University with a focus on life sciences, physical sciences, and engineering. The Library is home to the Map and Geographic Information Center (MAGIC). The Library also supports technology-rich spaces and services, including specialized software for quantitative, qualitative, and spatial research as well as game development, and a virtual reality space. In addition, CSEL is home to UNM’s Math Learning Lab (MαLL), a collaborative learning space supporting mathematics education.

The incumbent will perform complex and specialized tasks in a fast-paced Public Services setting within University Libraries. They will monitor daily operations and participate in implementing and communicating operating policies and procedures.  They may coordinate, prioritize and oversee the work of lower level staff and/or students. Regular work assignments may involve service and process improvement. As the College of University Libraries and Learning Sciences is in the process of opening a new high-density collection repository, projects involving the library’s physical collections are another priority. Contributing to creating an inclusive environment for all library users is an ongoing responsibility.
