Job Title:  Library Info. Specialist 3

Department: College of University Libraries and Learning Sciences (CULLS)

Status: Open Until Filled

Best Consideration Date:  September 28, 2023

Salary posted: Monthly - $3354.00-$4660.93



The College of University Libraries and Learning Sciences (CULLS) is hiring 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 for the campus community.  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.

This position is based in Zimmerman Library with an anticipated regular Monday through Friday schedule, but may provide support for evening and/or weekend hours and provide services in other library locations on campus. Zimmerman supports the teaching and research programs of the University with a focus on the humanities, education, business, and social sciences. Zimmerman is the state’s largest library located at the heart of the state’s flagship university. This 300,000 square foot building is home to over a million volumes, the Center for Southwest Research, the department of Organization, Information, and Learning Sciences, and a variety of student spaces designed for both individual study and group activity.

Incumbents 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 expectation. 


Bachelor's degree; at least 3 years of experience directly related to the duties and responsibilities specified.

Completed degree(s) from an accredited institution that are above the minimum education requirement may be substituted for experience on a year for year basis.


  1. Experience with circulation and information services in a library setting including services delivered in person, and by other mediums, such as phone, email, chat, text.
  2. Experience with library collections maintenance.
  3. Experience working independently with building and facilities responsibilities, including safety and security.
