    New Mexico is expansive in many ways: we are the fifth largest state geographically but have a population of just over 2 million people; we have many thriving cultures, including 23 sovereign Native American nations; and our geography is a meeting of four major land regions. Along with oil and gas and agriculture, we have a strong creative economy that drives tourism, a large film industry, and a growing aerospace industry.  The state is endlessly fascinating, with history, art, and beautiful vistas all alive and present in daily life.

    The new Deputy State Librarian will play a major role in setting future priorities in collaboration with NMSL staff and our stakeholders. Some overarching priorities going forward may include closing digital equity gaps, culturally appropriate approaches to literacy, updating rural services for better effectiveness and consistency, support for formal and informal education, and equitable approaches to economic development.

    • Growth mindset: The successful candidate should model as thirst for knowledge, question assumptions, reassess long standing processes, and include diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and ideas. An ability to learn, evolve, and creatively problem solve is more important than being an expert in such a dynamic environment.   
    • Expansive view of librarianship: The state library serves a diverse collection of libraries that each approach services to their unique communities in unique ways. We partner very often with other divisions in our department, and other agencies, on a variety of projects to support the social wellbeing needs of New Mexicans.  If you see librarianship as only about books or only about information, you may struggle in this position.    
    • Patience: We are innovative and always anxious to meet the evolving needs of our stakeholders, but we operate in a state government environment.  A successful candidate takes action and finds meaningful work in the things that are in their control, and accepts that some things are out of their control.
