The Caltech Library is recruiting an Acquisitions and Electronic Resources Librarian to provide leadership for materials acquisitions and electronic resources management for the Caltech Library.

The Acquisitions and Electronic Resources Librarian is a member of the Research Services department, which is composed of 9 librarians and 2 support staff. The department staff supports five programmatic areas: collection management; outreach, instruction and reference services; repository services; acquisitions; and metadata. An acquisitions, processing and catalog maintenance team of 3 staff manages the Library's largely electronic $3.25 million materials budget and performs metadata and e-resources management work to support discovery and access.

The Librarian works closely with subject librarians, Access and Fulfillment staff, and the Library Business Administrator to support data-driven, innovative strategies to maximize the impact of the library's' collections budget to provide the needed scholarly research materials for the Caltech community.

The Librarian has primary responsibility for vendor relations and coordinates the full materials acquisitions and management lifecycle. The Librarian plays a leadership role in identifying and implementing opportunities to adapt the traditional library environment to evolving technologies, user expectations, and business opportunities. The Librarian has primary responsibility for identifying and implementing new approaches to electronic resource management; managing usage statistics and other assessment data for electronic resources; and providing internal training and information on electronic resources management best practices and tools.

The Acquisitions and Electronic Resources Librarian will be professionally engaged, represent the Caltech Library in relevant professional organizations, and promote the professional development and engagement of department staff.
