University of Virginia Logo

The University of Virginia Library invites applications from early career librarians for our three-year Resident Librarians program. The program is part of the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) Diversity Alliance.

The University of Virginia Libraries has an annual budget of about $38 million, with more than 5 million books in open and closed stacks, over half a million ebooks, more than 200,000 electronic journal subscriptions, and 20 million artifacts in the Harrison Small Special Collections Libraries. We remain a pioneer in digital humanities, and are home to the Scholars’ Lab, which debuted a decade ago and continues a source of innovation and rich discovery. Neatline, Blacklight, Praxis, Spatial Humanities and other programs, tools, and concepts influential in the digital humanities were born here. We have a long history of collaboration with other institutions on projects that include Fedora (the repository platform), Academic Preservation Trust, the Virtual Library of Virginia, ARL, and SPARC.

Deadlines: The application period will open August 30, 2017 and close on December 15, 2017 with a July 1, 2018 start date.
