Dean of Libraries, Alfred University (Alfred, NY)

The Alfred University Libraries seek an innovative leader to join a highly engaged team in the midst of a self-initiated reorganization. We are looking for someone with strong skills in advocacy, communication, and collaboration to lead us in achieving a shared vision. 

Alfred University houses the New York State College of Ceramics, a Statutory College of the State of New York, creating a unique public-private partnership. One result of this distinctive arrangement is that Alfred’s students, faculty, and staff are served by two libraries: The Samuel R. Scholes Library, which supports the School of Engineering and the School of Arts and Design, and Herrick Memorial Library, which supports the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the College of Business, and AUNY (External Programs). 

The Dean of Libraries is the chief administrative and budgetary officer of the University Libraries (Scholes and Herrick) and plays a key role in working with faculty, other deans, the Provost, and the President to advance the mission of the Libraries in conjunction with the mission of Alfred University.

Alfred University is a comprehensive university of 2,000 students, located in Western New York. Additional information is available at https://alfred.edu.

An ALA-accredited MLS/MLIS or equivalent degree is required, as well as a minimum of seven years of professional experience in an academic library, with a record of increasing administrative and supervisory responsibility.
