The University of Florida’s George A. Smathers Libraries seek a candidate for the History Librarian position who will be primarily responsible for the overall development, management, and coordination of the Libraries’ resources in all formats for history.

Responsibilities include analyzing the University’s programs in and related to History, collaborating with librarians and academic faculty to establish collection profiles, selection guidelines, and preservation, location and cataloging priorities; and evaluating existing collection strengths and current collecting intensities. The position collaborates with other employees, providing support in the broader areas of the social sciences, especially overlapping, interdisciplinary areas, manages specialized subject area reference services, library instruction, and online database services, and participates in branch and libraries-wide outreach programming.

The search will remain open until April 21, 2022, and applications will be reviewed as received. For a full description of the position and instructions on how to apply, please refer to the George A.
