Head, Library of the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World

Institution: New York University
Website: http://library.nyu.edu/about/jobs.html#ISAW

New York University seeks a qualified individual to lead the Library of the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World.

The Institute for the Study of the Ancient World [ISAW] is a unique center for advanced scholarly research and graduate education, offering the Ph.D. degree through NYU's Graduate School of Arts and Science. It has a wider geographic span than other programs that focus on the ancient world, incorporating not only Europe and the entire Mediterranean basin, but also the Near East, and Central, South, and East Asia. In its research and its teaching of doctoral students, ISAW emphasizes an interdisciplinary approach, one that transcends modern boundaries of nation. It supports scholarship that crosses customary disciplinary boundaries - art history, literature, archaeology, history, geography, geology, economics, and sociology, among others - to create a new intellectual framework for understanding the ancient world, and to train a new generation of scholars steeped in that integrated approach.

The ISAW Library supports the research and curricular needs of ISAW's faculty, resident and visiting scholars, and graduate students. The ISAW Library and its staff have been built to suit the needs of scholars in the 21st century, embracing both traditional and digital collections and methods, and taking advantage of new techniques for access, delivery and collection building. The Head Librarian works closely with the Institute Director, faculty, and Associate Director for Digital Programs to deliver and enhance information resources and library services that support the interdisciplinary work of ISAW. Those interdisciplinary programs also require that the Librarian work collaboratively with other libraries at NYU and in the New York area, as well as with digital publishers, aggregators, and catalogers worldwide, to insure that the ISAW community, both locally and globally, has access to the broadest possible range of scholarly content. Such collaboration is also essential in the context of collections development to ensure that the ISAW Library complements and extend, rather than duplicates, the extraordinary range of resources New York's cultural institutions make available to researchers.

The Head of the ISAW Library, reporting jointly to the Director of Collections and Research Services in NYU's Division of Libraries and to the Director of ISAW, is responsible for all aspects of the Library's operations, including oversight of access and research services, development of the Library's print and digital collections, liaison with other NYU Libraries departments (including technical services and the NYU Digital Library team), and liaison with ISAW's user community. The staff of the Library includes an Assistant Head and three catalogers. The incumbent will be responsible for the Library's close collaborative relationship with other NYU Libraries, including the Institute of Fine Arts Library on East 78th Street and the Elmer Holmes Bobst Library on Washington Square. The incumbent will also maintain close working relationships with other libraries in the New York area, such as the Library of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the New York Public Library and the libraries of Columbia University.
