Job opportunities

Welcome from the Dean

The foundation of UA Libraries is our forward-looking perspective: We are driven to innovate as we expand our impact on student learning, faculty research, and community engagement.

We transcend the role of service providers by being catalysts in cultivating critical thinking skills in students and supporting faculty research from conception to dissemination while prioritizing open access and inclusion in all areas.

As the curriculum shifts to active learning, we have rebooted our buildings as hubs of student learning that facilitate creativity across fields in the analog and digital realms. As research workflows leverage new technologies, we are at the forefront of partnering with faculty and students.

Join us to help shape an exciting future for academic libraries.
