John T. Maltsberger III ’55 Associate University Librarian for Rare Books and Special Collections

Princeton University seeks nominations and applications for a strategic, visionary, and collaborative leader for the role of The John T. Maltsberger III ’55 Associate University Librarian (AUL) for Rare Books and Special Collections (RBSC). This newly endowed role offers an exciting opportunity for a forward-looking leader in the field of special collections. Princeton seeks an individual who can provide organizational leadership while also collaboratively designing new and innovative services that demonstrate the significance of Princeton University Library’s (PUL) outstanding collections to the scholarly community.

With a staff of approximately 40 and a budget of $6.3 million (FY 2018-2019) from a combination of dedicated acquisitions and other endowments, the new AUL for RBSC will have the opportunity to create world-class services and collections in support of research and teaching. Reporting to the Robert H. Taylor 1930 University Librarian, Anne Jarvis, and working in close partnership with other members of the Library Leadership Team (LLT), the AUL will implement PUL’s recently developed strategic priorities.

Princeton University Library is one of the world’s foremost research libraries. Supporting researchers from around the world, it is a vibrant hub of activity, exploration, and discovery. The Library’s holdings include more than 10 million printed volumes, 5 million manuscripts, 2 million non-print items and extensive collections of digital text, data, images, audio, video and online resources in over 200 languages. The Library’s Rare Books and Special Collections is extraordinary in the depth and breadth of its holdings, which range from such singular items as an Egyptian Book of the Dead (circa 1250 BCD) to the papers of Nobel Laureate Toni Morrison.

The Associate University Librarian for RBSC will be a highly respected, actively engaged, and internationally recognized expert in the field of special collections. An advanced degree in a relevant field is required. The ideal candidate will combine subject matter expertise with strong organizational leadership and people management skills.
