Dear all,

The Hesburgh Libraries is accepting applications for the position of Unit
Head* of *Continuing* and *Electronic
<https://apply.interfolio.com/83991>*; the application deadline is *Wednesday,
March 31, 2021*.

The Hesburgh Libraries at the University of Notre Dame seek a
collaborative, resourceful, and dynamic professional to serve as the Unit
Head of Continuing and Electronic Resources (CER).  The CER Unit is one of
three units reporting to the Director of the Collection Strategy and
Acquisitions (CSA) Program. The Unit Head provides leadership for the
procurement, assessment, and management of continuing resources in print
and electronic formats, including individual and package journal
subscriptions, databases, streaming services, and data-driven acquisition
models. The incumbent works collaboratively with the Unit Head of Resource
Acquisition & Access (RAA) to provide training and support in managing the
electronic resources lifecycle (trials, acquisitions, license review,
knowledge base management, troubleshooting, authentication, and
cancellations). They also work with the Program’s three Scholarly Resource
Assessment Librarians, who collectively facilitate discussions across the
Libraries regarding library collections. The CER Unit Head exercises
vision, sets goals, and guides the work of four direct reports. The Unit
Head works closely with all CSA Program members to develop a unified
strategy, best practices, and workflows for managing fee-based and open
access scholarly resources. Librarians are non-tenured members of the
University faculty and engage in professional service, contribution to the
profession, and University and community service.

The acquisition of our physical collections and electronic resources is
spread across two units: the RAA Unit has an emphasis on one-time
purchases, such as print books, ebooks (packages & firm orders), digital
primary resource collections, and data sets; the CER Unit has an emphasis
on continuing resources. The CER Unit Head exercises vision, sets goals,
and guides the work of four direct reports that support numerous aspects of
the electronic resources lifecycle, print serials check-in, payment
processes, and collection assessment. The Unit Head upholds the Libraries'
values, which include a commitment to innovation, team-based operations,
project management, and continuous improvement.
