Scholarly Communications Librarian Position

Description

The University of California San Diego Library seeks applications from highly motivated, innovative, collaborative, and service-oriented professionals to join the Library as our Scholarly Communications Librarian (Assistant, Associate, or Full Librarian).

The Academic Senate of the University of California adopted an Open Access Policy on July 24, 2013, ensuring that future research articles authored by faculty at all 10 campuses of UC be made available to the public at no charge. Subsequently, a Publication Management System was implemented to prompt faculty when articles are published and to facilitate deposit of manuscripts into eScholarship, the University repository. On October 23, 2015, the UC Presidential Open Access Policy expanded open access rights and responsibilities to all other authors who write scholarly articles while employed at UC, including non-senate researchers, lecturers, post-doctoral scholars, administrative staff, librarians, and graduate students. These users are not presently incorporated into the Publication Management System software, but that is a future goal.

Implementation of these policies has created an expanded awareness of open access principles across campus and has led the Library to allocate additional resources in response to the increased and ongoing need for support and training for campus community members and Library staff.

This commitment is evidenced in the creation of the new position of Scholarly Communications Librarian. Reporting to the AUL for Collection Services, the ideal candidate is one who will lead the Library in defining strategies and services that support faculty and researchers in exercising their publishing options and that also help ensure sustainable and open access to information resources needed by our university. This work will include defining practices that maximize the impact of faculty research and writing, while protecting their intellectual property. Working in collaboration with liaison librarians, this individual will lead efforts to educate and advise the campus community on issues of open access;, offer guidance on university policy to the Library, faculty, students and staff; and provide consultations and informed recommendations on matters pertaining to scholarly communication, such as copyright and fair use, database licensing, and user privacy issues.

The University and the Library
With 34,000 students, UC San Diego is dedicated to the advancement of knowledge through excellence in education and research at the undergraduate, graduate, professional school and postdoctoral levels. For more than a decade, UC San Diego has been recognized as one of the top 10 public universities in the nation by US News & World Report and for the third year in a row as the 14th best university in the world by the Center for World-Class Universities at Shanghai Jiao Tong University. In 2015, for the sixth consecutive year, UC San Diego was ranked 1st in the nation by the Washington Monthly’s College Guide based on the positive impact the university has had on the country in terms of enabling social mobility, research productivity and civic engagement.
The UC San Diego Library is committed to student learning and success; the advancement of digital services to bolster faculty research and data preservation; and active sustainability and community engagement efforts. The Library plays a vital role in the University’s achievements and success and is continuously reimagining its portfolio of services, spaces, and resources to best meet the needs of the campus community. The Library is especially committed to the promotion of responsible scholarly communications at UC San Diego.

Responsibilities of the Position
The Scholarly Communications Librarian provides leadership and develops strategies for the effective promulgation of information about scholarly communications and open access publishing issues to campus user communities.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Providing faculty and graduate student support for the UC Open Access (OA) Policies (Faculty and Presidential)
  • Leading UC San Diego Library outreach efforts to faculty, graduate students, and other campus constituencies in support of scholarly communication innovations. Serving as a resource on the UC Open Access policies, copyright compliance, federal public access policies and open data funding mandates.
  • Convening and directing the work of the Library Scholarly Communications Working Group, which supports subject liaison librarians in facilitating effective communications regarding scholarly publishing, UC Open Access Policies, and related topics with their academic communities.
  • Actively engaging in outreach and sustaining strong, consistent, and effective communication channels between the Library and campus user groups. Promoting widespread awareness and use of OA resources and of OA publishing avenues/options for authors, researchers, and grad students.
  • Initiating and supporting ongoing scholarly communication education via workshops, information sessions, events, and resources in a range of formats.
  • Advising faculty, researchers and students on copyright, author rights, and publishing agreements.
  • Serving on UC-wide scholarly communication and related groups and ad hoc committees as needed.
  • Staying current with developments in scholarly communication, open access, academic publishing, copyright, research data curation, and related areas.
