Case Western Research University 
Associate Director for Creation and Curation Services

Kelvin Smith Library (KSL) at Case Western Reserve University seeks imaginative, collaborative and dynamic candidates for the position of Associate Director for Creation and Curation Services (AD). With visionary and strategic leadership the AD will lead the Digital Learning and Scholarship Team, which designs KSL’s technology-related services and facilitates digital scholarship programs, and the Scholarly Resources and Special Collections Team, which manages the library’s rare book, manuscript, and archival collections, and both analog and digital preservation.

CWRU is one of the most comprehensive research universities in the country. The University enrolls over 5,000 undergraduate students and over 6,000 graduate and professional students across a wide range of disciplines. CWRU is located in the University Circle area, a 550-acre, park-like concentration of approximately 50 cultural, medical, educational, religious, and social service institutions located at the eastern edge of the city center.

Reporting to the Associate Provost/University Librarian, the AD is a member of the library’s senior leadership team and manages human and financial resources for the aforementioned teams. Key strategic opportunities include reimagining the library’s services for e-research and digital scholarship, and developing a new vision for special collections in the 21st century. The AD also works with campus and external partners, cultivates potential donors, and is expected to engage in professional endeavors nationally and internationally.  

KSL seeks an energetic, creative and collaborative leader who will lead the integration and coordination of the Digital Learning and Special Collections teams to promote the visibility and accessibility of CWRU’s scholarly resources. The successful candidate will have a strong background in technology and great respect for the mission of an academic research library. Excellent communication and relationship building skills will be essential to this individual’s success. A Master’s degree in a relevant discipline, with completion of a second advanced degree is preferred; candidates must have qualifications consistent with appointment at the level of Librarian III or IV.
