The Latin American & Caribbean Collection (LACC) Librarian is a year-round (12-month) tenure-track library faculty position. The LACC is one of the finest such collections in the world. It contains approximately 500,000 book volumes, 1,100 current serial titles, some 50,000 microforms, and a growing body of digital materials. The LACC Librarian is responsible for the collection development of circulating materials in all formats, establishing collecting priorities for both physical and e-resources, in order to sustain and develop one of the preeminent collections of the University of Florida. The LACC Librarian engages with and provides services to a diverse, international community of patrons and develops strategies to increase collection visibility and usability. The Librarian liaises with faculty and students at the Center for Latin American Studies (http://www.latam.ufl.edu/) and other UF units to support existing and emerging research and teaching needs. The Librarian collaborates closely with the Latin American and Caribbean Special Collections Librarian, with Public Services personnel in the Department of Special & Area Studies Collections, and with others in the Libraries to manage LACC holdings and services. The LACC Librarian represents the Libraries in partnerships, consortia, and professional organizations relating to Latin American and Caribbean collections and projects, including a current initiative to digitize Cuban materials in partnership with the Biblioteca Nacional de Cuba José Martí and other repositories.
The LACC Librarian will serve on various committees and teams. To support all students and faculty, and foster excellence in a diverse, collaborative society, the Libraries actively seek candidates with culturally-rich lived experiences to work with individuals of diverse backgrounds, experiences, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, and perspectives. The LACC Librarian will pursue professional development opportunities, including research, publication, and professional service activities in order to meet library-wide criteria for tenure and promotion.
