                                     Reference-Bibliographer

                                             The Nimitz Library
                                          U.S. Naval Academy

The Nimitz Library, United States Naval Academy, seeks a dynamic
librarian with experience, energy, initiative, and enthusiasm for this
new position as reference-bibliographer for one or more of its academic
departments.

As reference-bibliographer, the librarian will serve as the liaison to
one or more of the Naval Academy's academic departments in the
humanities and social sciences (e.g., English), and will be an active
participant in instruction, reference, collection development and
faculty collaboration.  He or she will also work closely with other USNA
librarians to develop innovative services and programs for this academic
community.

Specific responsibilities will be to:
-- provide the point of contact between the Library and faculty in one
or more of the academic departments in order to ensure library support
of academic information needs for faculty and midshipmen;
-- provide both upper-division and lower-division instruction to
midshipmen in support of academic assignments in collaboration with
faculty;
-- provide reference/research assistance to midshipmen, faculty and
other authorized library users;
-- serve on the Reference Desk which may include evening and/or weekend
hours in support of the Library's schedule;
-- build and maintain collections in the assigned subject area(s); and

-- report to the Head of Reference.

The strongest candidates will be self-motivated, flexible team players,
comfortable with change while also appreciative of the importance of
continuities.

The Naval Academy is the Navy's undergraduate college, with 4,150
students, more than 500 civilian and military faculty, and 18 major
fields of study in three academic divisions (seven in Engineering, seven
in Math & Science, and four in Humanities/Social Sciences).  The Academy
has produced five Rhodes Scholars in the last ten years alone.

The Nimitz Library has a service-oriented staff of 41 FTE (including 18
professional librarians) and some 550,000 volumes of books and bound
periodicals, plus government documents, microforms, extensive holdings
in Special Collections and Archives, and a growing array of electronic
resources.  "Library Excellence" is one of the initiatives in the Naval
Academy's Strategic Plan, and the Library has been receiving significant
budgetary increases for acquisitions.  For additional information about
the Library, see http://www.usna.edu/Library.

Located in Annapolis, the capital of Maryland and "the sailing capital
of America", the Naval Academy is 30 miles from both Washington, D.C.,
and Baltimore, in the beautiful Chesapeake Bay Area.

Beginning salary will be at least the first step of the GS-11 ($46,469)
pay scale, higher depending on experience or other qualifications.

EVALUATION FACTORS (Knowledge, Skills and Abilities):  Applicants
should demonstrate how their experience relates to the six factors
listed below, which are essential for successful performance in the
position.  These should be addressed in the body of the resume or
submitted with the application through Resume Builder in the "Other"

1. Knowledge of and direct experience with formal
instruction/information literacy in academic libraries.
2. Experience in providing reference/research assistance to students,
faculty, and other library users.
3. Knowledge of the methodology and tools of collection development,
which are required to assume responsibility for building one or more
areas of the library's collections.
4. Experience in collaborating with faculty in assigned academic
departments on behalf of the Library.
5. Sufficient knowledge of the subjects taught at the United States
Naval Academy in order to respond effectively to the library-related
needs of students and faculty.

development, and faculty collaboration, while serving as an active
participant in a program of formal instruction/information literacy.
This experience must have been gained from at least one academic
(defined as baccalaureate degree-granting) institution and must include
experience working with faculty in one or more departments.
