Staff Archivist

Oregon State University Libraries

Corvallis, Oregon

Closing date: March 23, 2006.


The OSU Archives seeks an archivist with skills and interest in providing innovative reference services to users, enhanced online description of archival collections through Encoded Archival Description, and delivery of archival materials through the OSU Libraries digital collections.  The Staff Archivist will participate in all aspects of the Archives program with primary responsibility for the Archives reference and public service activities and supervision of student assistants.


The Oregon State University Archives, established in 1961, is a department of the University Libraries. The University Archives collects, describes, makes accessible to the public, and exhibits permanent records created or received by OSU departments and offices and records of private origin that complement those of the university.   The staff includes 6 archivists (5.4 FTE) and 4-6 student assistants (~2.5 FTE).


The OSU Libraries has been the lead institution for the Northwest Digital Archives since its establishment in 2002 and EAD finding aids of OSU Archives’ collections are currently provided through the NWDA finding aids database.  Archival materials (primarily photographs) are well represented in the OSU Libraries digital collections.


The Oregon Multicultural Archives was established in 2005 and will comprehensively acquire, preserve and make available collections that document the lives and activities of African American, Asian American, Latino and Native American communities of Oregon. The diverse collections will reflect how these communities have contributed to the identity of the state of Oregon.
