The Instructional Technology Librarian in the James B. Duke Memorial Library will work with a dedicated library team at Johnson C. Smith University, a private Historically Black College and University (HBCU) in Charlotte, NC. The successful candidate will be a creative, innovative, engaged, and student-centered librarian with a commitment to in-person and digital instruction and to strengthen engagement with students and faculty. The Instructional Technology Librarian will focus on providing information literacy instruction to first-year and undergraduate transfer students, and will work with faculty and campus partners to support the university’s emphasis on undergraduate research and career readiness.

The Instructional Technology Librarian will work collaboratively with other librarians to cultivate partnerships with faculty and to develop and deliver services that support the university’s teaching, learning, and research activities. The successful candidate will be comfortable with delivering content both in-person, in a blended teaching style combining online and in-person learning, and in a fully online environment.

The Instructional Technology Librarian will also take the lead in developing the library’s transition to a more innovative and collaborative learning space, which will increasingly incorporate technology, Maker spaces, and team projects and initiatives. The Instructional Technology Librarian will help reimagine these spaces and propose opportunities to use them to further engage with faculty, students, and community members, plan library events or lifelong learning sessions, and to promote library services.
