Associate University Librarian for Special Collections and Director of Rose Library

Department: Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (Rose Library)

Salary: Commensurate with qualifications and experience

Position Availability: Immediately

Library Summary

The Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library (Rose Library) promotes access, learning, scholarship, equity, and justice by documenting, preserving, and making accessible distinctive and diverse manuscript collections, archival records, and rare books. The Rose Library's key collections are African American history and culture, poetry and literature, Southern political, cultural, and social movements, Emory University history, and rare books.

The Rose Library fosters original research and critical engagement with the past by advancing teaching with special collections and drawing in diverse communities through innovative outreach, programming, and exhibitions. As the largest special collections library at Emory, the Rose Library leads collaborations on products and services of benefit to all special collections. In addition, Rose Library plays a key role as a collaborator with members of the President's Office on a re-examination of Emory's history and documented past.

Emory, a private university, has an institutional mission “to create, teach, preserve, and apply knowledge in the service of humanity” and the university and the libraries champion the principles of diversity, equity, inclusion, and social justice that undergirds that mission. The Rose Library focuses on providing equitable access to collections by increasing the number of collections available online through Emory Digital Collections. In addition, the Rose Library has a planning grant from NEH to support the Wayfinder Project: Revealing Black Print Culture to a Linked World as well as a planning grant from the Mellon Foundation to create a virtual reading room, in collaboration with the National Library of Ireland, to expand access to Irish literary collections and serve as a model for removing barriers to accessing special collections while respecting the rights of authors.
