Position
The University Library is hiring a forward-thinking and collegial Reference & Instruction Librarian at the Clarkston Campus.

More than one-third are international refugees. This same diversity is reflected in the Perimeter College student population, which is one of the most multicultural campuses in the University System of Georgia.
Georgia State University, an innovative urban public research university, is a national leader in graduating students from diverse backgrounds. Georgia State readies students for professional pursuits, educates future leaders, and prepares citizens for lifelong learning. Enrolling one of the most diverse student bodies in the nation at its downtown research campus, at its vibrant branch campuses, and online, the university provides educational opportunities for more than 50,000 students at the graduate, baccalaureate, associate and certificate levels.
