The George Washington University invites applications for an innovative, strategic and creative leader for its University Archives program.

The University Archives is located administratively within the Libraries’ Special Collections and Archives Department. Special collections and archives, including the University Archives program, are a strategic priority of the University Libraries.

Reporting to the Associate University Librarian for Special Collections and Archives, the University Archivist provides leadership for the development of collections, tools and services to enhance and extend use of the University’s historical records and raise awareness of the archives’ services on campus. A priority for the position is to develop strong relationships within the libraries and with academic and administrative partners across campus. These collaborative relationships enable the archivist to identify at-risk historical materials, to provide timely record keeping advice, and to develop creative ways, many of them involving technology, to support campus information and research needs.

Key Libraries collaborators include the Scholarly Technology Group, the libraries’ development and communications officers, and Research and User Services librarians. Key collaborators across campus include External Relations, the Alumni Association, faculty, staff and administrators. The Archivist also seeks out and nurtures relationships external to the University that support the mission and activities of the Libraries and the University.

The archivist is deeply engaged in achieving department goals and furthering Libraries’ strategic directions and contributes to the profession through scholarship and service.
