The Georgia Tech Library invites applications for an energetic, flexible, and innovative professional to join a collaborative partnership between The Georgia Institute of Technology Library and Emory University Libraries.  The Georgia Institute of Technology is situated on an attractive 400-acre campus in the heart of Atlanta. The Institute is a major public research university with premier programs in science, engineering, management, and other disciplines. Emory University is a private research university located in Atlanta’s historic Druid Hills suburb. Emory University is recognized for its outstanding liberal arts colleges, graduate and professional schools, and one of the Southeast's leading health care systems.

Summary:

The Georgia Institute of Technology Library and Emory University Libraries are partnering to jointly construct and operate a high-density, state-of-the-art, environmentally controlled facility for the long term housing of paper and microform materials.  This facility, located at the Briarcliff Property on Emory University’s Atlanta campus, is referred to as the Library Service Center (LSC).  The overall goal of the partnership between Georgia Tech and Emory University is to create a shared library collection and services for faculty and students in both institutions.

The LSC will receive, store, retrieve, and scan LSC materials; distribute materials both electronically and physically; provide a reading room for research and reading.

The overall operations of the LSC will be directed by the Director. The Director will establish and monitor operational strategies, goals, and priorities in alignment with both Georgia Tech and Emory University.

The LSC is a multi-phase project with the initial building phase delivered in late 2015 and the library collections ingestion process beginning shortly thereafter.

Primary Duties and Responsibilities:

The Director is responsible for the successful leadership and management of the LSC according to the strategic direction set by EmTech and the LSC Management Group.
