Description

Search for the University Librarian and Dean of Libraries
Ann Arbor, Michigan

The University of Michigan ("U-M") seeks a strategic, visionary, and collaborative leader to serve as its next University Librarian and Dean of Libraries ("Dean"). This is an opportunity to lead one of the top academic research libraries in North America, with more than 14,850,000 physical and digital volumes, nearly 450 library personnel, 10 locations, and an annual budget of approximately $63 million.

Founded in 1817, the University of Michigan was one of the first public universities in the nation, established before the territory became a state and 45 years before the Morrill Act of 1862 created the modern, public land-grant university system. Throughout its 200-year history, it has maintained the highest levels of education, scholarship, and research. It is admired and envied for its ambition, innovation, breadth and depth at scale, emphasis on collaboration, and its strong sense of community.

These qualities are present in the University of Michigan Library ("U-M Library"), which also has its own proud traditions of service excellence and leadership among libraries. The Library supports teaching, learning, and discovery across the University's 19 schools and colleges, with top programs in the arts and humanities, social sciences, biomedical sciences, business, law, and engineering, and one of the largest and most distinguished academic medical centers in the world. Critically, it aids clinical work by care providers who need access to the latest information under enormous time constraints. U-M Library is the institution that sets direction for major developments in the field: HathiTrust was created at the University of Michigan. The Library is also known for its partnership with Google to digitize the bound print volumes of the U-M collection, providing scholars and the general public with access to the Library's resources.

This is a moment full of potential for the University and the Library. The University Librarian and Dean of Libraries will join U-M at a time when the University prepares for the arrival of a new president, and as the institution lays the foundation for its upcoming comprehensive campaign. Reporting to the Provost, who acts as the institution's chief academic officer and chief budgeting officer, the Dean will develop and communicate an inspiring, sustainable vision for the Library, one that aligns with its rich history and anticipates future directions. The University Librarian and Dean will advance and implement a plan to meet the physical requirements and infrastructure of the Library; secure the financial support necessary to run a world-class library system; strengthen organizational health and culture, including with respect to antiracism and social justice; and serve as a collaborative, engaged thought partner and manager. The University welcomes interest from all with a distinguished record of achievement in research libraries and/or in the academy.

A search advisory committee has been formed and Isaacson, Miller, the national executive recruiting firm, has been retained to support the committee. Confidential questions, nominations, and applications should be submitted electronically to:
