Visiting Teaching and Learning Librarian
St. Mary’s College of Maryland is accepting applications for the one-year position of Visiting Teaching and Learning Librarian. This is a 12-month, full-time, non-tenure-track faculty position to begin August 1, 2023. The College seeks an enthusiastic and creative librarian to teach course-integrated information literacy classes in the academic disciplines, as well as in the campus first-year and transfer seminars. The librarian will also provide research support to students and faculty, assist in the development of library collections, and serve as a backup at our public circulation desk.
This is a great opportunity for a new or early career librarian interested in gaining experience as a liaison librarian in a small, supportive, undergraduate-focused liberal arts environment. This one-year appointment will prepare the librarian for continued successful employment in academic libraries.
Required qualifications: Candidates must have completed an ALA-accredited master’s degree (or expect to complete their degree before the starting date of employment).

Preferred qualifications: The successful candidate will demonstrate an interest in information literacy education and teaching, either through professional experience, internships, or coursework; possess the ability to work collaboratively with colleagues; and be dedicated to positively engaging with undergraduate students.
Non-sectarian since its founding, St. Mary's College of Maryland, a public Carnegie Baccalaureate, Arts and Sciences institution located in St. Mary's City, 70 miles southeast of Washington, D.C., has been designated as Maryland's public honors college. With selective admissions policies, academically talented students, and a rigorous curriculum, we offer a small college experience similar to that found at exceptional private colleges. The quality of life is enhanced by the recreational opportunities of the Chesapeake region and by our proximity to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.
