The Indiana University Libraries invites applications for a Special Collections Archivist as a part of the IU Libraries' third cohort of the Diversity Residency Program. Designed for a new or early-career individual, this three-year appointed position provides opportunities for the incumbent to apply professional knowledge and skills, develop a professional network, and gain valuable experience toward career goals and opportunities in academic librarianship. As a member of the Association of College & Research Libraries (ACRL) Diversity Alliance (https://www.ala.org/acrl/issues/diversityalliance), the IU Libraries’ Diversity Residents are part of a cohort established by ACRL Diversity Alliance member libraries. The purpose of the resident program is to provide underrepresented racial and ethnic candidates with professional positions, engage them in professional learning and service at Indiana University, and support their success in academic librarianship. The Diversity Resident Program is a part of the IU Libraries’ commitment to cultivating diversity within the profession and fostering an appreciation of diversity. The Resident will be supported by the Residency Steering Committee, a group of library colleagues who provide support, mentoring, feedback, and career development guidance. Significant collections within the Music Library include the Latin American Music Center (LAMC), founded in 1961 and the oldest of its kind in the United States. There are unprocessed materials in need of archival attention that belong to the LAMC collection, as well as additional materials from notable collections; some donated from outside the university and others given by music professors from the Jacobs School.
