    The University of Chicago Library seeks an innovative service-oriented librarian to develop and deliver research services to Slavic and Eastern European studies scholars. The Librarian will work with other subject librarians to develop scholarly collections and provide access to resources that cross traditional disciplinary boundaries and support new fields of inquiry. By building relationships and engaging with faculty, staff and students of The Center for East European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (CEERES), the Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures, and other academic programs, the Librarian will identify opportunities to promote and develop new library services and share expertise to support teaching, learning and research in Slavic and Eastern European studies.

    The University of Chicago Library has nearly comprehensive collections in the areas of Russian, Czech and Slovak studies and collects at more basic levels in Polish, Hungarian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Albanian, Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian/Slovenian, Albanian, Greek, Romanian, and central Asian languages. Collections are concentrated in the humanities and social sciences with special strengths in major Russian authors, Slavic linguistics, women and gender studies, and Judaica. Another important resource is the Archive of Czechs and Slovaks Abroad (ACASA), a collection created by peoples who left their European homes to settle in other countries and consisting of diverse materials including books, diaries, letters, newsletters, and photographs.
