HEAD, PUBLIC HEALTH LIBRARY
Associate/Full Librarian
$59,832-76,476 per annum, based upon qualifications

The Library of the University of California at Berkeley is seeking an
energetic and creative individual to head its Public Health Library, a
subject specialty library that supports the teaching, learning, and research
activities of the University's faculty, students, staff, and the broader
community of health professionals and the public.  In addition to serving
these constituencies, this library also provides special information
services for California public health agencies, such as the California
Department of Health Services (DHS) through contractual arrangements.
The Public Health Library is one of eight Science libraries on the Berkeley
campus. Its collection numbers 95,000 volumes and 1,450 current serial
titles. The Public Health Library (including a satellite library-the
Occupational and Environmental Health Library approximately six miles away
in Oakland) has a total staff of 5.65 FTE professionals and 5.5 FTE
para-professionals and 4 FTE student library employees.
Internationally renowned, the Berkeley Library is the oldest and largest
library in the University of California system, and a major research
facility. The Library serves over 23,000 undergraduates, 9,000 graduate
students, and almost 1,500 faculty.  Current collections number over 9
million volumes and over 56,000 current serial titles.  Library facilities
on the Berkeley campus include the Doe/Moffitt Library complex, The Bancroft
Library, the East Asian Library and more than 20 additional libraries
serving subject specialties and the professional schools.  The Library is a
member of the Center for Research Libraries (CRL) and the Association of
Research Libraries (ARL), and is an active participant in the California
Digital Library.  The Library has a budget of $50 million, and employs over
440 full-time staff, and more than 600 part-time students.
SUMMARY OF RESPONSIBILITIES:
Reporting to the Associate University Librarian, Director of Public
Services, the Head of the Public Health Library manages the Public Health
Library staff and provides overall direction for library programs and

Health and the researchers at the California Department of Health Services.
The incumbent is responsible for the departmental library budget as well as
regularly negotiating and renewing the contracts with California state
agencies.  The Head oversees the provision of all contract services,
including document delivery, computer literature searching, and current
awareness services. The Head coordinates collections and services provided
by the Public Health Library, including reference, instruction, circulation,
collection development, outreach, and Internet based services.
The Head will have responsibility for coordinating the planning and design
of a new Public Health Library facility, in close collaboration with the
School of Public Health.  The Public Health Library will remain in its
current location in Warren Hall until such time as the library moves into
surge space, scheduled for 2004, and then into new quarters after the
construction of the new School of Public Health building
