Florida International University is a diverse research university serving more than 38,000 students. Its College of Law, authorized by the Florida Legislature in 2000, opened its doors to its Inaugural Class in 2002. The law school was provisionally approved by the American Bar Association in 2004 and fully approved in 2006, the shortest possible time for attaining full accreditation. It is presently a candidate for membership in the Association of American Law Schools.
The College of Law is seeking an Associate Dean for Information Resources, with primary responsibilities for the Law Library. The Associate Dean will have significant responsibility for the development of the collection, for the hiring and supervision of professional, technical, and support staff, and for the management of the information resources of the law library. The Associate Dean may also play an instructional role in the legal research curriculum of the College of Law and, depending upon qualification, in other curricular offerings.
Substantial experience as director of an academic law library is preferred. Candidates, in addition to holding a J.D. and a degree in library sciences, should have the credentials for a tenured or tenure-track appointment, which would include significant professional accomplishments and some publications. The Associate Dean for Information Resources will be a member of the faculty of law; tenure, when awarded, will be in the Law Library.
Review of applications will begin on January 12, 2009. Salary will be competitive and commensurate with experience.
