Director Division of Special Collections

The University of Nevada, Las Vegas Libraries invites nominations for and applications from innovative, collaborative, externally-focused applicants to lead the Division of Special Collections as Director. The primary mission of Special Collections is to collect, preserve, provide discovery and access to, and promote, interpret, and instruct in the use of our materials.  The Special Collections Division documents the history, culture, and physical environment of the city of Las Vegas, the Southern Nevada region, the global gaming industry, and the University of Nevada Las Vegas. Reporting to the Dean of Libraries, the Director is a member of the senior management team sharing responsibility for the overall management of the Libraries. A primary role of the Director will be in external relations, fund-raising and community engagement: documenting and communicating to stakeholders the value of Special Collections to the university and to the community. The Director will work closely with the Dean, the Libraries Director of Development, and the Libraries External Relations Manager in development and communications activities for the Libraries.  The successful candidate will combine traditional experience and competencies with knowledge of current trends in Special Collections and will lead the staff in shaping and implementing a shared vision, with a focus on continuous improvement.
