Help us advance inclusion, diversity, and accessibility in the Libraries to ensure a sense of equity and belonging for all.

Indigenous Studies Librarian

NYU’s exciting new Center for Indigenous Studies has created a need for a Librarian with the knowledge, languages, skills, and networks to support NYU scholars and students working in Indigenous Studies. The Indigenous Studies Librarian will grow and steward our collection of Indigenous materials, help students and faculty find and use these materials in their learning and research, and help NYU produce world-class scholarship in Indigenous Studies.

Latin American, Caribbean, Spanish and Portuguese Studies Librarian

The Latin American, Caribbean, Spanish, and Portuguese Studies Librarian is a crucial position to support NYU’s excellence in these areas. This librarian will support a thriving language community that spans large regional/geographic areas as well as students and faculty across multiple schools and programs at NYU.

Hebrew and Judaic Studies Librarian

The Hebrew and Judaic Studies Librarian will support the scholars in the Skirball Department of Hebrew and Judaic Studies as well as the newly created NYU Center for the Study of Antisemitism. This librarian will add materials to our exceptional collection of materials in Hebrew and Judaic Studies, help students and faculty find and use these materials in their learning and research, and support programming around Hebrew and Judaic Studies as well as the study of Antisemitism.

Librarianship Mentor Fund

The Librarianship Mentor Fund will allow NYU librarians to mentor library-school students from historically underrepresented groups. The fund will be used to create a structured two-year professional development and mentorship program for five Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) students in the New York City area in partnership with tri-state library schools.

NYU Press Accessible E-Books Fund

An integral part of the NYU Libraries, NYU Press publishes books across the humanities and social sciences. Infused with the conviction that the ideas of the academy matter, NYU Press fosters knowledge that resonates within and beyond the walls of the university. If the university is the public square for intellectual debate, NYU Press is its soapbox, offering original thinkers a forum for the written word. This fund will allow us meet digital accessibility standards and ensure that NYU Press books are accessible to a global audience of scholars, students, and general readers.
