Berkeley Law is one of the nation’s premier law schools, located at one of the world’s great universities. The Law Library is the hub of intellectual activity at the Law School. Its mission is to provide information resources and services that support the instructional and research programs offered by Berkeley Law and to serve the legal information needs of the University, the legal profession, and the general public. Since 1894 the Law Library’s rich collection has evolved from a modest several hundred volumes housed in a few dusty alcoves in a basement on campus, to its current status as a world-class center for legal scholarship and research with close to 875,000 volumes and volume equivalents. The collection is rich in legal history and common law material, and through the Robbins endowment has one of the finest collections of comparative law, international and human rights law and civil law in the world. Berkeley Law is also home to the world-renowned Robbins Collection in Civil and Religious Law. Students, faculty and scholars from all over the world come to the Law Library and Robbins Collection to conduct research and engage in legal scholarship.

The Director manages all aspects of the law library’s operations, including budgeting, financial management, vendor negotiations, collections, reference and research, personnel, space, instruction, student computing, strategic planning, and library technology initiatives. The Director oversees a professional and paraprofessional staff of over 30 individuals and an annual budget of $3 million. The Director also collaborates with campus and community members, and with outside professionals and organizations, in furtherance of the library’s mission. The Director is responsible for planning and executing the strategic vision of the library, working with the faculty, students, and staff to develop the library’s overall direction and its relationship to the law school’s curriculum and programs. The Director ensures the Law Library’s collection and resources are sufficient to meet the primary goals of supporting the teaching, learning, research, and service needs of the Law School community, and also ensures, in areas relevant to the position, that the Law School is in compliance with accreditation standards and membership requirements of the ABA and AALS. The Director provides leadership in establishing and implementing both innovative and traditional methods of access to and of delivery of information. The Director manages the development and teaching of courses in legal research and serves as an advisor to the law school’s 13 journal publications

In keeping with ABA requirements, the selected candidate will be appointed as Law Librarian and also as Teaching Professor of Law (Lecturer with Security of Employment). Any teaching assignments will be based on curricular needs.

Berkeley Law is also committed to addressing the family needs of faculty, including dual career couples and single parents. For information about potential relocation to Berkeley, or career needs of accompanying partners and spouses, please visit http://ofew.berkeley.edu/new-faculty.
