Reference, Instruction, & Outreach Fellow; CSU Dominguez Hills

California State University Dominguez Hills is seeking enthusiastic and collaborative professionals to actively participate in our Reference, Instruction, and Outreach Services (RIOS). Here are some quick answers to questions you might have about the position:

What is the official description for the job?

As a RIOS Fellow, you will be responsible for providing high-quality research assistance, serving as a liaison to assigned academic departments, teaching information literacy sessions, creating online learning objects, and participating in outreach activities. You will also have the opportunity to explore a variety of public and support service areas in the library, as well as develop, propose, and lead a project based on your interests.

Shorter version: Team up with us in reference and instruction to help our students succeed!

Why is working for the CSU so awesome?

Glad you asked! The California State University system is the nation’s largest and most ​​affordable public four-year university system. We are the people’s university, so every day you get to make a difference, work in a diverse and inclusive environment, and foster intellectual growth. Plus, we have a strong faculty union, exemplary leadership, a faculty committed to social justice, and motivated students.

Is this position just working the reference desk?

Nope! Providing research services alongside our student research assistants is an important part of what we do, but it’s not everything. In addition to chat reference and in-person consultations you’ll also have the opportunity to serve as a liaison to assigned academic departments; edit and create library research guides; contribute to collection development related projects; teach information literacy sessions; and participate in the development of videos, tutorials, and other outreach and instructional materials. We typically work as teams and small groups on various projects as they arise throughout the year.

Where is Dominguez Hills? I’ve never heard of it…

The land we’re on is named for the family of Juan Jose Dominguez, a Spanish soldier who received a grant of 75,000 acres for grazing cattle from the governor of the Spanish province of California in 1784. Prior to the Dominguez family, the first inhabitants of this land were the Gabrielino Indians. Today we call this place Carson, California, which is in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County. Still not ringing any bells? We’re not far from Long Beach. If you want to nerd out on our history, check it out here: http://www.csudh.edu/campus-history/ . If you prefer sports to history, you may be interested to note that the Dignity Health Sports Park, home to the LA Galaxy and temporarily the LA Chargers, is right next door.

I’m new to academic librarianship. Should I still apply?

Definitely! We welcome people from all backgrounds and levels of experience as long as they are committed to ensuring that the university and the library are welcoming and safe spaces where all can thrive, create, work, and learn. Members of historically underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply. This is an excellent opportunity for an early career librarian who is interested in developing their skills across a variety of functional areas. Even if you haven’t worked in an academic library before, if you are collegial, enthusiastic, and as committed to public service as we are, you may well be a good fit!
