University of Arizona Libraries is an exciting place to work and offers the opportunity to make an impact in the field of digital curation and digital scholarship (we’ve just hired a Digital Scholarship Librarian that will be part of this larger cohort).

Our amazing foodways, sunny weather, and a vibrant arts community makes for a great quality of life.
