The Collections Lead Librarian evaluates, strengthens, and promotes the collections of the Syracuse University Libraries in alignment with the research, teaching, and learning needs of the University. Working with liaison librarians, the librarian provides broad-based budgetary management, reviews, negotiates for, and procures significant resources that support research and learning. This includes developing and leading initiatives to gather data and feedback and building a broad under- standing of faculty and student needs at Syracuse University. By promoting an environment of evidence-based collection acquisition, management and review based on data analysis and knowledge of scholarly communications trends, the librarian boosts the University’s ability to project its presence and values in the rapidly evolving academic publishing ecosystem and contributes to the development of sustainable and efficient collections infrastructure. As the team lead for the collections team, the librarian supervises 3-5 collections team members who collectively develop the University’s collections and works closely with the Head of Collections and Research Services and three other Lead Librarians to coordinate activities of DRS.
