Overview
The Arthur Mendel Music Library, a branch of the Princeton University Library, seeks accomplished, energetic, and highly motivated candidates for the position of Coordinator for Public Services and Outreach.

Under the general supervision of the Music Librarian and working collaboratively with two other full-time staff members, the successful candidate will manage all aspects of public and circulation services in the Mendel Music Library; provide leadership for student workers; co-author, interpret and enforce library policies; oversee and perform front-line reference service; coordinate Mendel's outreach, maintenance, and security operations; and assist with collection development, new materials processing, and records management.

Designed by Spanish architect Juan Navarro Baldeweg and opened in 1997, the Music Library shares the Woolworth Center of Musical Studies with the Department of Music. Mendel's extensive collections in print, multimedia, and electronic formats, plus its well-appointed and inviting study spaces, support the complex and varied research and performance needs of Princeton's preeminent music faculty, some fifty graduate students in musicology, music theory, and composition, undergraduate music concentrators and certificate candidates, and hundreds of non-majors participating in the department's outstanding performance ensembles. Mendel is also a haven for students, faculty, and staff from the entire campus who study music and the performing arts as part of their interdisciplinary work or personal pursuits. Mendel's highly regarded collections also attract a wide range of outside users, including researchers from across the U.S. and abroad and musicians from the local area. Mendel also houses the materials supporting the programs in dance and music theater associated with Princeton's Lewis Center for the Arts.
