Library Director and College Librarian

  • Whitman College
  • Walla Walla, WA

Whitman College seeks a creative, innovative, and strategic leader to serve as the next Library Director and College Librarian (Library Director) of the Penrose Library. The search is being launched as the current Library Director, Dalia Corkrum, will retire following almost two decades of service at Whitman.

Reporting to the Provost and Dean of the Faculty (Provost), the Library Director is a critical partner in, and facilitator of, intensive student and faculty intellectual engagement. The next Library Director will build upon a solid foundation and excellent collections to collaboratively develop and articulate a comprehensive strategic vision for the Whitman College Library. Working closely with the Provost and library staff, the next Director must develop measurable goals and articulate new priorities that will guide the Library’s path forward, encompassing both the Penrose Library’s role on campus and its relationship to the evolving information landscape. The next Library Director will identify creative and effective ways to continue the evolution of the Penrose Library with an increasingly global, diverse, and relevant collection of materials accessible through a range of content platforms.
