  • Welcome!

           Whether you are looking to start a career, looking for a mid-career change, or looking for a place to finish your career, I encourage you to consider applying for a position with the UI Libraries. As you’ve seen from this webpage, Iowa City and the University have a lot to offer.
           I moved to Iowa City in 2012 to take the job of Director, HR/Diversity Programs with the library. Besides the thrill of a new job and new colleagues, I’ve come to appreciate Iowa City and its countless cultural/art activities, the many parks, trails and lakes, the short driving distance to Chicago, St. Louis, and Kansas City, and the bald eagles that roost here over the winter.
           Iowa City and surrounding communities are in transition as they enjoy increases in population size, diversity, demand for skilled workers, and more. The UI Libraries and the University of Iowa have key roles to play in the transformation of the area into a welcoming and inclusive environment. You can be part of that effort.
