Salt Lake City, UT 84112
June 27, 2021
The J. Willard Marriott Library seeks to recruit a group of archivists to support the development and promotion of manuscript and multimedia archives within the University of Utah’s Special Collections, which collects text, image, video, and audio materials that represent the history of Utah and the surrounding region.
The Library anticipates hiring four staff positions simultaneously, which will provide collection oversight and reference support for students, faculty, and community patrons. Working closely as a cohort and in conjunction with our senior archivists, department heads, and faculty within the division, the archivists will help to set the direction for collection development, access, and outreach priorities for the immediate and ongoing future. The Marriott Library is a major repository of the records of individuals, groups, and businesses across the city, state, and intermountain West. The archivists will be vital contributors to the effort to identify, preserve, and provide access to the voices and histories of a diverse range of communities and individuals in the region.
