Portland Community College is accepting applications for a Reference and Instruction Librarian at Cascade campus located in North Portland's Albina neighborhood.

PCC Reference and Instruction librarians engage with individual and groups of students, staff, and community members in a wide variety of information seeking activities, with a focus on developing lifelong information literacy skills. Librarians are responsible for selection and deselection of library materials, and also provide the college with an annual assessment of student learning. Library faculty work in a highly collaborative environment that requires close working relationships with library colleagues dispersed on four campuses, as well as campus-based colleagues in the library, other academic departments, student services, and administration. PCC librarians serve on library and college-wide committees; they participate in, and in some cases lead, working groups to support college initiatives. Additionally, they actively participate in state/regional library groups and associations, including representing PCC on committees in the Orbis Cascade Alliance consortia.

Successful candidates will have a Master of Library Science or equivalent from an ALA-accredited library school (or foreign equivalent); one year’s teaching experience; knowledge of teaching methods and curriculum design; ability to listen, speak, and act with cultural awareness in a wide variety of contexts; ability to work independently and collaboratively; strong commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
