University of Texas at Arlington


Are you an imaginative change agent? An innovative risk-taker? Do you have revolutionary concepts for taking a library well into the 21st century? If so, we need your skills and experience, and we invite applications from highly motivated, innovative, forward-thinking professionals.

The Library

Under the direction of our Dean, the UT Arlington Library has embarked on a voyage of rediscovery, reinvention, and reorganization. We seek employees and colleagues who embody our core organizational values of collegiality, flexibility, innovation, transparency, and life-long learning and who will help us move to a new model of service for our campus constituencies.

Knowledge is a powerful commodity. At The University of Texas at Arlington, it is a natural resource that has been flowing freely for well over a hundred years—and that has accelerated exponentially during the past decade. Witness the thriving research university that UT Arlington has become and the top-tier institution we continue to build.

-- James Spaniolo, former UT Arlington President

As the University accelerates its journey toward Tier One status, the library’s excellent staff and services are on the threshold of becoming an avant-garde 21st-century organization.
