private college

*WEBSITE:* birthingway.edu

Birthingway College of Midwifery is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit college that
seeks to set the standard for educating excellent practitioners of the
midwifery arts and sciences. We’ve been educating birth and lactation
professionals for over twenty years, with programs in midwifery, lactation
consultation, labor doula, postpartum doula, and childbirth education.

We are looking for someone to work full time as our head librarian. In
addition to managing the day-to-day operations of Birthingway’s
library (including
circulation, reference, and cataloging), we are hoping to find someone who
is willing to devote energy to making our library more of a community hub. We
have many wonderful resources, and we want to share them! A masters degree
in Library or Information Sciences from an ALA accredited institution is

We also want to be open about the fact that the person who steps into this
position will be doing so during a time of transition. We will be making
two library moves in the next year—a temporary consolidation move, followed
by a move to a new campus a few months later. While this will make the
on-boarding process more challenging in the short term, this is a great
opportunity for someone excited about the prospect of taking ownership over
creating a new library space.

At Birthingway, we honor the unique experience, knowledge, and skills of
each member of our community, and foster a work environment committed to
diversity, multi-vocal decision-making, and compassionate
communication. Benefits
include health insurance, tuition waivers, and four weeks of PTO per year
to meet our employee’s needs for work/life balance.
