We may have the job you’re looking for!

  • Public Services Division
    Students that work at one of Mann Library’s Public Service Desks are responsible for the circulation of materials and equipment, maintaining the stacks, printing services (both CU Print and poster printing), as well as supporting Mann Library’s conference rooms and classrooms. Students wishing to apply for this position should possess an attention to detail, be able to perform and prioritize multiple tasks, have strong technical abilities, and have great customer service skills. We do not currently have any openings at our Public Service Desks. Please check back soon.
  • Collection Development & Digital Collections
    Students in the division of Collection Development & Digital Collections work in a team environment to help preserve and build Mann’s collections. Students working on digital collections help create scans and optical character recognition (OCR) of books, journals, documents and faculty papers, as well as other tasks involved with creating digital collections such as metadata and uploading to online repositories. They also help the department’s selectors in making informed decisions with new or gift acquisitions by searching bibliographic records in the library catalog, databases and other digital collections. Dependability and conscientious attention to detail are required. Mann is not hiring for this division at this time.
  • Administration
    Mann’s Administration office hires students to help with its diverse public affairs and outreach activities. Student assistants create online web pages, virtual exhibits, digital film clips and podcasts, produce outreach materials (brochures, posters, flyers, bookmarks, etc.), assist with exhibits, and help orchestrate special events. Students hired for web production should have strong web-related skills (will be working with HTML, Dreamweaver, Flash, FinalCut) in addition to excellent graphics skills. Graphics assistants will need to be proficient in Photoshop and other digital imagery software. Much of our Admin office work requires a fair dose of creativity, alert problem-solving skills, and the ability to work independently and handle sudden project changes. Conscientious commitment to producing high-quality publications is a must. For further details, email Eveline Ferretti.
