Summary
The Electronic Resources Librarian serves as the library’s serials control professional, providing scholarly information in the form of periodicals, newspapers, microform, electronic journals, newspapers, and databases to the campus community. This position is part of the Discovery and Access team, which focuses on direct services and support to faculty, students, staff, and Library colleagues.

Wheaton has been operating under a remote hybrid teaching model in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. It is our hope to return to an in-person teaching model for the fall of 2021. While this position may be temporarily remote, there is an expectation that the work performed will be on campus when the college determines it is safe to return to in-person operations.
