Shoreline CC Library
The Shoreline Community College library is a welcoming place with services and resources that support students, faculty, and staff across multiple modes of access including in-person and virtual access. These include reference services, instructional support, information literacy instruction, providing access to physical and virtual collections to support student information needs, programming to support student and information needs, collaborating across the college to support students, and providing a safe and accessible space for students to study.

Position 1- Outreach and Inclusion Librarian
The Outreach and Inclusion Librarian will lead and facilitate equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts with an emphasis on sustained action and cultural transformation through library outreach, programing, and public services in alignment with the college DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Accessibility) strategic plan.

Position 2- Professional and Technical Programs Librarian
We have seen a growth in hands-on professional and technical programs at the community college level.

This position will engage in outreach and collaboration with discipline faculty and students.
