UNIVERSITY OF CALIFORNIA, LOS ANGELES

Martin and Bernard Breslauer Professorship in Bibliography

The Information Studies Department at the University of California, Los 
Angeles, announces an opening for the newly created Martin and Bernard 
Breslauer Chair in Bibliography. Endowed Chairs at UCLA are reserved for 
distinguished scholars and teachers at the Full Professor level.

It is expected that the Breslauer Professor will contribute to the 
Information Studies Department's long-standing leadership and innovation 
in all areas of bibliography, here understood to include: the study of 
the collection and description of books and other textual works; the 
study of the production and use of textual works as physical objects; 
and the history of the book, of book arts, and of print culture. 
Emergent areas in which the Department is also interested include: the 
history of transitions from print to digital formats, and of the impact 
of such transitions on the book arts, on publishing and access systems, 
and on reading; the design of bibliographic systems that offer scholars 
in the arts and humanities access to creative and intellectual works; 
and approaches to the study of bibliographic collection and description 
that are informed by artistic and humanistic perspectives.

The Breslauer Professor will be expected to teach in all of the 
Department's academic degree programs. He or she will also strengthen 
relationships between Information Studies and the UCLA Library's 
world-renowned Special Collections Department.

UCLA's Graduate School of Education and Information Studies (GSE&IS), in 
which the Information Studies Department is located, is a community of 
learning and action inspired by the principles of social justice and 
individual responsibility and by an ethic of caring. As researchers, 
teachers, and agenda setters in learning and information fields, the 
community promotes transformative practice and scholarship. As part of a 
public research university in a large urban setting, GSE&IS recognizes 
its commitment to the public trust.

QUALIFICATIONS: A doctoral degree in library and information studies or 
other related field; distinguished record of research, scholarly 
publication, and teaching; commitment to teaching and mentoring 
students; and capacity to provide intellectual leadership to the field. 
The Department values candidates who can add to the diversity of the 
faculty.
