Goshen College is a Christian liberal arts institution that prepares students to thrive in life, leadership and service. We strive to model an inclusive community committed to transformative justice, peace, and sustainability. A respect and appreciation of the Anabaptist-Mennonite faith perspective and practices, and a commitment to the mission, vision, core values and community standards of Goshen College, are important for teaching and administrative faculty members.
Founded in 1906, the Mennonite Historical Library (MHL) at Goshen College (GC) maintains one of the most comprehensive collections in the world related to the Radical Reformation, Anabaptists, Hutterites, Mennonites, Amish and other Plain groups. Since the creation of the Institute for the Study of Global Anabaptism (ISGA) at Goshen College in 2011, the MHL has strengthened its collection and presentation of sources that document and serve Anabaptist-Mennonite communities outside of North America and Europe. These qualities have made the Mennonite Historical Library (MHL) at Goshen College an indispensable resource for a wide range of local, domestic, and international scholars.
The MHL curator partners with the ISGA director to leverage the MHL’s collection for greater global connection and storytelling in ways that enrich academic scholarship and current faith communities. The curator is responsible for collection development and preservation; organization and description of collection materials; providing research assistance to the library patrons; overseeing daily operations and personnel within the library; communicating the value of the MHL’s collections to students, faculty, and local and global researchers and partners; and promotion and outreach that deepens engagement and access.
The salary for this position $49,800 annually. Salary may be adjusted for additional qualifications above and beyond the requirement.
