Location: United States, New York, New York City
Job Types: Professional
Categories: Special Librarianship
Management/ Supervisory
Archives/ Records Management

Frick Art Reference Library

Background: The Frick Art Reference Library was founded by Helen Clay Frick in 1920 "to encourage and develop the study of the fine arts, and to advance the general knowledge of kindred subjects." Today, it is one of the finest art history libraries in the United States. In addition to a book collection relating to the European and American fine arts and decorative arts from the fourth to the mid-twentieth century, the library also houses an extensive photographic research archive holding more than one million photographs that document the work of more than 36,000 artists. Although the Library was founded as a separate institution, financially supported almost entirely by Miss Frick until 1984, it is now an integral part of The Frick Collection and serves as a unique resource for the study and appreciation of art and its history.

The Frick Collection is an art museum consisting of more than 1,100 works of art from the thirteenth to the nineteenth century, displayed in the intimate surroundings of the former home of Henry Clay Frick. The residence, with its furnishings and works of art, has been open to the public since 1935. It is considered one of the world's most perfect museums;

The Library has an operating budget of about $4 million and 55-60 staff, of whom 20 are library professionals. It is a member of the New York Art Resources Consortium (NYARC), the Association of Research Institutes in Art History, and the RLG (Research Library Group) Programs. The Andrew W. Mellon Chief Librarian reports to the Director of the Frick Collection, who has been with the institution since 2003.

Summary: The Frick Collection seeks in its Chief Librarian an institution builder who can work within the framework of a distinctive museum of art. It is looking both for the skills and experience needed to manage a contemporary library and the scholarly background needed to lead a preeminent center for research in the history of art. An understanding of, and successful experience in addressing the major challenges facing academic research libraries, including collections development, technology integration, space planning and utilization, the intricacies of scholarly communication, and the need for effective staff and organizational development to support changing user needs and expectations will be especially valued. Candidates must bring a willingness and proven ability to develop financial resources.

- Strong communication and professional collaboration skills are required.
- Personal integrity, a lively intellect, and a collegial disposition are essential.
- A Master's degree in Library or Information Science is highly desirable.
