Stanford Libraries is seeking a full-time Librarian to serve as the Harold Hohbach Historian

The Stanford University Libraries invites applications and nominations for the position of Harold Hohbach Historian for the Silicon Valley Archives (SVA).

This is an endowed position in the Silicon Valley Archives, which is part of the Humanities and Area Studies Resource Group. The Libraries values are rooted in a commitment of mutual respect, the idea that every member of the staff has something to contribute, and that learning is constant.  We seek a team member who is ready to share their skills and perspectives and work in a highly collaborative environment.

The Silicon Valley Archives, already the preeminent repository of Silicon Valley collections, is poised to become a world-class resource for the study of the region’s rise and its impact.  Its collections will serve as a catalyst for research, instruction, and debate about Silicon Valley across the campus and around the world. Working in close collaboration with and reporting to the Harold C. Hohbach Curator, the Hohbach Historian will participate in setting the strategy and vision for the SVA’s outreach program and in shaping the collections of the leading archive of the region’s economic and social history. The Hohbach Historian will serve along with the Hohbach Curator as a public face of the Archives in the media, with industry and academia, and with potential donors. Historians of technology, historians of business and high-technology companies, and historians of the 20th-century Western United States with significant experience supporting world-class research and instruction and building or working with library and archival collections in these areas are especially encouraged to apply.
