Librarian Internal Competitive
Reassignment Policy

It is in the best interest of the Library to recruit externally to fill career academic positions. However, if reassignment is the only feasible option for filling a vacancy, an internal, competitive process is the preferred st rategy. Reasons for choosing internal, competitive reassignment instead of open recruitment would include, but not be limited to:

  • To provide special opportunities for librarians to build upon skills already acquired and/or to develop new areas of expertise in support of library functions and priorities.
  • To implement strategic priorities requiring the transfer of focus from one area to another.
  • To reassign staff to meet minimum service levels in times of restricted funds.
If it is necessary to fill a position through competitive reassignment the University Librarian or his/her designee, will consider the needs of the department/unit, the length of the assignment, timing, funding, strategic priorities, and sk ills of the librarians in the available pool. Whenever internal competitive reassignment or rotation is announced, CAPA will be consulted with regard to the posting.
