The Library supports the University to achieve its internationally recognised research and scholarship profile by providing access to high quality print and electronic information resources and information management services. Library staff work in partnership with the academic community to provide convenient access to high quality information resources and to promote University of Sydney research to the world through its e-Scholarship initiatives. Library environments provide highly valued technology, enriching learning spaces and 24/7 opening.
The Library provides services under four major divisions:

The Academic Services division manages research support services and resources that support academics, researchers, undergraduate and post graduate students to create and communicate new knowledge. This division is responsible for the delivery and evaluation of information and research skills development programs and online learning materials.

Reporting to the Manager, Information and Research Skills, the Learning Designer Graduate will work closely with other professional staff within the Library, to apply their learner-centred approach to the creation of educational resources.
The University values courage and creativity; openness and engagement; inclusion and diversity; and respect and integrity. As such, we see the importance of recruiting talent aligned to these values and are looking for a Learning Designer Graduate who can:
- contribute to the design and delivery of a user experience (UX) framework for the creation of information and digital learning training programs
- provide technical expertise and support to the work area in the development of educational resources
- support and advise Library Staff on the effective use of educational and multimedia technologies across various information and digital literacy programs.

You’ll use your communication skills to facilitate group sessions, develop and document processes and procedures. Experience of working in a library or learning support environment is desirable.
The University Library’s modernisation agenda is focused on delivering high quality, client-centred services, information resources and learning spaces to support world-class research and research-informed teaching. As such, we are seeking to appoint innovative, energetic and collaborative individuals like you, to join our Academic Services team.
