William & Mary is one of America’s oldest and best universities. Located in beautiful, historic Williamsburg, Virginia, the university claims both Jon Stewart and Thomas Jefferson as alumni. U.S. News and World Report recently ranked us sixth among all public universities, and the Library itself was ranked 17th on the list of best college libraries in the country. Working at William & Mary Libraries offers the opportunity to make a positive impact in the educational experience of our small, smart, diverse student body and the chance to experiment with new technologies and projects.

The Libraries provide support for training and opportunities for campus wide engagement.  We are committed to enhancing and promoting diversity and inclusion, and we welcome applications from individuals who have life experiences similar to those of underrepresented populations of the University.

The university is committed to offering its employees an attractive program of benefits that fosters well-being, acknowledges the need for balance in the work, family and personal lives of employees which, in turn, enables and sustains a productive workplace. To view benefits available, visit the Human Resources website.

Living in Williamsburg offers residents multiple opportunities to explore and experience U.S. history, to visit riverfront beaches and restaurants, to play at major tourist attractions, and to invest time in personal pursuits, such as  music, art, museums, shopping, food and wine/beer, hiking/bicycling, nature, sports and water sports, festivals, and more.  Williamsburg feels like a small college and tourist town, and is within an hour radius of larger cities such as Richmond and Virginia Beach.
