Librarians Assembly

About Us

The Librarians Assembly is an advisory group that works in collaboration with the library administration on matters relating to individuals appointed to librarian faculty-equivalent positions in the Emory Libraries. The designation “librarian” applies to individuals with a variety of job titles, including but not limited to Archivist, Curator, Head of, Informationist, Librarian, or Manager.


The members of the Librarians Assembly are librarians employed by the Emory Libraries including: the Robert W. Woodruff Library; the Rose Manuscript, Archives and Rare Book Library; the Goizueta Business Library; the Woodruff Health Sciences Center Library; the Oxford College Library; the Emory Center for Digital Scholarship; and University Technology Services.
