One of four research universities in the SUNY system, Binghamton enrolls more than 18,000 undergraduate and graduate students in its six schools and colleges. Founded in 1946, this relatively young university has swiftly built a reputation for excellence in undergraduate education that is bolstered by growing, high-quality graduate programs and a rapidly expanding research enterprise that places it among the elite universities in the nation that have earned very high research activity status in the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.
Binghamton is consistently ranked among the top 40 public universities in the nation and has been called the “premier public university in the northeast” by the Fiske Guide to Colleges for over a decade, distinguishing itself for its exceptional quality combined with affordability. The university has received national recognition for its special programs and overall success in comprehensive internationalization, as well as its residential communities led by tenured collegiate professors who seamlessly integrate life inside and outside the classroom, creating the feel of a small college with the resources of a major university. Binghamton recruits outstanding and diverse undergraduate students (one-third of whom are people of color), and Binghamton's overall student body hales from all 50 states and 100 countries.
The Binghamton University Libraries lay claim to more than 3.2 million books and journals and an expanding network of 225 electronic databases. The Binghamton Libraries is comprised of four physical locations: Glenn G. Bartle Library, Science Library, University Downtown, and the Annex.

Operating under the slogan "Connect – Discover – Create" the Libraries invite users to make personal and network connections, discover new (and old!) resources, and create new pathways to knowledge and solutions to problems.
Reporting to the provost and executive vice president for academic affairs, the dean is responsible for executing the Libraries’ strategic planning and implementation process in concert with divisional and university strategic plans and managing the full range of day-to-day operational functions and services of all departments within the library. This includes but is not limited to overseeing capital projects and fundraising efforts for the library, managing the overall budget and finance operations, and advancing inclusion, diversity equity, and accessibility initiatives.
A Master of Library Science (MLS/MILS) degree from an American Library Association accredited program is required, as well as, a record of academic achievement that merits tenure with an appointment at the rank of Full Librarian.
