    Position Overview

    The position, based in Pew's Washington, D.C., office, reports to the director, evaluation and program learning and manages four staff (three librarians and one archivist). The evaluation and program learning unit is committed to fostering knowledge sharing that informs and improves Pew's work. As a senior member of this unit, the senior manager will contribute to learning by overseeing the library and archives team, and leading two primary efforts: 
    1. Knowledge services: Help staff to access and use information about the history of Pew and its past and current programs. Provide staff with relevant external resources via Pew's library, which manages both print and digital subscriptions to academic, news, and legal resources. The team's three librarians are skilled in library science, legal research, and library systems.  
    2. Information curation: Help to ensure current and historical information about Pew is organized, of high-quality, appropriately preserved and archived, and easily accessible to Pew staff. This includes overseeing Pew's archivist, serving as a lead curator for program information of archival value, and supporting the curation efforts of other units by acting as a facilitator and expert resource. In this role, the senior manager will be an important contributor to organization-wide data governance and data management efforts. 
    This position requires an experienced information management professional with a solid record managing teams and the ability to apply technical and management skills to develop, implement, and enhance systems and processes that support internal knowledge sharing. The senior manager will provide stewardship of Pew's library, its historical programmatic and administrative records, and be a collaborator who can foster connections and provide input to cross-organizational groups working to develop and implement effective data and information management solutions and practices.
