Subject: Application for position of Academic Librarian

Dear Mr. Romano,

I am submitting this letter in interest of the position of Academic Librarian as advertised. I believe I can offer the management and organizational skills necessary to benefit and further the aims and interests of the academic library at University of New Hampshire.

To summarize the value I can bring to your organization, I have:

• In excess of 6 years of experience in managing, organizing, evaluating and disseminating academic information, as well as managing and developing collections of informational materials.

• Team and individual development skills, which include the recruitment and training of academic library personnel, as well as the evaluation of performance. I exercise a personal and supportive approach to encourage enhanced performance levels at both the individual and team levels.

• Experience of creating databases of informational resources, as well as updating and managing them. This is for both printed and electronic works.

• An adaptable and flexible nature attained through working in situations of a demanding nature.

I believe in building strong relationships with team members and fellow workers, whether equals or superiors. I have no doubt that my positive, team-centered attitude, coupled with my constant drive to produce solid results, will provide a constructive advantage to University of New Hampshire.

I feel sure that a meeting would be in both our interests and I would appreciate the opportunity to discuss how my experience and qualification can contribute to University of New Hampshire. Please contact me at (123)-119-5935, or email me at
