My name is Laurie Jones, and I would like to express my interest in the Research Librarian position at XYZ. I have a Master's Degree in Library Science and an Undergraduate Degree in Art History. I have been working as a librarian for more than seven years.
I spent three years as a general librarian for the Community Sun Library in Boring, Oregon where I obtained a large working knowledge of filing systems, research practices, organizational programming, and customer service. For the last four years, I have worked as a research librarian for the Washington Art History Museum.
I am especially interested in your library because of your expansive collection of 16th century Italian Renaissance art. Michelangelo, da Vinci, and Raphael were the compelling forces in my decision to explore the world of art history and I passionately believe in expanding the accessibility of Italian painters and sculptors.
I believe that my background in art history and my skills as a librarian would benefit this collection and its ultimate use and public availability. Thank you for your consideration.
