The Library Human Resources (LHR) Department is committed to recruiting and developing an excellent and inclusive workforce of librarians, staff, and student assistants whose high-quality service fulfills the mission of the UCI Libraries.  We recognize and encourage the value of diversity in the workplace.    We administer and effectively communicate sound policies and practices that treat employees with dignity, respect, and equality while maintaining compliance with UC policies, labor agreements, and employment laws. 

LHR is the first point of contact for all library employees regarding all human resources matters.
