Science Librarian
April 14, 2007 9:24 PM

Mefi-brarians or mefi-brarians-to-be, come work at a growing academic library in the Midwest. We offer boundless opportunities for anyone who wants to provide innovative services to users and make a real contribution to campus, almost unreasonably warm and friendly coworkers, and a kickass dean who values those who cut the usual academic crap and get to work.

This is a far more technology-focused position than most traditional academic library positions. As a Science Librarian, you would:

* Provide general and specialized research assistance, collection management, and library instruction to bioscience and/or engineering academic departments.
* Participate in collaborative projects, research teams, and grant activities related to bioscience and technology initiatives.
* Develops, manage, and promote Sciences Department digital content and services and provides support for Sciences Department digital content creators.
* Investigate, test, and recommend cutting-edge solutions for Web-delivered science, agriculture, and engineering content.
* Contributes digital imaging, metadata, and database creation and management expertise to Sciences Department projects and initiatives.
* Serves as liaison between the Sciences Department and the Digital Initiatives Department.

We're willing to hire brand new library school grads; this is more about a mindset and an attitude than specific work experience. Tenure-track position. Cover letter, CV, and 3 references to apply. Must hold an MLS from an ALA accredited institution.
