Librarian/Library Staff in NC (or elsewhere on east coast)
September 2, 2010 6:14 PM

In my last professional librarian position, I served as Humanities Librarian at Florida State University from June 2006-January 2009, where my responsibilities were split between public services and collection development. For the latter, I was subject specialist for the Religion, Classics, English, Theatre, Philosophy, and Modern Languages departments, organizing budgets, selecting materials, and keeping in close contact with faculty and graduate students in those areas. For the former, I worked regular shifts at the reference/circulation desk and on virtual reference, did instruction sessions for Freshman Experience classes as well as undergrad and grad classes in my assigned departments, used social media to publicize library services and programs, and coordinated book groups and other programs for the library.

I moved to NC in early 2009 but haven't been able to find a job in a library since. I currently work on web database management for Duke University, coordinating an international organization's website and databases, doing tech support/customer services, and managing communications to members. I do have a little bit of a techie bent and have been co-chair of the ALA RUSA MARS/RSS Virtual Reference Committee since 2008.

In the past, I've worked in special collections libraries, a music library, and other academic libraries, but would be happy working in any kind of library, especially in a position working with people on programs/public services. Or doing something similar in a non-library capacity would be cool too.

I'm happy to email my resume to anyone who's interested. Thanks!
