This isn’t FRBR-related, but I’m on the hiring committee and we want to get the announcement out everywhere we can. York University Libraries has created a new position and is looking for an Electronic Resources Librarian.
The Electronic Resources Librarian will provide leadership and expertise in the effective acquisition, management and promotion of electronic collections for the Libraries. Working closely with the Associate University Librarian for Collections, the successful candidate will monitor trends and developments in electronic resources, collaborate with subject specialist/liaison librarians to identify potential new acquisitions, work with publishers and vendors to coordinate trials, and solicit and evaluate user feedback. In collaboration with library colleagues, the incumbent will develop and implement a dynamic promotion plan for the York community that raises awareness of and increases use of electronic collections. He/she will also develop and implement qualitative assessment measures, analyze and disseminate usage data, and prepare reports to assist in timely collections decision-making. The incumbent will assist in troubleshooting, responding to user inquiries and following up on access and maintenance problem resolution. He/she will participate in library-wide committees and will represent the Libraries at regional, provincial and national consortia (e.g. OCUL), organizations and initiatives.
John Dupuis, head of the science library, posted the job ad too, and if you have any questions you should probably ask him so I can stay pure. For other York library blogs, see Planet YUL.
