Come work with me! Electronic Resources/Systems Librarian

Note from Joe: This position has been filled. Thanks!

We’re hiring!

Carroll University in Waukesha, Wisconsin is looking for a full-time Electronic Resources/Systems Librarian. Details are on the university’s employment site.

About the Electronic Resources/Systems Librarian
The person in this position will be responsible for the overall management, access, and assessment of the library’s electronic resources, discovery layer, integrated library system, and proxy server. We use Sierra as our ILS and and implemented OCLC WDS for our discovery layer in Fall 2019. There will also be opportunities to help shape the library’s policies, programs, and outreach on topics such as open access and OER.

All professional librarian positions participate in the library’s liaison program for assigned subject areas (research assistance, information literacy sessions, and collection development) and share in teaching information literacy sessions for the first-year general education program. We have a budget for professional development. This usually gives each of the librarians the opportunity to attend/travel to one large national conference per year or multiple smaller regional/state conferences. Librarians are administrative staff. Publishing, presenting, and research are not required, but encouraged and supported during your work time.

  1. Hi Joe,

    I am currently in the Teacher Librarian program with Queens and was tasked with finding inspiring blogs. Although my program is focused on Elementary level I think most library’s regardless of demographic can be a “third place” the comments for that blog are closed which is why I am commenting here.

    While a student in grade school and later on in University I found myself gravitating towards the library to study and also relax with a book. Last year I moved to a new country and often found myself venturing to the local library. It’s peaceful bookshelves and resources for how to “find your people” on the community board helped me find my place in a new town. Even after I had found groups to join or places other places to discover I would often come back for the feeling of safety and calm that only seemed to come from exploring the displays before tucking into a corner and reading a book.

    I hope that even in an elementary school library I can create a space that students will want to come when they need that “third space”

    Thanks for the great links provided that further elaborated!
