I work for the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga and you can too! That’s right, we’re hiring TWO librarians this summer! Now, I realize that I’m not much of a draw, but you’ll also be working with Jason Griffey, Colleen Harris, Virginia Cairns, Caitlin Shanley, Beverly Kutz, and lots of other librarians that I guarantee you’ve seen at a conference or two. Oh yeah, and thanks to our kick-ass dean we have a LEED certified library currently under construction, and it’s always fun to work in a new library, right!? Want more? Check out our wiki for org charts, meeting minutes, statistics, surveys, and more (we’re as transparent and open as is legally possible).
Okay, so you may be thinking, “Chattanooga, Tennessee? But I have all my teeth and I don’t play the banjo!” Just stop. Seriously, cut it out. Chattanooga is routinely ranked as one of the most livable cities in the U.S.. Rising home values, the fastest internet in the country, major economic investment, a nationally renowned art scene, and an international mecca for hiking, climbing, biking, and caving all contribute to a seriously modern and progressive city; it’s what the Grey Lady calls an “undiscovered gem.“
Anyway, here are the postings:
The University of Tennessee, Chattanooga’s Lupton Library invites applications from energetic, intellectually curious, and student-centered librarians to fill two, tenure-track vacancies on our team. This dynamic duo will lead the Library’s further development in electronic resources access and discovery.
Electronic Resources and Serials LibrarianThe Electronic Resources and Serials Librarian ensures optimal and accurate access to subscription resources in all formats, including databases, electronic journals and books, print journals and other continuations.
Digital Integration LibrarianThe Digital Integration Librarian implements public facing digital tools and services, such as link resolvers, that connect electronic and other library resources for patrons.
A review of applications will begin on July 5, 2011 and will continue until the positions are filled. Interested applicants should submit 1) a letter of interest, 2) a current CV, and 3) the names, addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses of three references including the professional relationship of each reference to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Come on, you know you want to…
