The primary duties include original and difficult copy cataloging, complex problem resolution and non-routine database maintenance of serials and other continuing resources representing a variety of formats, languages, subjects, and levels of difficulty. Cataloging is performed using OCLC and Innovative Interfaces for inclusion in the local system. Standards in use include AACR2, LCSH, and LC classification. Catalogers participate in the Program for Cooperative Cataloging (NACO and SACO). This is a tenure-track faculty position reporting to the Head of Serials Cataloging. A significant part of the responsibilities of the Serials Cataloger includes research/creative work and service, in keeping with the tenure standards of the University of Colorado at Boulder. Requirements: Master's degree from an ALA-accredited library school; knowledge of AACR2 and MARC bibliographic formats; familiarity with an automated cataloging system and local online catalog; excellent organizational and problem-solving skills; effective oral and written communication skills; reading knowledge of one modern European language; potential for research and scholarly/professional achievement.

Appointment and Salary: The successful candidate with demonstrated accomplishments in research and creative work will be appointed as a full-time (12 month) Assistant Professor on the tenure track.

The department hopes to strengthen its diversity and anticipates hiring at the assistant professor level, but applicants at all levels will be considered.
