Position Announcement: Automation & Cataloging Librarian, SUNY Potsdam Marion Blauvelt 16 Jan 2001 15:40 UTC

Automation and Cataloging Librarian
SUNY Potsdam Libraries (http://www.potsdam.edu/library.html) seek an
innovative, energetic and service-oriented librarian to work in a team
environment. The staff of the SUNY Potsdam Libraries (twelve library
faculty and eleven clerical assistants) work together in support of the
academic mission of the college. The Libraries serve the approximately
4,000 students in the School of Arts and Sciences, the School of
Education, and the Crane School of Music

Responsibilities:
The successful candidate will provide leadership to the College Libraries
in planning and policy recommendations for automation and cataloging
services. The College Libraries will be migrating in the near future to a
new SUNY-wide library management system (Ex Libris' Aleph).  The
Automation and Cataloging Librarian will play a key role in managing this
migration and in planning for the libraries' future technology needs.  In
addition, this librarian works with staff in technical services to
implement cataloging policy.  While most day-to-day cataloging is done by
clerical support staff, the Automation and Cataloging Librarian provides
guidance in that work and participates directly in cataloging materials
that offer special challenges (e.g. curriculum materials, music materials,
electronic resources). This librarian will also work closely with
Computing and Technology Services staff to address policies and procedures
for technical support for the College Libraries. All library faculty
participate in providing reference service, including some evening and
weekend hours. All library faculty participate in library governance
activities and are encouraged to become active on campus-wide committees.

Qualifications:
Required:
� ALA-accredited Master's degree;
� Experience in technical services;
� Knowledge of AACR2, MARC tagging, LC authorities and LC classification;
� Experience with OCLC systems and software;
� Knowledge of basic networking and PC platform issues;
� Effective oral and written communication skills;
� Strong interpersonal and organizational skills.

Preferred:
� Experience with web-based software;
� Affinity for new technologies;
� Experience cataloging electronic resources;
� Reference experience.

Salary and rank:
Upper 30's, Senior Assistant Librarian.  This is a tenure-track, 12-month
academic faculty position.  Criteria for continuing appointment (tenure),
established by the SUNY Board of Trustees, include: teaching
effectiveness, mastery of subject matter, continuing growth, university
service, and scholarly activity.

Application Deadline: Primary consideration will be given to applications
received before Feb. 15, 2001.
Preferred start date: July 1, 2001
Application: Submit letter of application, current resume, and
names/addresses/phone numbers of three professional references to: Marion

Potsdam, NY  13676 or fax to (315) 267-2744.

The State University of New York College at Potsdam is an equal
