The E-Learning Librarian will lead collaborative efforts to explore, identify, assess, implement and provide training for emerging technologies in support of the University's teaching, learning, and research. The Librarian is responsible for all operations of the E-Learning Commons including assisting users; hiring, training, and evaluating personnel, troubleshooting hardware and software problems; and scheduling facility use. The E-Learning Librarian will work with faculty and students to explore library resources and apply innovative multimedia technologies to their work. The Commons will provide services that include assistance with strategies for management of scholarly and personal digital assets; preparation of interactive tutorials and course modules; and development of multimedia projects.
The E-Learning Librarian will routinely monitor trends in emerging technologies and identify possible uses in library services. As appropriate, the E-Learning Librarian will provide training in these new technologies for library staff as well as the campus community. In collaboration with other library staff, the E-learning Librarian must be proactive in selectively and strategically implementing and marketing emerging technologies that best match our users' needs and preferences. The E-Learning Librarian will work collaboratively with library staff to provide ongoing usability testing and redesign of user interfaces to library services. The Librarian will also collaborate with other campus units offering similar services.
