The Boston University Pappas Law Library has an opening for the position of
Information Resources Management (IRM) Librarian (Grade 74). The Law Library
holds an extensive number of print and electronic resources including
purchased and licensed serials and electronic books. The collection currently
contains approximately 600,000 individual electronic titles and 240,000
print/microform titles. The IRM Librarian will play a key role in the
coordination and management of this complex and varied
content. The IRM Librarian will also play a key role in the
Library's continued transition from print to electronic resources.

  
Responsibilities:

  
Reporting to the Associate Director, the IRM Librarian provides leadership,
vision, and direction for information resources management. The IRM Librarian
monitors trends and best practices in academic library resource management,
assists in establishing standards for information resources management,
assesses whether standards are being met, and recommends and implements
changes to improve patron access to library resources. (40%)

  
The IRM Librarian coordinates all stages of the life-cycle of acquired
information resources: working closely with the Collection Development
Librarian to acquire new resources using best practices and state-of -the-art
tools, overseeing the efficient and complete deployment of newly acquired
information resources, coordinating metadata/cataloging activities to ensure
robust patron discovery, directing the use of link resolver, EZproxy and
related access tools, partnering with Access Services to resolve access issues
identified by staff or patrons, and overseeing the withdrawal of information
resources upon de-accession. (30%)

  
The IRM Librarian plays a central role in gathering and evaluating all
analytics associated with information resources management. (15%)

  
The IRM Librarian forges strong relationships with staff throughout the
Library and University and works to shape and improve access to information
resources for Library users. Representing the Law Library in university
library committees and at professional conferences and meetings, and
maintaining professional networks and collaborative relationships with other
libraries, the IRM Librarian remains abreast of changes affecting information
resources management and assumes an active role within the field. (15%)

  
Requirements:

  
Graduate degree from an ALA-accredited library school required, along with 3-5
years working with information resources management combined with a broad
understanding of technical services operations. Academic
library experience is required. A law degree can substitute
for a portion of the 3-5 years of library experience.

  
Project management experience and experience using an integrated library
system. Strong computer literacy and ability to work with a
multitude of library systems, databases and software. Previous experience in
coordinating information resources management or other technical services
tasks.

  
Strong interpersonal and communication skills (both written and
oral). Ability to work independently and collegially in a
complex, diverse, and rapidly changing environment.
Demonstrated ability to analyze issues and problems, evaluate possible
solutions, and implement best choices. Strong
organizational and planning skills with ability to prioritize, coordinate, and
perform tasks required.

  
Salary:

  
Commensurate with experience. Excellent benefits and professional development
funding.
