Hi folks,

This posting is still open. We are a new organization and donít have an
active website right now, so if you were interested in it but wondering who
we were, hereís more background information about the Gates Archive:

Gates Archive was formed in 2011 Ė we are capturing the personal and
philanthropic archival collections of the Gates Family (such as the
personal archives and the records of the Bill and Melinda Gates
Foundation).

A personal note about the archive Ė I moved from Chapel Hill (UNC) back to
the Pacific Northwest after several years at academic libraries. I have
been here for a little over a year and am amazed at how a program
management focus and a great organizational culture has created a unique
and special place to work. We are a new organization, but with this
position posting, we are moving into the next phase. I am very excited
about this job and think it will be a great opportunity for the right
person.

If you have any questions about the posting, donít hesitate to get in
touch. Iíd be more than happy to talk or email in greater length.
Best,

Erin O'Meara
