**Information Technology Librarian, Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine (ACOM)**
The library team at the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine (ACOM) is
searching for an Information Technology Librarian with a special interest in
using the latest technologies to build a new digital library from the ground
up. We seek someone who is passionate about service and
about delivering a dynamic digital collection, seamlessly and reliably, to our
community. We offer a supportive, team-
oriented library environment where discussion of innovative ideas and
experimentation with new ways of planning and implementing the library of the
future are a part of our culture.
Located in Dothan, Alabama, ACOM was established in May 2010 as a non-profit,
private institution in direct response to addressing the critical shortage of
primary care physicians in the state. In August 2013 the
inaugural class of 162 students began its studies, with full enrollment
projected for a total of 648 students across all four years of the curriculum
by 2016. We have a team of 60 basic science and clinical
faculty and staff located at the ACOM campus in Dothan.
ACOM's third- and fourth-year clinical curriculum will be delivered throughout
the state of Alabama and beyond at community-based hospitals and clinics
utilizing a network of over 650 physicians. The academic
division of the Houston County Healthcare Authority, ACOM is under the same
organizational umbrella as the major regional medical center, the Southeast
Alabama Medical Center (SAMC).
The primary focus of this current position is to spearhead the planning and
delivery of resources and services at the SAMC hospital
library. In fulfilling this objective,
the successful candidate will participate at the same level of engagement at
both the SAMC and the ACOM sites as we create a new digital library within a
growing academic medical center. Please see the following
