I am excited about this position!  We've offloaded a lot of the more mundane, time-consuming tasks specific to statistics-gathering and technical services processing.  Instead, we envision a librarian who will embrace the flexibility this position brings and will enjoy identifying and implementing new and innovative technologies and other solutions for managing electronic resources.  This position resides in the Library Technology and Systems Department; take a look and feel free to contact me should you have any questions:  [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
