I'm very excited about this position. The developer will work with a very
small team (and me) involved with making all of the Museum's varied
collections available in new and better ways, and with preserving our
digital assets.

Applications are through the email in the posting, but if you have
questions about the nature of the position, environment, team, and work,
feel free to contact me off-list. I can easily imagine someone from the
code4lib community here.

[Apologies for being a klutz in selecting 'Employer' on the job posting
form and not noticing that the suggestion I accepted was (a) wrong [not
seeing the extra words that were out of view to the right] and (b) appended
into the job title to create the subject for the posting email. Yikes. It's
fixed now: http://jobs.code4lib.org/job/26044/ ]
