NC LIVE is seeking a Web and Database Development Librarian to lead the

With a reputation as North Carolina’s premier partner for statewide library

includes full-text article databases, ebooks and audio books, streaming
video, demographic and business data, as well as reference materials,

universities, the public libraries and State Library, and the state
university system), NC LIVE has enjoyed a track record of success using
entrepreneurial and innovative approaches that build on its collaborative
infrastructure. The organization acts as a conduit for partnership as its
Executive Director engages member libraries, state agencies, and other
groups with shared values and goals to deliver content and services that
support North Carolina’s libraries.

NC LIVE has an operating budget of more than $4.3 million and is funded
