Colleagues,

Are you a passionate advocate for open access and open education? A shameless copyright geek with a penchant for reviewing publication agreements and educating people about fair use? Want to join an innovative team of digischol professionals who do great work and have a lot of fun while doing it? 

If so, please consider applying for the position of Scholarly Communications Librarian at Florida State University (details below). This position will be an integral part of FSU Libraries' digital scholarship program and continue a long tradition of fine work in the field of scholarly communication (on a beautiful campus that is brimming with ardent OA champions, no less).

Also, in case you're not familiar with Tallahassee, it is a fun, affordable city with mild winters and ready access to the white-sand beaches of Florida's Forgotten Coast. 

Happy to answer any questions you might have about the position. Thanks for your consideration, and happy holidays!

Best,

Devin Soper
