Hi, everyone. I'm on a search committee to hire an operations manager
for the University of Virginia digital repository. The job looks
pretty cool... we're a (mostly) open source shop, doing a lot of R&D
work, especially with the Fedora digital repository system. The
salary is pretty decent, but unfortunately we can't pay relocation
costs. However, we would be happy to consider recent graduates, and
there is lots of room for advancement around here. Plus, the weather
is beautiful, the winters are mild, and Charlottesville is a great
place to live! MLIS not required, CS degree not required, hacker
mentality definitely required.

So, if you or someone you know fits the bill, please apply or forward
this message.

If you have any questions about the position, feel free to email me.
