Not developing from scratch, mind you.

This position will be working closely with the other position posted for
Web Services Developer, the rest of the Web Services and Digital Projects
teams already at the BPL, and the staffs of other Massachusetts libraries
participating the Digital Commonwealth project.

Don't you worry about us, Roy. ;-)
