Geographic Information Systems Specialist
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library seeks applications for
a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Specialist. The
ongoing "spatial turn" in a wide array of disciplines, with its increasing
attention on the impacts and meanings of geographical space, means that
scholars in fields which have not historically used geospatial analysis tools
are discovering how geographic visualization can assist in examining
relationship and causality, uncovering patterns, and making
predictions. GIS users on the UIUC campus are also creating
data that falls under the campus's commitment to research data
management. The GIS Specialist will play a critical role in
the development, growth and stability of the Library's GIS program.

coordination with the Numeric and Spatial Data Librarian and the Map
Librarian, will promote the use of geospatial data and methodologies in
instruction and research, consulting with and assisting a campus-wide spectrum
of users with a broad variety of needs, interests, and
abilities. The GIS Specialist will have interests in all
facets of a geospatial data access program--hardware, software, data and user
services--and the ability to support and move forward the Library's GIS
endeavors in all areas.

Qualifications: Required: Masters with a
concentration in GIS; or a graduate-level or post-baccalaureate GIS
certificate; or a Bachelors with a concentration in GIS plus three years of
