This is a new, non-exempt, 20 hours per week position to help our library meet the steady increase in demand for resource sharing we have experienced in the previous three years. Responsibilities include processing, borrowing and lending requests through OCLC Worldshare and through the Camino resource-sharing network (based on a Worldshare product called Navigator) and responding to renewal requests for local material. As time and your skill set permit, you may perform other tasks such as copy cataloging, equipment inventorying, assisting with events, or processing course reserves. Must be able to work Monday through Friday on a daily basis during regular business hours.
YOU: are a library student, recent graduate, library paraworker, or holder of a certificate in library tech. You are a team-based person with hands-on Worldshare experience, you know what a MARC record is and what its major fields are, and you are comfortable with computers, the Web, business applications such as Word and Excel, and other software and equipment. You have an appreciation for customer service, are eager to learn and self-directed, have great problem-solving skills, and you have the judgment to know when to act independently and when to get more information. You are a good communicator, in writing and face-to-face, and you respect others and give them the benefit of the doubt (or as we like to call it, “most respectful interpretation”). You’re focused and reliable.
WE: are a team of library professionals, student workers, grad assistants, and temporary workers dedicated to excellent customer service and support for student learning. We are flexible innovators with strong esprit de corps and a passion for librarianship. We do fun things and do them well.
