JOB: Reclassification Technician, Backstage Library Works, San Mateo County Library System

Backstage Library Works will be working on site in San Mateo County to physically reclassify the county library’s collections from the Dewey classification system to a Bookstore-style Subject-based classification system. We are currently seeking technicians to complete the project.

During the past year, the San Mateo County Library System has reclassified their Dewey call numbers to Subject-based Classifications for each record in their library catalog. During the current phase of the project we will be applying labels generated from the records to the books they represent. As the project progresses the relabeled collections will be reorganized into their new orders across the various branches in the county. We anticipate that the project will begin Feb. 4 and last into May of this year.


Wages start at $11.50/hr, with Paid Time Off and benefits beginning after 2 months. Please send a copy of your resume and a cover letter by Monday, January 26, to Thomas Forsythe to apply. Applications without a cover letter will not be considered.
