Please pass along wide and far!  I'm happy to answer any questions!



The Library, Information and Technology Services (LITS) Division at Mount Holyoke College seeks an enthusiastic, creative, collegial, and service-oriented recent ALA-accredited-MLS graduate to help in the acquiring and managing of licensed and subscribed content for discovery and access. The new E-Resources and Serials Access Librarian’s position is intended to give an entry-level librarian the opportunity to quickly gain a broad and experience-based understanding of the diverse area of Discovery Services as well as to bring fresh ideas and new perspectives to LITS. To be successful in the small, dynamic, continuously metamorphosing Discovery Services Department, the incumbent will need to be able to learn new technologies with ease, enjoy solving puzzles and resolving discrepancies, not be afraid to ask questions, view mistakes as learning opportunities, and, while admiring the trees, never lose sight of the forest.


The successful candidate will report to and work closely with the E-Resources and Discovery Services Librarian, becoming responsible for a wide range of tasks and workflows in the Discovery Services Department, such as coordinating the acquisition, payment, renewal, activation, and cataloging of electronic resources, and print periodicals and serials. She or he will also work closely with Collection Development and Interlibrary Loan and have ample opportunity to apply her or his creative and innovative skill sets.
