Academic Library Internships at James Madison University Libraries – Harrisonburg, VA

Blog - MLS - Wed, 29/04/2015 - 13:21

JMU Libraries & Educational Technologies (L&ET) is looking for two candidates currently enrolled or recently graduated from ALA-accredited Library and Information Science programs to take part in our Alternative Summer Break Summer Academic Library Internship Program. This four-week program will provide an opportunity for librarians at the beginning of their career to contribute to large-scale projects in a vibrant academic library setting, gaining practical professional experience in the process.

James Madison University is a public, comprehensive university of approximately 20,000 students located in the Shenandoah Valley two hours from Washington, D.C. The university has been ranked by U.S. News and World Report as the top-rated public regional master’s level university for seventeen consecutive years. The university places a strong emphasis on undergraduate research and offers 40 master’s degree programs and 8 doctoral programs.

The JMU Libraries are part of the Libraries and Educational Technologies Division. The libraries include Carrier Library with collections and services supporting the arts, humanities and social sciences, Rose Library, with collections and services supporting science, technology and health sciences; and the Music Library.

We invite candidates from diverse backgrounds who will contribute affirmatively and creatively to the university’s multicultural environment. Our goal is for our employees to reflect the rich mix of backgrounds, life experiences, cultures, perspectives and world views that is found within our university community.

Interns will work a total of 100 hours during a four-week period (25 hours per week) from June 1st to July 31st, 2015. Eighty hours will be devoted to completing one of the library projects listed below. The remaining 20 hours will be spent in activities that orient interns to the work culture of the JMU Libraries. This will include meetings with various library faculty and staff and attendance at library meetings. These positions are not eligible for benefits.

Duties and Responsibilities: Summer 2015 Project Descriptions:

Create online learning modules about L&ET to help orient new L&ET employees. You will develop skills in instructional design, user testing, and online content creation (such as video, games, writing, and design).

“Crowd-sourcing” RDA authority records? JMU wants YOU to help build an XML web service application for fast-tracking the creation of MARC authority records for faculty and students. Successful candidates will also gain hands-on experience with NACO, contribute code to the libsci community, and eke a publication out of it to boot.

Are you interested in helping students make the big leap from high school to college? Do you have a passion for teaching? Do you like to play with technology? Do you want to know more about student learning assessment? We need a student to help us craft information literacy content for new-to-college students that is built around ACRL’s recently adopted Framework for Information Literacy. This project will touch all parts of the learning cycle, from opportunity to learn to assessment of students.

Interested in gaining experience with collection development? The Reference Collection project is an opportunity to spend some time analyzing a current virtual and physical reference collection that spans multiple library locations on one campus. In addition, you will be asked to consider how current trends in reference material use and higher education might shape how this collection is developed to best meet the future needs of the university.

Qualifications: For applicants to be eligible, they should meet the following requirements:

  1. Must currently be enrolled (in good standing) or have graduated within the last 12 months from an ALA-accredited Master’s program in Library and/or Information Science
  2. Must be able to commit to spending four weeks on-site, in June and/or July 2015. Classroom preparation or other experience in one or more of the project areas is preferred.

Temporary Positions at the Library of Congress – Washington, DC

Blog - MLS - Wed, 29/04/2015 - 13:06

The U.S. Anglo Division has three projects that will be filled with temporary, Not To Exceed (NTE), 120 days noncompetitive positions that I wish to fill as soon as possible.  The pay will be at the GS9, Step 1 level which starts at $25.24 per hour.  We are seeking individuals who can work 40 hours per week for 120 days.  We may be able to accommodate a schedule of less than 40 hours per week.  The positions end on Sept. 30, 2015.

A description of the three projects follows:

Updating United Kingdom/Ireland (UKI) Exchange Partner Files:

The project would update the Exchange partner files in the UKI Section and allow the Library to take greater advantage of receiving desired materials at no cost from exchange partners.  The project would contact active UKI exchange partners in order to update their vendor records with addresses and contact names and find publications of interest to the Library. Inactive partners would be contacted as well in order to reestablish the partnerships.  If the organization was no longer interested or no longer in existence, the vendor records would be cancelled and we would update our database.  It applies to exchange of all materials, serials and monographs. The project requires good Internet searching skills.

Print Subscription Serials with Online Access (“One-offs”) Project:

Print subscription serials that include online access have been and continue to be one of the options offered by vendors—often it’s the only option— when subscribing/renewing print purchase serials. LC’s exploitation of this feature has been limited at best, primarily because of the work involved, i.e., the acquisitions specialist would have to negotiate the e-resource license with the vendor (or publisher), determine whether access is via IP address or username/password (if the latter, then additional complications arise), establish and maintain online access, and then insure end-user access through the ERMS. Additionally, there is no procedural documentation for this workflow.   The project involves working with a select number of LC’s current print plus online purchase serial subscriptions (ideally, subscriptions from a variety of different vendors would be included, e.g., Ebsco, Harrassowitz, Eastview, Cassalini). Working with appropriate staff, the NTE would assist in devising the most efficient workflow, taking into account differences between vendors, publishers, their options, their web interfaces, etc., and then compile draft procedural documentation that could eventually be used by acquisition specialists.

Model License Project:

Currently licensing for e-resources involves negotiation between LC’s Special Collections Coordinator and each individual vendor. This negotiation can sometimes be lengthy and complex, i.e., when disputed conditions or terms need to be resolved, sometimes with the aid of LC’s legal counsel.  A standard license, tailored to LC’s needs, which could be presented to any vendor that LC deals with would greatly simplify e-resource licensing, and is something to consider if licensing and other e-resource acquisitions and processing functions are to be distributed throughout ABA. The NTE would do background research on e-resource licensing, and model licenses and alternatives currently in use. Then, working with the Special Collections Coordinator and other appropriate staff, the NTE would assist in formulating a standard license that could be used by LC. Some of the resources that the NTE would commence with are indicated below:

CRL’s LibLicense:  http://liblicense.crl.edu/licensing-information/model-license/

OCUL (Ontario Council of University Libraries) model licenses: http://ocul.on.ca/collections/licenses

Marketplace & Licensing, ARL’s overview of e-resource licensing: http://www.arl.org/focus-areas/scholarly-communication/marketplace-licensing

SERU, NISO’s Shared Electronic Resource Understanding, an alternative to the e-resource license: http://www.niso.org/workrooms/seru/

Interested individuals should email or fax me their resume, along with a filled out OF306 (https://www.opm.gov/forms/Optional-forms/).  Please indicate the project you prefer or if you are willing to work on any of the projects.  No interviews are necessary.  Prospective employees will be qualified based upon their resume.

If individuals wish further information please contact me.
