Library Staff Needed to Serve on the Discovery and Access Implementation group and the Usability Team
Fabulous opportunity: Discovery and Access implementation
The Discovery and Access implementation group is looking for 8-10 people interested in helping us build the next system. We need a mix of specialists, including public, technical, and collection development experience as well as those with an interest in the user experience.
If you’re interested in public services – have we got committees for you! This year we’re doing a Combined Call for Committee Application (a.k.a. C3A) for the Discovery and Access, Usability and PSEC committees. You’ll be able to specify the number of committees you would like to serve on, and rank your choices, all in one convenient spot.
We will start reviewing the requests after June 22nd.

Are you looking to make a difference in CUL’s community? Are you interested in joining a great committee? Well, look no further!
The Mentoring Committee is seeking nominations for the 2011-2013 term. We anticipate having three openings for at least 1 academic and 1 non-academic spot.
