In case you know anyone who wants to move to Texas...
We have an opening for a new position of electronic services librarian
(includes 1/4 reference).

We're considering it an entry level position (Not because of the skills
required, but because the salary doesn't really pay for professional
experience. On the other hand, housing is inexpensive, so the salary really
is better than it might appear to those of you with a high cost of living :)
If you know someone who might be interested, tell them to feel free to
contact me with questions, such as "Where the heck is San Angelo?"
