Hello everyone,


I supervise a library faculty position that oversees our media collections
and our information commons. Since the position is vacant, I recently joined
the list to see what kinds of topics are covered so that I could see how
valuable the list would be for department staff who are filling in while we
conduct our search for a replacement. I have been fascinated by the dialogue
and the very valuable information flow that occurs here and have asked the
Interim manager to join the list.


I would also like to take this opportunity to encourage any of you who might
be interested in reading more about our position and the unique opportunity
it offers for a new or mid-career individual to lead our libraries' efforts
to envision and implement the critical integration of our current media
resources with developing digital technologies to meet our users' current
and future needs. If your interest is piqued or if you know someone who may
be interested in pursuing this opportunity, more information is available on
our website at http://www.library.unlv.edu/employment.html. The full
announcement is at
http://www.higheredjobs.com/institution/details.cfm?JobCode=175212696

Thanks for your interest.


Wendy

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
