THE POSITION:  The Systems Librarian is responsible for administering the day to day operations of MARINet and for the provision of core services by all Marin County consortium libraries who share a single library catalog. This position provides training to library staff on the ILS software and catalog, creates and maintains documentation and manuals for staff, and performs design and coding work for the web catalog’s interfaces.  The Systems Librarian also works closely with various MARINet committees and helps to select databases and related products for use by all members of the consortium.

  • Overall work experience must include two years of supervisory experience which may have been obtained in a position other than professional librarian.
