The North American Serials Interest Group (NASIG) Core Competencies Task Force is developing a statement of core competencies for print serials management as an addendum to its statement of Core Competencies for Electronic Resources Librarians. As part of this work, the Task Force is seeking job descriptions from library personnel responsible for managing print serials. We would like to receive both positions with oversight responsibility over units managing print serials, as well as positions with hands-on responsibility for print management tasks such as check-in, claiming and cataloging. The results of the project will be shared broadly with the professional and educational community.
If you would be willing to share your job description with us, please email an electronic copy to me at firstname.lastname@example.org before January 31, 2014. We will make every effort not to use any personally identifiable information so please feel free to leave your name off the job description (or any other personal information). However, we would like to understand more about the institutional setting where you work. Please include demographic information such as type and size of institution (e.g. academic library, public library, etc.) and student FTE count or population served.
Many thanks in advance for your willingness to help us with our project!
