I have written this before, but this time I really mean it when I say that this sounds like a super-exciting position. I especially like the way that it blends print cartographic materials and GIS data/skills. Furthermore, this position is within the Social Sciences & Humanities Library, which is where my strongest mapping interests lie...
And it is in San Diego. So convenient for the ESRI conference each year, and the chance to live with the happy munchkin people of California is always fun. Just don't try to stand in one place for too long or the Earth will move you.
Here is a snippet:
Primary duties include providing reference and research consultation for cartographic materials, participating in outreach and user education programs related to maps and geospatial data, building and developing map and geospatial data collections, developing map collection web pages, and collaborating with the GIS Coordinator to support GIS services and to better integrate GIS skills into instruction and learning campus-wide. This position will also consult across the UCSD Libraries regarding current and future map collection and service needs, and work together with other University of California map librarians on collaborative purchase and cataloging projects.The salary of $41,376 - $53,676 seems OK. Similar to a position I posted earlier, the cost of living in San Diego can be so astronomical and I am uncertain how well this salary will adjust for that cost of living. Librarianship will always be a labor of love...and I do indeed love it.
