Hey, want to be a palapala'aina kahu puke??
(This is a map librarian, according to an online translation service.)
This tenure track faculty position has it all for the GIS/map enthusiast librarian. Responsibilities include public service responsiblities (assistance, promotion, instruction) and technical service (cataloging, collection development). The GIS components that are not listed here are server/database technologies and programming/scripting. However, if this position will be putting in substantial hours cataloging maps and GIS data (which I do not), there will not be sufficient time for server and desktop development.
And hey, it's in Hawaii... That's an exotic environment that would be difficult for many Americans in the continental U.S. to pass up.
Here are some snippets:
- "Manages and develops the map, aerial photograph, and geospatial data collections."
- "Provides reference service for maps, aerial photographs, geospatial data, and government documents"

For those applying, Pomaika`i!
