Position: Map and Data Services Librarian (University of Illinois at Chicago)

Map and Data Services Librarian and Assistant Professor (University of Illinois at Chicago)
"The University of Illinois at Chicago Library seeks a dynamic and energetic librarian to provide reference, research consultation/user education services for cartographic material and social science data sets, as well as implementation of GIS applications within the library and the university community."
There sure seems to be a need for good GIS folks in Illinois, eh? Last week, I posted the newly available position at the University of Illinois Library at Urbana-Champaign, and now there is a similar opening in Chicago.

As this position's title suggests, the posting describes this position as a mixture between GIS, traditional cartographic materials, and data/numeric services. However, there does seem to be a strong focus on the social sciences.

Here are some snippets:
  • Works closely with primary users in a wide variety of academic areas including urban planning, history, earth sciences, public administration, sociology, political science, architecture, social work, education, public health.
  • Participates in collection development decisions for cartographic materials and social science data (maps, atlases, remote sensing images, geospatial data).
  • Participates in planning, design, and maintenance of web pages that include specific information about cartographic resources and GIS and social science data.
  • Creates local indexes (property listings, remote sensing products, aerial photography, etc.).
  • Works with other library units to assure consistent policies for the cataloging of maps, remote sensing imagery, aerial photographs, and data sets. Creates and reviews metadata for digital geospatial data and data sets, as needed.
Salary begins at $40,000, with faculty status.
