Penrose Library invites applications from creative, collaborative librarians to join our small college library team. As Systems & Applications Librarian you will help to foster the intellectual engagement and scholarly practice of the Whitman community by supporting and optimizing the library’s systems and technologies. In this full-time, 12-month position you report to the Library Director and collaborate closely with colleagues in technical services, digital services, user services, and reference/instruction, as well as College IT. The central responsibilities for this job include supporting the integrated library system and discovery platform (ExLibris Alma/PrimoVE) and other library web presences. This librarian will further impact the library’s services by expanding and developing their skills in areas such as digital repository support and digital preservation planning and practice. Participation in Orbis Cascade Alliance teams and working groups provides a community of practice for systems work and professional development. The position is on-site; regular but limited work-from-home opportunities are possible.  Early career librarians are encouraged to apply.
