Oregon Library Job: Content Librarian

By

I’ve written before about the difference between the public perception of “library work” and the reality of working in a library.

One needs to do little more than read library job descriptions to get the point. Here is a recent job posting for a Content Librarian in Washington County (Oregon).

JOB #2010-141

Under the general supervision of the Library Automation Systems Supervisor, the Content Librarian creates, gathers, rewrites, plans, manages, and implements content for Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS). This unique position also writes and maintains WCCLS branding and content using current technology and communication tools such as social media and the WCCLS intranet and extranet.

Washington County Cooperative Library Services (WCCLS) provides central support and outreach services for the libraries that serve the people of Washington County, Oregon.

Additionally, the Content Librarian establishes, maintains, enhances, and expands WCCLS’ web presence and use of technology tools; provides application and network support to member library staff, WCCLS staff, and patrons; collaborates with the WCCLS public relations staff, Web Services Team, member library staff and outside vendors to achieve established goals.
