Job Description

A while back most of the people at my library had to work on a survey for the purpose of reevaluating job descriptions.  As a department head I was exempt, but I’m thinking listing my tasks might make a good exercise now in the wake of taking on a few more responsibilities in the wake of a co-workers maternity leave, a hiring freeze, and just generally being a gluttn for punishment.  So here we go, in the order I think of them:

Supervise a staff of 4 (1 full time, 3 part time)

Catalog all materials with the exceptions of fiction and a/v items.

Place and track orders for all materials

Investigate reports of defective/damaged a/v items and replace/repair them as necessary

withdraw materials

maintain catalog

run 2 patron workshops a month

run 2 video game events a month

keep statistics on items added/withdrawn each month

Make computer purchases

Maintain our computers and network

Act as liason between library and the consortia

Organize seasonal meetings of Western Mass tech services librarians

Serve on board of the MLA tech services section

Serve on consortia’s bibliographic and opac design committees

Serve on planning committee for the purpose of drafting a long-range plan

Oversee physical processing of materials

Oversee repairs of materials

Assist in crafting library policies
