Job: Digital Records Manager

2.22.17 –  Digital Records Manager
American University in Cairo, Egypt
Sarah P’s comments:  Cairo is a vibrant, crazy, old yet new city.  American Universities do tend to be more established and reputable than some of the new start-up campuses. For new librarians, they do state that they are open for applications from ‘early career applicants’ with relevant experience. However, I would do some careful research as Egypt is in a particularly vulnerable position at the moment. Many long-term expat residents have left and AUC currently has 105 positions listed which is a sobering number.

 
Company Description:
Founded in 1919, AUC moved to a new 270-acre state-of-the-art campus in New Cairo in 2008. The University also operates in its historic downtown facilities, offering cultural events, graduate classes, and continuing education. Student housing is available in New Cairo. Among the premier universities in the region, AUC is Middle States accredited; its Engineering programs are accredited by ABET, its Chemistry program is accredited by the Canadian Society for Chemistry, and the School of Business is accredited by AACSB, AMBA and EQUIS. The AUC Libraries contain the largest English-language research collection in the region and are an active and integral part of the University’s pursuit of excellence in all academic and scholarly programs. AUC is an English-medium institution; eighty-five percent of the students are Egyptian and the rest include students from nearly ninety countries, principally from the Middle East, Africa and North America. Faculty salary and rank are based on qualifications and professional experience. According to AUC policies and procedures, all faculty are entitled to generous benefits.
Job Description:
The Libraries and Learning Technologies invite applications for a fixed term contract (two years renewable) position at the Instructor level beginning in Fall 2017. The search committee is eager to review applications of individuals with demonstrated excellence in records management, and an interest in living and working in the Middle East.
The Digital Records Manager will address the challenges of AUC’s hybrid information environment, providing leadership within the AUC Records Management unit to support the university in transitioning to an electronic information environment. The position holder will work to ensure that records and corporate legal, financial and other information (in all formats including paper documentation) are managed according to best practices and standards: retrieved when needed (for legal, financial and operational needs), and preserved or disposed of as appropriate, for the benefit and protection of the University, including playing a key role in identifying and selecting systems for email management and other systems. The position holder will oversee AUC Records Management staff and storage areas and assure the efficient running of the operation and best use of space and resources. He/she will also seek opportunities to provide educational offerings beyond the AUC community via classes and workshops.
Requirements:
MLS or equivalent is required at time of appointment. While early career professionals are invited to apply, applicants should have experience in a records management setting including supervisory responsibilities.
Additional Information:
Position is open until filled.
Application Instructions:
All applicants must submit the following documents online:

  1. a) a current resume or CV; b) a letter of interest; c) a statement of teaching philosophy; d) a completed AUC Personnel Information Form (PIF); e) Please ask three referees familiar with your professional background to send reference letters directly to lltjob@aucegypt.edu.

For more information, e-mail Mr. Philip Croom, (pcroom@aucegypt.edu); Ms. Sahar Sobeih, Assistant Dean, (sahar_s@aucegypt.edu) or visit the department’s website at http://schools.aucegypt.edu/library/Pages/default.aspx

11.4.16 –  Liaison Librarian

Job: Library Director

10.31.16 – Library Director
St. Matthew’s University, Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands
Sarah P’s comments:  Here is another Caribbean medical librarian position.  For those interested in these kind of positions please read yesterday’s post for general information. Specific to this position, according to my notes as well as e-mails from other librarians,  this position was originally advertised in the spring as a tenure-track position, then removed and re-posted in June as a non-tenure track position (maybe the original was an error?).  They did interview but apparently were unsuccessful and have now just re-listed the position.  St. Matthew’s is not one of the top-tier medical schools however there is some talk of working with or merging with the other schools which might improve their position. St. Matthew’s is owned by R3 Education who also owns Saba University School of Medicine and the Medical University of the Americas.
This could be a good break-in experience for someone who has some health sciences experience who wishes to go international and gain more experience, however it could be a challenging position as budget is usually an issue with for-profit schools.  Also, the Caymans Islands is an undeniably beautiful location but also a very expensive place to live so make sure to check cost-of-living before accepting.
 
Position Description:
St. Matthew’s University (SMU) seeks applications for the position of Library Director.
The St. Matthew’s University Library houses computer terminals, individual study carrels, a copy/print room, and small group study areas. In addition, students have access to an extensive selection of journals and textbooks, as well as hundreds of online full-text medical journals.
The mission of SMU is to provide an outstanding medical and veterinary education curriculum to a dedicated group of students from the United States, Canada, the Cayman Islands, and many other countries around the world.  The library staff works with students to enhance self-directed learning and promote academic excellence.   More information about SMU can be found at www.stmatthews.edu.
Responsibilities:

  • Schedule and manage library staff;
  • Manage and provide library services (collection development, cataloging, claiming, document retrieval, research);
  • Participate in the Principles of Research and Evidence Based Medicine course;
  • Ensure compliance with library policies and procedures; and
  • Market and promote library services to students and faculty.

Preferred Qualifications of Candidates:

  • Master’s degree in library and information science.
  • At least one year’s experience as a professional librarian in a medical library setting.
  • Good communication and oral skills with preference for a candidate that can also teach a short course regarding research and/or informatics.
  • Supervisory experience.

Salary and Benefits:
Salary is competitive based on qualifications and experience. We also offer competitive health and retirement benefits.
Application Details and Deadline:
The position of Library Director will be open soon and applications will be accepted until a suitable candidate is selected.   Interested candidates should e-mail a curriculum vitae and cover letter, with salary requirements to hr@stmatthews.edu or send via mail to:

Confidential, Caribbean Netherlands
Sarah P’s comments: Name withheld – why the secrecy?  I believe this position is with one of two medical schools located in the Caribbean Netherlands.  One is Saba University School of Medicine, a top-tier choice.  Or it could be St. James School of Medicine, who just consolidated their Bonaire campus into their St. Vincent campus.
Caribbean medical library positions are posted quite regularly if anyone has any interest in medical library positions in nice places.  The question is about reputation.  Here’s an article discusses the ranking of the Caribbean medical schools.
