This is a special posting -- and I ask that everyone forward it to qualified individuals. This is my former job and I have to say that working with the university faculty and library staff and faculty was a wonderful experience (but the 160 mile commute was taking it's toll on me after 4 years).
The serials and technical process staff are knowledgeable and an absolute joy to work with and supervise. The librarians are excellent individuals and really do have the end user's experience as a top priority and fully support the work of Technical Services in meeting TS goals.
SWOSU has some exciting challenges facing them in the future and any person (new or established in the profession) will find themselves in a welcoming environment. So why don't you apply for my old job -- and tell them that Adri sent you ;-)
