Overview: A current organizational priority at TSCPL is the development of a Virtual Branch to serve library users online. The Virtual Branch & Services Manager will provide vision and leadership in designing, bringing online, and supporting the Virtual Branch, bringing ideas to the table with a high “wow, cool, nobody else is doing this!” factor. The Virtual Branch & Services Manager will lead a highly skilled cross-discipline staff in using new technologies to translate traditional library services into a virtual, Library 2.0 format and provide innovative virtual library services to our community, continuing a TSCPL tradition of exemplary customer service.
This job reminds me of my old job at SJCPL BUT it also manages the whole IT department!
The ideal candidate will demonstrate
– working knowledge of current information technology developments and the ability to anticipate IT trends as they apply to traditional library services
– knowledge of trends and issues related to virtual library services, programs and collections (including but not limited to blogs, wikis, online gaming, podcasting, and RSS).
An Innovator. Trendspotter. Manager. Wowza!
