4/30/14 – Technical Services Librarian
American University of Sharjah, United Arab Emirates
As part of the Technology and Technical Services Department, the successful candidate will manage technical services in collaboration with other professional staff to achieve the library’s mission and goals. Areas of responsibility include: day-to-day management of technical services staff and processes, database maintenance, cataloging, technical processing, as well as working with vendors such as OCLC and Backstage.
Established in 1997, the university consists of four Schools and Colleges: Architecture, Art and Design, Business and Management, Engineering, and Arts and Sciences and offers undergraduate and graduate degrees to 5000 students from 80 different countries
Sarah P’s comments: AUS is one of the more reputable institutions in the UAE. Daphne Flanagan was previously a librarian with the Higher Colleges of Technology and had been in the region for quite a few years. Interesting to note that this position has only been listed on IFLAjobs and that the university also advertised for a Web Services librarian in March.
