6/6/15 – Telecommuting Librarian Jobs
Sarah P’s comments: Along with international positions I also follow the development of virtual library jobs and recently came across FlexJobs which lists telecommuting librarian positions. The catch is this site costs money. The question is – is it worth it? FlexJobs claims to weed out the junk offers and to only list ‘real’ positions. The reviews are fairly positive. Here is a link to an article which discusses pros and cons and the costs. If anyone tries this out please post a comment so others can know whether this site is worth the investment.
Currently on the list is:
Supervisory Librarian – Travel is required for the full-time and telework eligible job. Will plan and oversee library digital services, perform as a subject matter expert, and establish partnerships. Prior library science education and professional experience is needed.
Librarian – Part-time remote librarian is needed to build a digital library. Will curate online and printed content, act as go-to person for research and information searches, and make book recommendations & purchases. 5-10 hours/week to start. Work from home.
Virtual Cataloguer – Cataloger will oversee the researching and cataloging of resources and information. MLS and 3+ years’ library cataloging experience required. Must have experience with OCLC, AACR2, & LC classifications. Remote with full-time / part-time options.
