Jobs: Telecommuting Librarian Positions

6/6/15 – Telecommuting Librarian Jobs
FlexJobs, USA

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.
