Job: Academic Librarian

9/7/15 –  Academic Librarian
Northern Marianas College, Saipan, Northern Mariana Islands

Sarah P’s comments:  This is an opportunity only rarely posted.  It is much more common to see positions for USP in Fiji and/or the College of the Marshall Islands.  The pay is actually quite good for the region.  Make sure to ask whether housing is included.  Many years ago I interviewed for a public library position and it was not covered which made going there financially difficult.  FYI: their website was down when I was writing this post however that is common in the Pacific region, keep checking!  Here are some sites with info:
