    ILL, Circulation and Periodicals Librarian

    The Archabbey Library has a full-time opening for an ILL, Circulation and Periodicals Librarian. 

    Interlibrary Loan (ILL): Fill ILL requests from Archabbey Library patrons as well as requests from other libraries to borrow Archabbey Library materials. The ILL Librarian uses OCLC's online ILL management system, submits borrowing requests to other libraries, scans materials to make PDF files to be sent to patrons of other libraries, and keeps circulation records for all ILL loans. The ILL Librarian also serves as a document delivery specialist for remote Archabbey Library patrons (mostly Graduate Theology students), scanning library materials to make PDF files that can be delivered online. The ILL librarian also manages PALShare resource sharing among PALNI libraries, preparing books and DVDs for transit to other PALNI libraries and receiving returned material.

    Circulation: Maintains patron database in the library's automated online collection management system, adding and deleting patrons as needed and corresponding with library patrons about library accounts. Other functions include: inventory control for library holdings and correcting records as needed; setting up and maintaining course-reserve shelves; generating circulation reports; and staffing the Circulation Desk as needed.

    Periodicals: Manages day-to-day activities concerned with Archabbey Library's collection of magazines and journals. This includes: daily check-in and recording of books and magazines, collecting serials for bindery and maintaining records for serials costs, maintaining the display of current periodicals, and moving current periodicals to archives as needed. The Serials Librarian also helps patrons requiring assistance with the periodical collection.
