Sorry for the dearth of updates recently. Unfortunately, Laureen Burger, the SLIM-OR SCALA Web Master, is leaving the SLIM program and won’t be able to continue in her role. While this is definitely a loss for the SLIM program, it does present an opportunity for someone else to get involved. This is a great chance to both support your fellow students and to get some experience in a professional organization (and build up your library resume.)
Here’s the position description:
The Web Manager is responsible for design, maintenance and upkeep of
the SLIM-OR SCALA web presence, including the blog, the internal
collaboration wiki and any other web services SLIM-OR SCALA may use
(e.g. Flickr, Del.icio.us, LibraryThing, etc.) While not primarily
responsible for web content, the web manager will work with the
Communications Officer and any other collaborators to facilitate the
production of regular content for the SLIM-OR SCALA Blog.
HTML wizardry is not necessary, though some knowledge of using blog services, etc. will be helpful. (Of course, if there is a web developer out there who wants to set up something more involved, that would be great as well.)
The board will be going over candidates at our next meeting on January 31st. If you wish to be considered we ask that you submit a short statement by that time letting us know a bit about yourself and why you would be good for the position. (Send it to me at mbraunha[AT]emporia[DOT]edu.)
Thanks everybody. Look for information on some more SCALA activities
coming up soon!
