AMERICAN NUMISMATIC SOCIETY SEEKS LIBRARIAN

[The ANS is seeking candidates to fill the position of
retiring librarian Frank Campbell.  You wouldn't be reading
The E-Sylum if you didn't have a love and respect for
numismatic literature.  Most of us are hobbyists and may
lack the background required for such a position, but one
of you just might be the person ANS is looking for to fill
some very big shoes.  If you're up for a challenge in return
for spending your days knee-deep in numismatic literature
at one of the best such libraries in the world, please
contact the Society.  Similarly, if you know someone in
the library or information management fields, please
encourage them to apply. -Editor]

The American Numismatic Society seeks to appoint a Librarian
with effective date as soon as possible. The American
Numismatic Society maintains a museum and research institution
dedicated to numismatics of all periods and countries.  For
more information visit www.numismatics.org

The ANS Library is the leading numismatic library in North
America and one of the strongest in the world. The Librarian's
position is endowed. It serves the Society’s curatorial
staff, the annual Eric P. Newman Summer Seminar in numismatics,
scholars, and collectors with collections of books, articles,
catalogues, and primary documents covering the full range
of subjects relevant to the history of the world’s currencies
and medallic art. The Librarian’s duties include the continued
development of this distinctive collection and a range of
services to users. The Librarian will lead the move of the
collections to new quarters in the summer of 2008 and the
migration of its collection and catalog to conform to modern
standards. The Librarian reports to the Executive Director.

The Society seeks candidates with training in academic
disciplines relevant to its missions, a knowledge of
languages important for the library, an ability to work
collegially with the ANS curatorial staff and librarians
in the metropolitan region concerned with cognate subjects,
and a commitment to a high level of customized service to
the library’s users. A degree in library and/or information
science is preferred.
