    projects and initiate collaborative ventures. Qualifications: Graduate
    degree required, coupled with significant relevant experience in an
    academic research library or other academic environment; MLS degree from
    an ALA-accredited library school preferred. Significant supervisory
    experience, including management of staff, budget, and planning.
    Experience working in the field of digital libraries in a leadership role,
    and broad knowledge and understanding of current practices in digital
    libraries are highly desirable. Experience in analysis and design, and
    management of technical staff are highly desirable. Demonstrated ability
    to work in a collaborative environment is required. Salary and Benefits:
    Salary and rank are negotiable and competitive dependent upon
    qualifications and experience. This is a tenure track academic
    appointment, which includes eligibility for sabbatical leaves. Benefits
    include a university health care plan, TIAA/CREF retirement/annuity plan,
    group life insurance, and liberal vacation and sick leave. To apply, send
    letter of application, professional vita, and names, addresses, and phone
