Virtual Services Librarian!

August 4, 2014

I came back from maternity leave today and stepped into a shiny new position at my library – Virtual Services Librarian. I’m incredibly excited, and I’m looking forward to my new duties.

  • all the awesome Adult Services reference and collection development stuff I already did;
  • designing and contributing to the library’s web presence through social media outlets;
  • creating and monitoring of the library gateway/portal page inside our library software platform;
  • monitoring and providing usage statistics for library website, social media outlets, subscription databases and eBooks;
  • communicating with appropriate staff at the library and consortium level;
  • contributing to the library’s marketing plan regarding online services and electronic media;
  • providing select programming and classes in social media, online resources, library databases and eBooks (and a Games for Grownups program starting in September); and
  • participation in collection development in the areas of eBooks, databases and online resources.

There’s a lot of cool stuff – like a brand new website that will hopefully go live to the public later this month, the gaming program, social media management, and all the glorious statistics.  I’m making the personal/professional resolution to write here more, as well, to not only showcase what I’m working on but also to develop my professional voice. Because I have one of those now.
