Part time Cataloger

Library Connection, Inc.  Library Connection is seeking a part time cataloger (21 hours per week) for its Windsor office. The position pays $28 to $35 per hour, depending on experience, but does not provide health benefits. We are looking for someone who can support our Systems Librarian for Bibliographic Services by replacing temporary bibliographic records supplied by vendors and library staff with full MARC records from OCLC. Most vendor supplied temporary records are replaced with full OCLC records via batch processes run by OCLC. The part time cataloger will upgrade those records the batch processes cannot handle. Duties will also include merging duplicate records within our Sierra database. We are looking for a problem solver with a Masters Degree in Library Science, at least three years cataloging experience, who can do RDA, original, and copy cataloging for various formats in OCLC. Familiarity with Sierra is highly desirable. The 21 hours per week position would ideally consist of 3 seven hour days, one of which must be Tuesday or Wednesday.  However, as long as the Tuesday or Wednesday requirement is met, there is some flexibility in scheduling the remaining fourteen hours.  Candidates should submit their resume and a cover letter, along with three references to by November 20. The position becomes available January 4, 2016.
