Evening Circulation Coordinator - Skidmore College

Skidmore College
815 North Broadway
Saratoga Springs, NY 12866

The Evening Circulation Coordinator position oversees all evening operations of Scribner Library’s busy Circulation Department, the one team in the library that must always be functioning for the library to be open. The Department is heavily reliant on student workers (we
employ 25-30 each semester) and the evening supervision of that workforce is one of the primary responsibilities of the position. The ECC interacts with a variety of constituencies (faculty, staff, students, alums, guests, the public), applying a complex and evolving set of policies and guidelines, and providing access to an array of materials and various equipment related to the use of those materials. Scribner Library is a popular destination for students in the evenings and the ECC is key to creating a welcoming, inclusive environment for all who enter.

Primary Job Duties:

Because the ECC is often the only non-student employee present during the evenings, this position is responsible for front line responses related to building maintenance, housekeeping, safety, and security issues. The ECC is often the first person on the scene when a problem arises, whether it is a theft of library material, a student safety issue, or power outage. Therefore, this individual must be able to use judgment to apply library and campus policy to sometimes unpredictable situations.

The Evening Circulation Coordinator works closely with the Bursar's Office, Campus Safety, Scribner Library patrons, daytime and weekend Circulation staff, evening student workers, research help librarians and staff, Bibliographic Services team members for collections matters, and the Assistant to the Director for scheduling and facilities matters.

Education: Associate’s degree and/or equivalent experience 

Experience:

Physical Work Environment:

Required documents needed to apply:

Pay Range: Commensurate with experience

Apply at: http://jobs.skidmore.edu

unless exempted as a reasonable accommodation of a medical condition or sincerely religious belief or practice.
