LOOKING FOR A CHANCE TO EXCEL? The GS-1410-12 vacancy at the Army Research Institute (ARI) for Behavioral and Social Sciences may be the one you are waiting for.  A new library, a small community of informed, intelligent researchers and analysts who want and need library service, agency leadership that values and supports the library and believes in training - what more could you want?    ARI, a part of the Army Deputy Chief of Staff, G1, is the Army's lead research laboratory for training, leader development, and personnel research.  To provide library services to this staff of highly educated professionals, ARI is seeking a proactive, energetic, service-oriented librarian with reference, automation, and searching experience.  Web-development experience or interest is desirable.  


Place yourself in a comfortable new facility in the center of Crystal City with easy access to shops, restaurants, fitness centers, the Metro and underground parking.  Government provided Metro checks make public transportation a plus.  A break room around the corner from the library has an ice machine, vending machines, refrigerators, microwave ovens, coffee makers, toaster, etc.   ARI has a pleasant working environment that allows you to set your own pace in managing the library. 


The collection includes over 5,000 books, journals, tapes, and documents focusing on psychology, personnel management, military leadership and training.  The SIRSI ILS was acquired ten years ago and has been partially implemented but needs the hand of a motivated librarian to bring out its full capabilities.  The library homepage on the intranet is also waiting for a creative and proactive librarian to make it the valuable tool it could be for the ARI staff.   This is a wonderful opportunity for a librarian who wants to show what good library service is all about.  For more information on ARI, go to  To search ARI's Sirsi OPAC, go to
