EDUCAT readers,

I apologize for this message being slightly off-topic, but we would like to
reach cataloging/metadata educators and this list seems to be the best venue
for doing so. 

Simmons College is looking to hire another full-time faculty member (PhD or
equivalent) in the Information Organization/Metadata area. I thought that
perhaps some of you on this list might be interested in seeing our job
announcement (below).

Simmons is a great place to teach and we still place great value on the
information organization and cataloging components of our curriculum. Candy
Schwartz and I teach in this area and hope someone great will want to come
work with us.

If interested, please take a look at the information below which contains
contact information for the chair of the search committee. We will be at
ALISE and ALA, so contact us soon.
