Comic Book Jobs: Research Librarian

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials,

BookwormHeads up, you decimals of Dewey! Virginia Commonwealth University is looking for an Undergraduate Research Librarian, on their Richmond, Va campus. The starting salary is a nice $45,000/year, which is steady college money.

The VCU Libraries, "one of Virginia’s outstanding research library systems, advances the University’s teaching, research, service, and patient care mission with holdings exceeding 2.3 million volumes, 61,000 serials, 500,000 e-books, and nationally prominent collections in the health and biological sciences, social work, the arts, the history of medicine, and comic and book arts."

Ah, yes, the "comic and book arts." It all sounds so Dark Ages.

There are a lot of academic responsibilities as you might imagine and a ton of qualifications - hoops you'll have to jump through. You won't be sitting around all day reading old Krazy Kat strips.

But the only important thing to remember if you're interested is that they start looking at applications on May 1, so get going.

Good luck, job seekers!
