The Florida Academic Library Services Cooperative

invites applications and nominations for the

Director of E-Resources

The Florida Academic Library Services Cooperative (FALSC) invites applications and nominations for Director of E-Resources. This position oversees all aspects of e-resource licensing on behalf of the libraries of Florida's public colleges and universities, negotiating with vendors to leverage a multimillion dollar budget to meet the needs of 40 institutions while facilitating the best possible use of state funds. In select cases, the Director also works with the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida.


Complete information is available in the Search Profile at http://myersmcrae.com/skins/userfiles/files/FALSC-E-Res4.pdf.


THE OPPORTUNITY - The Florida Academic Library Services Cooperative (FALSC) provides services, support, and resources for the state's public, post-secondary academic libraries. Established by statue, it is part of the Florida Virtual Campus (FLVC) and is administered by the University of West Florida (UWF) Innovation Institute.


For the library professional, FALSC offers great opportunity for leadership and growth:



  • Join a forward-thinking team focused on service and innovation

  • Contribute to the success of 40 colleges and universities, more than 150 campus libraries, and nearly 1.3 million students, faculty, and staff

  • Contribute to your field on both the national and international levels through participation in organizations such as the International Coalition of Library Consortia


For member libraries, FALSC provides:



  • A state-of-the-art integrated library system (ILS) along with a shared catalog and a statewide collection of online journals, e-books, and other e-resources

  • Support for open educational resources and digital collections

  • In-person and online training, professional development, and consultation for library staff

  • A statewide Help Desk offering support to staff and students


This is an exciting time to join FALSC, as the organization and member libraries are transitioning to a next-generation ILS. This multi-year effort marks the largest transition to an integrated academic library catalog/discovery system in Florida's history.


FALSC and its predecessor organizations have worked with postsecondary libraries for more than 30 years. Though consortial in nature, FALSC is not a true library consortium. It is advised rather than directed by institutions through a Members Council on Library Services. FALSC's success, however, is ultimately determined by the value of its work to the libraries it serves.


FALSC has offices in Tallahassee and Gainesville, two college and university towns situated in the green, forested landscape of northern Florida, and works with UWF administrators in Pensacola.


For more information on the organization, visit FALSC.org.


THE POSITION - Reporting directly to the Executive Director of FALSC, the Director of E-Resources leads the E-Resources workgroup, with the option to work from Gainesville or Tallahassee. The Director supervises three Statewide Program Assistant Directors and an Administrative Specialist.


Through a process of information gathering, data analysis, and market research, the Director develops strategies for the negotiation of multimillion dollar packages of online research content. This administrator oversees the FALSC budget for e-resources licensed to support the teaching, learning, and research needs of the Florida State University System (SUS) and Florida College System FCS).


Working with confidential pricing and contractual data, the Director is responsible for meeting the requirements and procedures for approval, payment, and processing of vendors' invoices and/or distribution of documents to vendors. The Director is responsible for negotiating pricing with vendors to ensure that centralized purchasing of licensed content maximizes savings to the state. This responsibility includes negotiating the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and other e-journal packages that the SUS institutions pay for individually, as well as for an expanded group of institutions that currently includes nine of the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida (ICUF) and two of the FCS. In addition to ensuring that annual renewals are done accurately and in a timely manner, this administrator handles the revenue generated by this activity.


The Director is responsible for the development and implementation of policies related to primary services and products, as well as the communication of those policies to library affiliates and liaisons. The Director interprets and applies state and local purchasing policies. This administrator also works with the Office of General Counsel to establish the legal framework for licensing activities at FALSC, such as developing and updating the Guidelines for the Licensing of E-resources and Memorandum of Understanding for use with libraries outside the SUS and FCS.


The Director has daily contact with librarians throughout the SUS and FCS regarding e-resources and serves as the FLVC liaison to statewide SUS and FCS library committees concerned with the topics.


Additional Responsibilities



  • Manages assigned staff, including participation in the hiring process for workgroup positions, planning and approval of workloads, preparation and completion of performance evaluations and improvement plans, and management of overall staff performance.

  • Performs e-resource licensing and negotiation for centrally funded content by providing leadership in the management, evaluation, and licensing of state-funded databases subscribed to by FALSC; manages the e-resources budget on behalf of the SUS and the FCS; and oversees additional group licensing activities for the FCS and SUS.

  • Works with the University of West Florida's Offices of General Counsel and Procurement to ensure state-wide adherence to Florida state law and best practices in content acquisition.

  • Implements and manages the legislatively mandated FLA-PASS (Florida Library Access â€" Pass for Accelerated Secondary Students) Program, which provides access to FALSC funded e-resources to public high school students in accelerated programs and coordinates FLA-PASS communication with the State Department of Education.

  • Performs e-resource licensing and negotiation for content funded by individual libraries by negotiating contracts for e-journal packages and other databases shared by the libraries of the institutions of the State University System and other participating college and university libraries.

  • Manages the cost-recovery of contract negotiation and administration fees paid by ICUF institutions.

  • Maintains an information resource center of FLVC negotiated contracts and licensing information on the FLVC secure website for SUS and participating ICUF and FCS libraries.

  • Leads and coordinates expanded collaborative licensing activities with the FCS and the ICUF.

  • Attends the annual ICUF and FCS Collection Development Meetings.

  • Maintains effective communications with appropriate FALSC staff and effective working relationships to ensure the success of the organizational processes and projects.


Some evening and weekend work may be required.


QUALIFICATIONS


Minimum requirements are a master's degree in an appropriate area of specialization and six years of appropriate experience; or a bachelor's degree in an appropriate area of specialization and eight years of appropriate experience.

  • Contribute to the success of 40 colleges and universities, more than 150 campus libraries, and nearly 1.3 million students, faculty, and staff.

  • Contribute to your field on both the national and international levels through participation in organizations such as the International Coalition of Library Consortia.


For member libraries, FALSC provides:



  • A state-of-the-art integrated library system (ILS) along with a shared catalog and a statewide collection of online journals, e-books, and other e-resources

  • Support for open educational resources and digital collections

  • In-person and online training, professional development, and consultation for library staff

  • A statewide Help Desk offering support to staff and students


This is an exciting time to join FALSC, as the organization and member libraries are transitioning to a next-generation ILS. This multi-year effort marks the largest transition to an integrated academic library catalog/discovery system in Florida's history.


FALSC and its predecessor organizations have worked with postsecondary libraries for more than 30 years. Though consortial in nature, FALSC is not a true library consortium. It is advised rather than directed by institutions through a Members Council on Library Services. FALSC's success, however, is ultimately determined by the value of its work to the libraries it serves.


FALSC has offices in Tallahassee and Gainesville, two college and university towns situated in the green, forested landscape of northern Florida, and works with UWF administrators in Pensacola.

THE POSITION - The Director of Digital Services and Open Educational Resources (OER) leads the Digital Services workgroup, based in FALSC's Gainesville office, and reports directly to the organization's Executive Director. The Director is responsible for setting strategic direction for all digital services, and plans, develops, and directs work related to digital services and OER.


Through a process of information gathering, data analysis, and market research, the Director creates strategies for the preservation and dissemination of digital archival materials, evaluates the feasibility of implementing new versions of digital platforms, and provides recommendations for the use and distribution of open-access textbooks and open educational resources.


Digital services and applications under the Director's oversight include the statewide digital library platform Islandora, Florida Online Journals (Florida OJ), Archon/ArchivesSpace, the Florida Digital Archive (FDA) and Dark Archive in the Sunshine State (DAITSS), and the Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETD) program.


In regards to OER, the administrator works collaboratively with the Distance Learning and Student Services (DLSS) division of FLVC to develop services and programs promoting the use and proliferation of open-access textbooks and open educational resources at Florida's public colleges and universities. The Director evaluates the options for successful implementation of OER materials as well as the potential cost involved.


The Director also is responsible for the development and implementation of policies related to the FALSC's primary services and products and the communication of those policies to library affiliates and liaisons.


The Director works closely with librarians throughout the State University System (SUS) and Florida College System (FCS) regarding digital services, and serves as the organizational liaison to statewide SUS and FCS library committees concerned with these topics.
