Library Coordinator I
Positions provide professional level coordination for collection, research, cataloging, preservation, reference, or public services within UF libraries. Positions serve as unit liaisons to campus or other library departments, and they represent their unit or collections to campus and the public. These positions may also serve as technical or functional experts and internal consultants to other library personnel and, as such, raise the capacity of the library to provide services. These roles typically require professional-level technical expertise in library or information management systems, advanced subject matter expertise, or proficiency in non-English languages. Level I positions work with more direct guidance and less discretion or have responsibility for projects of limited scope and complexity.
