Integrated Library System Administrator (Senior Information Technology Specialist) Hennepin County Library, Minnetonka, MN Closing Date/Time: Mon. 11/26/07 5:00 PM Central Time Salary: $48,235.20 - $72,009.60 annually Location: 12601 Ridgedale Drive, Minnetonka, Minnesota
This is a full-time position in the Integrated Library System (ILS) section of the Library's Resource Services Division. The ILS section manages, maintains, develops, supports, and provides training for the Library's integrated library system.
The Hennepin County Library System <http://www.hclib.org/> currently serves over 750,000 residents of suburban Hennepin County through 26 libraries, two Children's Readmobiles, Outreach services and extensive services on the web. Consistently rated as one of the top large public libraries in county, the Library is very heavily used with an annual circulation of over 13 million.
In May 2007, the Minnesota Legislature passed legislation that would allow the consolidation of Hennepin County Library and Minneapolis Public Library <http://www.mplib.org/> systems. The target date for merging the two systems, pending final approval, is January 1, 2008. The combined system would have 41 libraries (including the new Minneapolis Central Library) and would serve all of Hennepin County's 1.1 million residents. The combined collection would have more than 5 million items and represent over 1.2 million titles. Efforts to establish a fully integrated library system would begin upon consolidation. Complete merger <http://www.hclib.org/merger/> details are available on the Hennepin County Library website.
In 2002, Integrated Library Systems and Web Services staff began extensively customizing the Library's online catalog <https://catalog.hclib.org/ipac20/ipac.jsp?profile=elibrary> outside the confines of vendor support. The resulting integration of the catalog with the rest of the Library's web-based services has provided a model for successful in-house development of ILS features and functionality. In early 2008, ILS staff will develop a list of requirements for the system that will replace the current SirsiDynix Horizon system and initiate investigations into the alternatives with the goal of system replacement in 2010 or 2011.
Primary duties/responsibilities include: * Configure and maintain Integrated Library System software including acquisitions, cataloging, circulation, and serials control modules as well as the online catalog * Provide primary, high-level support for all aspects of integrated library system software including troubleshooting and resolution of complex problems; work with other IT staff and vendors to resolve problems; respond to service requests from library staff and customers * Plan, coordinate and implement ILS and ILS-related projects, serving as a team lead or project manager * Manage user accounts and ILS system security * Design and implement integrated library system reports and reporting tools to provide accurate, comprehensive, and consistent data to assist library management and decision making * Create custom reports and other tools for routine and non-routine database maintenance tasks using SQL and other reporting and database modification methods * Create and maintain procedures and documentation, including software configurations, for the ILS and related 3rd party applications * Plan for and implement system software upgrades
