The Office of the Legislative Assembly (OLA) is seeking an experienced cataloguer to fill a PO1 Librarian vacancy (permanent position).
About the Office of the Legislative Assembly:
Headed by the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly, the Office of the Legislative Assembly provides procedural and administrative advice and support to the Legislative Assembly and its committees. The Office is a statutory body independent of the Executive but operates within the ACT public sector. Office staff are employed under the Public Sector Management Act 1994.
The Library provides services to two major client groups. Its primary clients include the 25 Members of the Legislative Assembly, their staff and committee staff. The Library's secondary client group includes ACT directorates and members of the ACT public sector. The Library is comprised of a small team of supportive, highly motivated individuals who work collaboratively and independently to continuously improve services.
About the Role:
Reporting to the Assembly Librarian, the PO1 Librarian is responsible for original and copy cataloguing, indexing press clippings, and managing the ILL service. The PO1 Librarian also provides reference and research support to the Library’s client groups and contributes to the fortnightly current awareness newsletter.
Skills and Experience:
The ideal candidate for this position will be an experienced cataloguer, comfortable with both copy and original cataloguing of primarily government publications in electronic format. While cataloguing and indexing comprise the bulk of the workload, this is an excellent opportunity for someone who likes working collaboratively and enjoys working at a variety of tasks.
Eligibility for professional membership of the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) or recognised tertiary qualifications in library & information studies or a related discipline.
