Search for E-Resource Strategist Begins
The Missouri State University Libraries invites individuals to apply for an important and exciting new position in our dynamic, forward-thinking library: E-Resource Strategist. Although MSU currently is under a university-wide hiring freeze, resulting in five open positions in the MSU Libraries being frozen, both President Smart and Provost Einhellig approved the launching of this search to fill this vital new position.
This will be a national search.

A Bachelor’s degree is required; a Master’s degree is preferred. At least one year of experience supporting the management and/or acquisition of electronic resources is required.
