The ACRL Instruction Section (IS) is seeking applicants for four administrator positions: Newsletter Editor, Web Site Administrator, Publication Editor, and Social Media Coordinator. All positions are voluntary unpaid appointments. Deadline to apply is February 15, 2022.
Social Media Coordinator
The IS Social Media Coordinator serves a two-year term. The Social Media Coordinator has an appointment as a member of the Communication Committee and, as such, participates in the work of that committee throughout the year. The Social Media Coordinator works closely with the IS Website Administrators and also works under the general direction of the IS Executive Committee and in consultation with the IS Advisory Committee.
Website Administrator (2 positions)
Website Administrators serve a two-year term and are responsible for developing and maintaining the IS web site under the direction of the IS Executive Committee, in consultation with the IS Advisory Council and the IS Communication Committee. The IS web site provides access to information about the Section’s structure, committees, reports, meetings, programs, awards, news, projects, publications, and activities.
The IS Web Site Co-Administrators are members of the Communication Committee and non-voting, ex-officio members of the IS Advisory Council.
Newsletter Editor (2 positions)
The IS Newsletter Editor serves a two-year term and is responsible for editing and publishing the Section’s biannual newsletter. The IS Newsletter Editor serves under the general direction of the IS Executive Committee and maintains close communication with the IS Communication Committee chair. The IS Newsletter is the official publication of the Section, providing current information about the Section’s news, activities, publications and projects.
The IS Newsletter Editor is a member of the Communication Committee and is a non-voting, ex-officio member of the IS Advisory Council.
This volunteer position provides final-round editing for IS publications. The position is intended to ensure that IS publications are consistent, professional, and polished, and that they reflect well on IS and on ACRL. This position is also intended to remove some of the burden of detail editing from IS committees or individuals, freeing them to focus more of their energy on a document’s content. The duties and responsibilities of the Publication Editor include 1) ensuring correct and consistent Chicago citation style, 2) final copy-editing as needed (i.e. grammar, punctuation, etc. according to Chicago), and 3) final proofreading as needed (i.e. factual accuracy, clarity, etc.).
Interested in being considered? Please submit a letter of interest outlining your experience and knowledge applicable to the position you are interested in, a curriculum vitae or résumé, and samples of relevant work to IS Vice Chair, Carrie Forbes, at Carrie.Forbes@du.edu. Applicants must be current IS members. All positions are voluntary unpaid appointments. Candidates chosen for these positions will be appointed to a two-year term starting July 1, 2022.
Deadline to apply is February 15, 2022.
If you are not interested in applying for an IS Administrator position, you can still volunteer to be appointed to an IS committee.
