Out of the cataloguing business..into Digital Strategies

McMaster University Library is Getting out of the Cataloguing Business...and into several interesting new areas. There will be several new librarian positions - the most interesting, from an OA Librarian perspective, is:

Digital Strategies Librarian: This position will be responsible for developing our digital library program; building our digital infrastructure; assisting with implementation of an institutional repository; and developing strategies to align us with programs at the provincial and national level such as Alouette.

Cataloguers will be moving into "tiered reference".
