COPPUL is seeking a coordinator for its Shared Print Archive Network (SPAN). SPAN is a distributed retrospective print repository program, with 20 western Canadian university libraries participating. SPAN's primary goals are to provide access to shared print archives, create opportunities for the reallocation of library space and to preserve the print record for its members in a cost-effective manner. This partnership emphasizes the role of the archived print as part of an optimal copy network that includes other print archiving initiatives. This is a .5 FTE position, and may be filled as a secondment opportunity. Reporting to the Executive Director, the SPAN Coordinator will be responsible for overseeing SPAN’s print archiving efforts. The Coordinator will work with the Executive Director, contacts at the COPPUL member libraries and the COPPUL SPAN committees to establish, maintain, document and improve on best practices in archiving print materials. Review of applications will begin February 6, 2017.
