Research Libraries Position Description Bank

Would you like to search job descriptions at your peer libraries from a single interface? Could you use a digital archive of job descriptions from your own institution? The Research Libraries Position Description Bank could be just the tool for you.

About the RL PD Bank

The Research Libraries Position Description Bank (RL PD Bank) is a collection of position descriptions (PDs) from major academic and research libraries.  The RL PD Bank fosters the sharing of information through a browsable and searchable database that provides access to a collection (or bank) of PDs. The RL PD Bank supports the management of PDs for individual institutions, providing an effective organizational method and system that supports findability as well as archiving for long-term digital preservation.

The RL PD Bank provides participating institutions with a functional digital archive of their own position descriptions. In addition to standard data fields available to all participants, individual libraries may elect to use custom data fields that would not be viewable by other institutions, such as employee and supervisor names, classification, date last reviewed/modified, and other data identified by the institution as useful for internal purposes.

The RL PD Bank is governed by a steering committee with representation from the Association of Research Libraries, the Association of Southeastern Research Libraries, the Canadian Association of Research Libraries, Research Libraries UK, and the George A. Smathers Libraries of University of Florida (ex officio). The RL PD Bank is managed by the George A. Smathers Libraries.  A user advisory group with members from across the associations and the Smathers Libraries provides feedback and recommendations for improvements.
