Under the general supervision of the Chair of Library Faculty, but with routine day-to-day collaboration with the Head of Technical Services, the Electronic Resources Librarian is responsible for the management of electronic and digital resources and serials subscriptions specifically regarding issues of access, user support, and resource acquisition. As library resources evolve and with a view across formats, this position will contribute to the evaluation of scholarly and disciplinary resources by providing data on elements such as format options, usage patterns, cost, and relevance to Pratt's areas of study and research. In addition to familiarity with subscription based electronic resources, the candidate will be knowledgeable about managing access to born digital and open access resources.
