I found this job description for a systems librarian at a community college. Often, you do both copy cataloging and systems work but not always. Proven just means you’ve been able to answer interview questions to their satisfaction. Hope this helps!
The Systems Librarian performs a range of information technology-based services for the library. These services include integrated library system software, including automated circulation, cataloging, and online public access catalog services, online networked services of external library consortia; design, installation, and maintenance of the library’s website; and library services to distance learning students, including electronic reserves. The position performs the technical work required to facilitate all those services.
Incumbents must possess a proven ability to effectively work with a culturally, linguistically, and ethnically diverse faculty, staff, and student. They are expected to have excellent oral and written communication skills along with strong Information technology literacy skills such as Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, Teams, etc.)
Master’s degree in Library Science or appropriately related discipline with one (1) year of experience in computer systems, network and software design, development and implementation in a library environment; or a combination of education, training, and experience which would lead to the competencies required for successful performance of the position’s essential duties.
Successful Candidate must have or must possess:
Experience providing computer systems support to the College’s library.
Experience in design, installation, and maintenance of web pages and distance learning interfaces.
Advanced knowledge of computer hardware and software, local and wide-area networking, software applications development, and equipment installation and maintenance.
