Learner Experience Librarian position. Closes: Jan 31, 2018.

From the acrl-rig listserv

We (The College of Wooster) are now accepting applications for our Learner Experience Librarian position (  While not a new position at the College of Wooster Libraries, it is newly revised to reflect our changing instructional needs.

The College of Wooster offers an excellent, comprehensive liberal arts education, culminating in a rigorous senior project, in which each student works one-on-one with a faculty mentor to conceive, organize and complete a significant research project on a topic of the student’s own choosing. Through this distinctive program, every Wooster student develops abilities valued by employers and graduate schools alike: independent judgment, analytical ability, creativity, project-management and time-management skills, and strong written and oral communication skills. Founded in 1866, the college enrolls approximately 2,000 students.

I recently accepted the position of Librarian of the College leaving a university librarian position at an R1 institution.  I was attracted to the College of Wooster Libraries due to the distinctiveness of its liberal arts and research-intensive approach to the undergraduate experience.  Almost every senior has a study carrel in one of the three libraries.  Our gate count is one of the highest (15,000/week) for an institution our size as is our circulation of physical materials from our million-volume collection.  Our access to resources via Ohio Five’s consortia catalog and our membership in OhioLink rivals what I had access to at an R1.  Students are focused and engaged in their learning.  The student population is approximately 54% women, 20% domestic students of color, and 13% international students.

We are not seeking someone who is “like us,” or “one of us,” but rather an individual with the knowledge and vision to help us achieve our mission of cultivating “an environment where students, faculty, and staff, as a diverse community of learners, discover, create, communicate, and preserve knowledge and insight.”

How to Incorporate the Human Element in Automated Intelligence Gathering

Wednesday, January 24, 2018, 12:00-1:00 ET

Julie Clegg, CEO
Human-i Intelligence Services Inc. 

Artificial intelligence is quickly becoming a reality.  What does this mean for vocations that appear easy to automate but require deep humanity, like investigation, or are optimized by a combination of both human and artificial intelligence?

This presentation will explore research, intelligence and investigation from a human perspective – how we manage issues of ethics and morality, compassion, empathy and cognitive bias in an increasingly automated environment. This webinar will equip those that need to find information with the very best internet-based tools and techniques to do so, combined with the best data processor we have…our brain.


*       Learn how to navigate the technical landscape-learn which tools do what, and how to combine automation with human intelligence gathering
*       Discover pros and cons of artificial intelligence in research and investigation
*       Find tools and techniques to increase productivity online
*       Understand the value of collaboration and mentorship
*       Discover how to maintain relevancy as technology advances

Our Speaker, Julie Clegg:

From the computer screen to the television screen, Julie has crafted her life’s work around investigation, profiling and technology, combining her knowledge of cyber-psychology with two decades of online investigations experience to bring to light those that hide in the digital shadows and cause disruption, distress or terror.

Julie is a former police detective and undercover operator, criminal and geographic profiler, an active search and rescue volunteer, a passionate human rights advocate, a global educator and an avid world traveler.  Along with her trusted team of leading global experts, Julie uses all-source intelligence with a focus on online OSINT, social media intelligence, and ethical and proportionate practices for covert and undercover investigations to solve complex problems for corporations, governments, law enforcement and non-profits worldwide.

In a world of increasingly artificial intelligence, Julie brings human solutions to digital investigations.
