I'm glad to see Regis College is putting out a national search for this job, because I'm dying for the opportunity to move across the country to fill it. Wow! 4-5 hours a week! Doing reference and bibliographic instruction! And I don't even need an ALA-Accredited MLS! But I would need 3 professional references. After all, they don't want just anybody stepping in 4-5 hours a week doing reference and BI. This just shows that there are great reference jobs out there that you don't need a library degree to get.
And what's more, they're looking for another one of these positions for 12 hours a week! So they can have 2 library jobs that suck on the same campus. Cheapskates.
For all you reference librarians out there, this may be the wave of the future.
