About this Page / Submission Guidelines

Scope

CLC posts library-related jobs from all types of libraries and other institutions in the state of Connecticut and beyond. (Please note that out-of-state libraries must pay the non-member fee for listing positions; see Fees, below.) Custodial positions are not accepted. Clerical positions may be accepted at the discretion of the editor.

  

Organization

Jobs are divided into four general library categories - public, academic, school, and corporate/special - plus an additional category for all types of professional jobs with salaries below the CLA recommended minimum. Within each category, jobs are listed in by date, with newest postings at the top. Job titles are in bold type; hiring institutions (e.g. libraries, towns, universities, school systems, corporations) are in purple.

 

Revision Schedule

This page is updated every 1-3 days as needed. Ads with deadlines are removed once the deadline has passed. Ads without deadlines remain listed for one month. The date the ad was posted to this site appears at the beginning of each listing (e.g., 7.6.2016). When applying for a position that has been listed on the site for several weeks, you should consider contacting the hiring institution to ensure that the position is still open.

 

Submissions

  • CLC invites submissions of library jobs which fall within the scope of this page (see above). Submit jobs via email to jobs@ctlibrarians.org.
  • For professional positions - Please include a salary or salary range. If you do not wish to publish the position's salary, please indicate in your email if it meets the CLA recommended minimum. This information need not be published in your listing. Professional-level jobs without salary information will be posted at the bottom of the page.
  • CLC reserves the right to edit listings for length.
     

Fees

Libraries, schools, and other institutions that are members in good standing of the Connecticut Library Consortium, or are institutional members of the Connecticut Library Association, may place advertisements on this site for no charge. The fee for non-member institutions is $100.00 per advertisement. When submitting your ad, please provide a contact name, institution name, billing address, phone number, and email address for this purpose. To verify your institution's membership status, search our member directory.

 

What is a "professional" position?

Professional level positions in libraries include directors, department heads, and other management level positions; most positions that include "librarian" in the title (eg., children's librarians, reference librarians, teen librarians, catalogers/cataloging librarians, corporate/law/medical librarians, etc.); school library media specialists; and many more. Just because a hiring institution does not require an MLS for such positions does not mean they are not professional in nature. Positions with words such as "technician" or "assistant" or "clerk" in the job title are generally considered support staff and thus are exempt from the CLA salary guideline.
