Subject: Job Pre-Announcement: Head, ILL Unit at the National Library of Medicine
I will be posting a supervisory librarian position (GS 1410-13) later this week.  We are recruiting public service leaders with a background in collection access or resource sharing to head our busy ILL Unit (approximately 250,000 transactions annually).  NLM is a lend-only ILL participant.  The majority of our ILL traffic arrives through DOCLINE and we serve as the library of last resort for interlibrary loan in the National Network of Libraries of Medicine.  We are looking for professionals who enjoy a team environment, a busy atmosphere and have a passion for collection access.
Once posted, the announcement will be open for five days.  The short time period reflects NLM’s effort to hire talented people quickly.  We’re sending out this pre-announcement to give you time to spread the word to interested colleagues, or to consider your own application.  Because of the short time frame, it would be advantageous to create a USAJobs account now and upload a resume to it.
The announcement will be available in USAJobs and from “Jobs at NLM” on NLM’s home page:
If you would like to learn more about the position, please feel free to contact me and thanks for spreading the good word about NLM!
