Abstract: Handout of report to accompany ACRL Personnel Administrators and Staff Development Officers Discussion Group presentation (June 23, 2012) on the ARL PD Bank which includes mockups of the potential design. The ARL PD Bank will allow individual institutions to upload their position descriptions directly into the ARL PD bank. It will provide ease of collaboration between personnel officers from different academic libraries as well as provide each participating institution a sophisticated and customizable system for managing their own PDs.

ACRL Personnel Administrators and Staff Development Officers Discussion Group 2012 ALA Annual Conference ARL Position Description Bank In response to widespread support from ARL directors, ARL has sponsored the development of a system to establish a national bank of job descriptions and help institutions manage position descriptions (PDs). It is being developed by a UF team, with broad input from other institutions, and will be hosted in perpetuity by UF libraries. This is an ongoing resource not simply a one time effort to collect documents. Premise An effective, free system developed in partnership could enhance or ease the management of position descriptions and improve their usefulness to institutions. This institutional value will lead to adoption and use of the system, resulting in an industry level collection of current and evolving description of duties and the work of libraries. If searchable, this collection will improve the sharing of information about our industry and benefit libraries. Development Timeline Planning Phase (April June 2012) Implementation Phase (June 2012 January 2013) Launch Phase (January March 2013) Design Elements A simple, intuitive, easy to use interface Web application Documents uploaded and updated by institutions Text, PDF, or Word documents will be keyword searchable PDs and/or vacancy announcements and/or activity/assignment Metadata submitted and maintained by institution
