Agenda 1. Review 2. Introduction to System
ARL PD Bank ARL has sponsored the development of a system to establish a national bank of job descriptions and help institutions manage position descriptions (PDs). It will be developed by a UF team, with broad input from other institutions, and hosted in perpetuity by UF Libraries. This is an ongoing resource not simply a one time effort to collect documents.
Project Concept The ARL PD Bank will enhance the management of these documents and improve their usefulness. The use of the system, will result in an industry level collection of job descriptions. Effective searchability of the collection informs us about our industry and benefits libraries.
