Abstract

This exploratory study uses job advertisements from periodicals (College and Research Libraries News, Library Journal, and The Chronicle of Higher Education), a job discussion list (libjobs), and an employment Web site (Educause) from 1999-2004 to investigate position announcements of the newly emerging position of Instructional Design Librarian. Ten unique position announcements were identified and examined to determine the positions' qualifications and job responsibilities. The research reveals some notable similarities and differences among these positions and identifies a broad set of key characteristics.
