strategic aims of the library and University.

the application and implementation of search solutions. Your technical skills
will include some or all of the following: HTML5, CSS, XML, PHP, JSON, Perl,

Previous experience working in a research library would be beneficial but not
essential.

judged individually according to the nature of the role and information
