WHELF Shared Library Management System – job opportunity
The Wales Higher Education Libraries Forum (WHELF) is developing a major programme of work to procure and implement a shared Library Management System for all Higher Education Institutions in Wales, plus the National Library of Wales, and the Welsh NHS Libraries, following production of a successful business case for a shared system. We are now seeking to appoint an experienced Programme Manager to lead this strategic initiative. The post-holder will be based at Cardiff University, but will work closely with all of the Higher Education Institutions in Wales. This is a leadership role which will require vision and a keen awareness of the requirements and implications of shared services in Higher Education. You will work with a wide range of stakeholders from across the institutions and will need to have a keen awareness of the external IT environment which will shape the future delivery of library services. The initiative will also have a high profile nationally.
