    Announcing a recruitment for: Open: August 19, 2019 

    CLARK COUNTY LAW LIBRARY BOARD OF TRUSTEES ASSISTANT LAW LIBRARIAN – PART TIME 

    First Application Review will occur on August 30, 2019 The recruitment is open until filled.
    How to Apply – See page 2 

    The Clark County Law Library is created by RCW 27.24 and under that statute provides a professional legal collection for judges, prosecutors, other lawyers and county and state officials. The Library is a unique entity, created by state statute but located in the county. We are governed by a five-member board of trustees, and the bulk of our revenue comes from our statutory share of filing fees. Use of the Law Library is available at no cost to the public during our open hours. The general public is the largest user of the Law Library, asking roughly 90% of the reference questions. The Library is open from 9-3 M-F, with the exception of opening at 9:30 on Tuesday. Work hours are 6.5 hours per day, and employees work through lunch pursuant to an agreement, which allows the Library to be open continuously for 6 hours a day. 

    THE JOB 

    Applications will be accepted until an adequate number of applications are received or the position is filled. This recruitment may be closed at any time after the first review date. 

    The Law Library is managed by a Board of Trustees, according to RCW 27.24. The Assistant Law Librarian reports to the Law Librarian and assists part-time in the operation of the Law Library. This is not a typical “librarian” position and does not require a library degree. Rather, legal background and knowledge is necessary. 

    The work schedule is 2 days per week for a total of 13 hours per week and the scheduled days are currently Tuesday and Wednesday, but those days are open to negotiation. The ability to work extra days as needed is a plus as this position normally covers time off for the Law Librarian. The position is eligible for paid time off on a prorated basis. The Law Librarian works 3 days per week and overlaps with the Assistant Law Librarian one day per month, so the ability to work alone and be self-directed while asking appropriate questions is necessary. 

    The position will primarily advise attorneys and the public in use of the Law Library; conduct reference interviews with patrons to learn what materials might be helpful for them to use; provide information on availability, location and use of legal materials and library equipment; provide excellent customer service while avoiding giving legal advice and within the confines of library rules; monitor and control circulation of library materials; send overdue notices and take other appropriate action to retrieve library materials; share and receive material through interlibrary loan; track circulation and use statistics; process mail; check in materials; maintain and update materials; control lending of materials; shelve all materials; and keep online catalog current. 

    In addition the incumbent may also help with other projects and duties as assigned. Examples include but are not limited to networking with other agencies, preparing fliers and brochures, assisting with shifting the collection; placing notices in the bar newsletter; preparing internal reference and search tools to help patrons find materials; and assisting the Law Librarian in the legislative process to advance the interests of the county law libraries as assigned. 

    The use of office software including Word, Excel, and Outlook is daily, as well as use of both free and fee-based legal and general internet sources. Multitasking skills and the ability to tolerate numerous interruptions while still maintaining a high level of attention to detail are required. The incumbent must be able to act as a resource for public librarians on legal reference matters as well as interact with the Clark County jail regarding legal research questions from inmates. Highly accurate cash handling skills also required. The ability to sit, stand, climb stools, reach, squat, and occasionally lift/carry boxes up to 50 pounds for short distances is required. 

    QUALIFICATIONS 

    Any combination of experience and training that would likely provide the required knowledge and abilities is qualifying. 

    A typical way to obtain the knowledge and abilities would be: 

    • Increasingly responsible experience in the legal field. 
    • Experience in professional library work.

    • Paralegal training and experience.

    Candidates must have:

    The ideal candidate will also have the following: 

    • Familiarity with either Lexis or Westlaw is preferred. 
    • At least three years of experience in a legal setting is preferred. 
    • Must have a genuine desire to work part-time. 
    • Flexibility with scheduling is a plus. 
    • A law degree and/or library degree with legal experience is strongly preferred. 

    Knowledge of: principles and practices of general library administration and reference techniques; legal terminology, procedures, and both print and online research; principles and practices of record keeping and reporting. 

    Ability to: work well with a varied patron base consisting of judges, attorneys, students, and pro se patrons, some of whom may be angry, poorly educated, or have difficulty with English; prioritize and multitask to accomplish assigned work with high level of accuracy; be self-motivated; communicate clearly and regularly with Law Librarian to allow a seamless work environment where both people work part-time; follow up on projects that are awaiting input from others; understand the meaning of legal advice and avoid providing it; understand the legal situations and procedures patrons face and provide appropriate material to them; type at a speed of at least 45 wpm; use Windows computers including Word and Excel; effectively use both print and online legal resources; work alone while following library rules and ask questions as needed. 

    SALARY
