MedLib Geek Wanted at Memorial Sloan-Kettering

I visited this library a few months ago and thought it looked like a great place to work. If the description below sounds like you, get your resume to them quickly. This library has an all-professional staff and they are actively expanding in non-traditional ways. If I could, I’d apply myself. It looks like the (substantial) geek skill requirements are much more important to them than a background in health sciences, so this would be a great way for a library geek to enter the world of medical libraries.
