If you’re a librarian looking for a sweet gig, the Naval Obsevatory (home to the VP’s residence, by the by) is looking for a new librarian to manage their copious number of books. They’re paying good money, too, between $77k and $100k. From the job description:
As the principal expert in astronomical information and literature for the USNO and the DoD, the incumbent must maintain an extensive knowledge of astronomical literature including USNO programs and other astronomical advances worldwide, including forthcoming major research results, information sources, current research information needs and future requirements in order to have the broad-based knowledge and judgment required to meet the astronomical research needs of the DoD in general and of the USNO in particular with this knowledge, makes acquisition decisions for books, journals (printed and electronic).
Well, that rules me out… but if you want the job, feel free to check it out.
