The Library of Congress serves the Congress in fulfilling its duties and preserves and promotes knowledge and creativity for the benefit of the American people. It is the nation's oldest federal cultural institution and the world's largest library, with more than 151 million items in its physical collections (including books, manuscripts, prints, photos, film, video, and sound recordings) and almost 20 million items online. Located primarily on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., the Library is the home of the U.S. Copyright Office, the Congressional Research Service (CRS), the Law Library of Congress, and the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
The Ft. Meade collections consist of many millions of items in multiple formats, including books, serials, maps, manuscripts, and sheet music. Working closely with the Materials Handler Supervisor, Ft. Meade Storage Unit and the Ft. Meade Program Specialist, the incumbent is responsible for a variety of activities in support of collections inventory control, tracking, and electronic document delivery service. The incumbent serves as a primary access point for electronic document delivery and serves as the first line of contact for Library staff and contractors. The incumbent is supervised by the Collections Integrity and Maintenance Officer. Because of the geographic separation between the supervisor who is stationed on Capitol Hill, and the incumbent who is stationed at Ft. Meade, the incumbent must be able to work with a great degree of independence and exercise judgment and discretion to a greater extent than if the incumbent were assigned to Capitol Hill.
The position is located in the Off-Site Storage Unit of the Collections Maintenance and Off-Site Storage Section, Collections Integrity and Maintenance Office, Collections Access, Loan and Management Division (CALM), with a primary duty station located at the Library of Congress Ft. Meade Storage Facility at Ft. Meade, MD.
The position description number for this position is 231970.
