This fall, EDST Will be launching a Course Resource Room (CRR) on the 3rd floor of Ponderosa Commons North (PCN) as part of its 30th anniversary activities. The aim is to operate a community space that would compile and archive EDST course materials for the benefit of students and faculty. The intention is to create a space that would facilitate community members’ access to course materials and syllabi in ways that would support student engagement with courses and faculty members’ access to historical records of courses offered over the years.
Applications are invited for a paid graduate student position of 6 hours per week over three days for the Winter 1 2023 term to reach out to faculty members and sessionals who teach or taught in EDST with the intention of soliciting course materials they would like to donate to the Course Resource Room. Once syllabi and course materials are obtained, the successful applicant will be entrusted with their complication, inventorying, and making all resources available to the EDST community.
The CRC is not a library, but rather an active resource room. Course-related materials of past and present courses may include reprints, resources, textbooks, syllabi, and whatever materials faculty members and instructors willingly choose to donate for public reference.
At this time the appointment is for one term only, with the possibility of extension for a second term subject to development of the project, and if warranted. The expected start date of the position is October 1st, 2023.
All graduate students are eligible to apply. Applications should include a résumé (1-2 pages), relevant experience in the area of archiving, documentation, compilation, and community engagement (in a one-page narrative), and one letter of reference from a person with whom the applicant has worked. All materials should be submitted in one PDF file by Monday, October 2nd, 4:00 PM PST.
Applications should be submitted by email to the EDST Administrative Manager, Holly-Kate Collinson-Shield, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be accepted.
