I would like to take the liberty of noting something off topic, that the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is recruiting to fill the position of Archives and Literary Manuscript Specialist in our Rare Book and Manuscript Library.This is a new position reporting to the head of the Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and I am chairing the search committee. The position description, required/preferred qualifications, and application instructions may be found at

This is an exciting opportunity to work with word class manuscript collections in a top-tier research Library. Over time, the incumbent will work not only with paper based materials, but also with born-digital personal papers.

I am happy to answer any questions from potential candidates who are interested in applying.
