Attention, blueathena!
I saw a listing on the Ole Miss Human Resources Department website for a Special Collections Digital Initiatives Librarian & Assistant Professor. Here are the requirements to be considered:
ALA-accredited MLS by date of appointment. Experience with current and emerging technologies in digital and web-based library services. Knowledge of traditional and emerging metadata standards and experience with one or more major descriptive metadata standards: EAD, Dublin Core, or others. Experience with database design and development. Proficiency in webpage development and in the use of web-authoring tools. Demonstrated ability to plan, initiate, and implement effective programs and services. Ability to work independently as well as collaboratively in a rapidly changing environment. Ability to meet tenure requirements and interest in ongoing professional development. Excellent oral, written, and interpersonal communication skills and the ability to serve as a team member. The successful candidate should have public services experience.
I don't know if this fits you or not. I do know your current position is a short-term one and that you used to live in Oxford. Is this listing of any interest to you? I hope it helps.

It does sound interesting to me, but I unfortunately don't have much of the expertise they're looking for. I have yet to learn anything about EAD, Dublin Core, database design... Not that I cannot learn it, just that I haven't yet and that it will probably take me a little while to learn it. I do need to though.
I did use to live in Oxford. I liked it, but the last couple of times I have visited the town I found that I cannot find the sentimentality of the college days I had there. UM will just have to find someone more suitable for the job anyway. :)
I am intrigued by jobs which may crop up in Vermont, New Hampshire, upstate New York, and then (yeah, big climate change) Arizona, New Mexico, maybe Texas, possiby Nevada. But I will very likely stay in the KY-TN-NC-SC-VA area another couple of years. :)
I am also intrigued by Chicago. hehe :)
