Medical Library Manager, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, Dallas (11/16/2018) 
Per Mary Peters - "For now it will be a 30 hour position rather than 40, but it is eligible for benefits. I work heavily with online journals and we are in the process of paring down the physical books and journals to revamp the space, so the coming years will be an exciting time of change. We have a separate Family Resource Center run by a medical librarian, too, so the new librarian will have a very helpful colleague. They have now posted my position and we invite applications! We hope to fill it quickly. Scottish Rite is a wonderful place to work. The Medical Library is at the Dallas location on Oak Lawn."
