Interim Executive Assistant to the Board – Cooperating Libraries in Consortium (CLIC)

About CLIC:
Cooperating Libraries in Consortium (CLIC) is comprised of six academic libraries in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Working together since 1969, CLIC provides our member academic communities a world-class research library experience. In our first 50 years, CLIC member libraries have proven that working together creates better and more cost-effective outcomes than working alone. CLIC’s mission flows from the missions of our member libraries, and the collaborative framework is built to enhance our strengths and to support the research occurring at our institutions. We count our staff, collections, and facilities among our collective strengths and strategically use our combined assets in creative, collaborative, and effective ways. Together, we share resources, provide greater quality of service, and reduce and contain costs.
