Just a quick note.  It seems there's still a lot of folks out there who haven't heard of Ed Summers' excellent little tool, http://jobs.code4lib.org.  It's a semi-automated harvesting system that's pulling in a ton of job posting related to libraries.  You can also filter out the @code4lib twitter posts that start with Job:, they're being supplied by this nifty little system.  And like many code4lib projects, it's open source and can be found as shortimer at git.

I know Ed was hoping it might even lead to part-time and contract work where someone might set up a short-term need and a programmer with a lot of library knowledge could fill it.  Say, adapt Evergreen so it interacts with some digital library software that it doesn't currently work with.  I haven't seen many of those yet, but hopefully we'll see those become more common. It would make earning a little extra money consulting far easier.
