From the GMR: Job Posting in NW Wisconsin
Please pass on to anyone you know who might be looking for work in NW Wisconsin - must live/work in Ashland, Barron, Bayfield, Burnett, Douglas, Iron, Polk, Rusk, St. Croix, Sawyer, or Washburn County. I'm sure Midwest librarians know of good program managers in or interested in working in NW Wisconsin - this include communities just across the border from Minnesota. I know of one librarian program manager (Mark Scully) and know that many of you would be great at this job.
This region was the main target area for the first NLM Outreach Grant that I coordinated for NAHEC - great people to work with in a rural environment with Native American health centers and four seasons recreation possibilities. The AHEC regions in Wisconsin have been reorganized into three smaller regions - the original area covered was simply too large.
Thanks - Peg
