Additionally, the jobholder will play a key role in identifying and selecting systems for email management. The position holder will oversee AUC Records Management staff members and storage areas, and assure the efficient running of the operation and best use of space and resources. He/she will also seek opportunities to provide educational offerings beyond the AUC community via classes and workshops. The jobholder will also support the mission of the University Archives in other ways, such as oral history, exhibitions and preparation for AUC's 2019-2020 Centennial.
