BookOps is a shared library technical services organization that serves the Brooklyn Public Library and the New York Public Library. BookOps’ Selection Department coordinates, manages, and develops the print, media, and digital collections for the BookOps member libraries. Library materials are acquired in all formats for children, teen, adults, and world language users in accordance with the strategic goals and initiatives of the Brooklyn Public Library and the New York Public Library. In addition, Selection works collaboratively with other Library departments to meet shared goals and obligations.
The Specialist II develops, purchases, and manages educational resource teacher sets for the participating Department of Education (DOE) schools of the MyLibraryNYC program across New York City’s five boroughs. The teacher sets must align with Common Core State Standards, supplement and support school library collections, and support the curricular needs of participating schools. The Specialist II works closely with DOE colleagues, New York Public Library’s Strategy and Education Offices, and other BookOps units to create and manage sets.
