Anyone wanna rock and roll all day?

Does the idea of perusing through original artifacts, lyrics, photographs, and memorabilia from some of rock and roll’s biggest names sound like a dream job?

Well this is one dream that could come true. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, is looking for its next rock-and-roll-loving librarian.

The full-time position will have you spending your days getting up close with the library’s extensive collection of historic memorabilia, from a handbill from Bob Dylan’s first concert to personal files from the Grateful Dead, Janis Joplin, and Jefferson Airplane.

Besides working with the library’s collection of sound and video recordings, music scores, and books, the librarian will also help plan public events at the space and help select new materials that enter the library. They may also be asked to provide orientations and tours around the space.

Candidates need to have a master’s degree in library or information science to qualify, while a love of the genre is preferred. (We'd call it required.)
