The position coordinates with library staff to ensure efficient operation of the digital repository system, and supervises a team of student digitization workers. Key responsibilities include: developing the technical infrastructure necessary to support the Library’s digitization strategy; leading and/or consulting on digital projects/initiatives that develop digital collections; providing training and support for other library staff in the development of digital collections; and ensuring adherence to accepted digital preservation policies and practices. Supporting and coordinating the creation of metadata for digital collections is a key activity.
This is a great position for a highly creative librarian interested in having significant influence over the development of a comprehensive digital collection architecture. While we have chosen our core tools--namely Fedora and Islandora--there remains plenty of freedom to determine the ultimate shape and look of the entire array of digital collections. As in any large academic library, there will also be a constant series of new challenges and projects to tackle, and this position will lead the choice of tools and frameworks to move these forward.
This is a full time continuing appointment reporting to the Associate University Librarian, Library and Learning Technologies.
