DescriptionReporting to the Assistant Director-Cataloging and Metadata Department, the Metadata Services and Original Cataloging Coordinator will expand the scope of original cataloging and resource description at Penn while serving as a member of the CatMet management team. We are seeking a highly-motivated, innovative, and collaborative individual to lead a team of four accomplished original cataloging librarians and one paraprofessional. Members of Original Cataloging contribute authority and bibliographic records to the Library of Congress’ Program for Cooperative Cataloging (BIBCO, NACO, SACO); participate in LC’s Electronic Cataloging-in-Publication (ECIP) Program, creating pre-publication bibliographic records for University of Pennsylvania Press titles; and, analyze and map metadata for MESA (Medieval Electronic Scholarly Alliance). Within the Information Processing Center, the CatMet Department provides bibliographic control and access to the Libraries’ collections in a variety of formats and languages. In addition to participating in strategic and operational planning for the Department, the incumbent will fully integrate metadata services beyond traditional cataloging into the unit. The successful candidate will advocate for and promote future new services while motivating staff and ensuring timely discoverability of the Libraries’ physical and digital resources.
