DescriptionWith a growing collection of over 225,000 records representing approximately 100,000 manuscripts, the Schoenberg Database of Manuscripts (SDBM) is the largest freely available repository of data on manuscript books produced before 1600. The SDBM, maintained by the University of Pennsylvania Libraries, is being redeveloped into an online, open-access, collaborative tool for researching the historic and current locations of the world’s pre-modern manuscripts. We are seeking to fill a two-year, full-time, NEH-funded Programmer Analyst position to take over the technical development of the New SDBM. Working directly with the project manager and the Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies (SIMS) Digital Content Programmer, the PA will continue the development of the New SDBM, a crowd-sourced application providing web, mobile, and application interfaces for the discovery, access, and entry of manuscript data, using the Ruby on Rails framework, jQuery, Blacklight, and AngularJS. The PA will also work with Library Technology Services (LTS) to integrate the New SDBM with the Library’s Digital Library Architecture (DLA).
