Description

The University of Idaho Library seeks an innovative, flexible, and highly collaborative Digital Initiatives Librarian who will help promote, develop, and maintain the digital services and projects of the library and the relationships that make these services and projects possible. Reporting to the Dean, this position will work within the Data and Digital Services (DDS) department and closely collaborate with other library units such as Special Collections and Archives and User and Research Services. This position will work with the Head of DDS to oversee the day-to-day operations of the digital initiatives laboratory and will work closely with members of the DDS department to maintain and monitor the functionality of the libraries’ many online representations, including the library website, digital collections, and VIVO application.

The successful candidate should be comfortable communicating the importance and uses of the various platforms and applications to a variety of partners, collaborators, and users. The ideal candidate will have an excellent attention for detail and a capacity to learn new skills and technologies, but need not be proficient in programming or systems. We are looking for someone who will take pride in the libraries’ innovative digital products and services, and who has the oral and written communication skills to express the importance of these assets to both the university community and communities outside the university.
