We recently added this second position to our cataloging department and are seeking an innovative, service-oriented librarian. Our library encourages professional growth and provides support for professional development. Recent graduates are encouraged to apply for this position.

The Cataloging & Metadata Librarian focuses on the creation, maintenance, and enrichment of metadata representing the library's digital, physical, and virtual collections.

The librarian in this position collaborates with Library Systems & Digital Services, Archives & Special Collections and other departments to help establish metadata policies and procedures for digital projects. The Cataloging & Metadata Librarian serves as a forward-thinking leader within and beyond Library Technical Services on matters of resource description and metadata management.
