Hamilton College and its Library and Information Technology Services (LITS) division are trailblazers in supporting teaching, learning and faculty/student scholarship. In addition to the support provided for traditional library and IT services, LITS staff are actively engaged in efforts to support digital scholarship in innovative ways, including through the internationally recognized Digital Humanities Initiative (DHi). We are a member of national and regional consortia including the Oberlin Group, the Islandora Collaboration Group, the Consortium of Liberal Arts Colleges, and the Council on Library and Information Resources. LITS and Hamilton College have a strong commitment to the ongoing professional development of its employees, encouraging them to seek opportunities to expand and strengthen their skills.
We seek a collaborative, creative, strategic thinker to join LITS in the role of Digital Scholarship Librarian and Repository Manager to help support our ambitious initiatives. Reporting to the Director of Metadata and Digital Strategies, the incumbent will work alongside diverse faculty, student, librarian, and IT colleagues across campus and within open-source communities on projects that advance research, teaching, and learning.
The Digital Scholarship Librarian will employ broad knowledge and technical expertise to enhance digital scholarship projects and library digital collections software. The position demands solid knowledge of current and emerging digital scholarship practices and tools, core library standards, systems and collections workflows, as well as the ability to think strategically about how to evolve systems to meet emerging needs. The incumbent will manage our digital collections systems as well as collaborate on digital scholarship projects. This is the perfect professional opportunity for someone who would enjoy partnering with others to help guide Hamilton’s digital future and enhance scholars’ ability to pursue new avenues for learning and research.
