This is a 3-year fixed term position.
Stanford Libraries is seeking a full-time Digital Projects and Data Manager to join a team supporting preservation, discovery, and access as part of its digital library, an internationally recognized technology program developing innovative solutions to advance teaching, learning and research at one of the world’s leading universities.
As a part of Digital Library Systems and Services (DLSS), the Digital Projects and Data Manager is a member of a highly collaborative team engaged in the creation, management, preservation, and publishing of digital collections. The Digital Projects and Data Manager contributes to these efforts as both a project manager and a data manager.
The Digital Projects and Data Manager is a member of a cross-organizational team engaged in the expansion of Virtual Tribunals (VT) at Stanford. Launched to the public in 2018, VT (https://exhibits.stanford.edu/virtual-tribunals) is a project to compile a comprehensive database of international criminal tribunal records, from the post-WWII cases through the contemporary tribunals, fully digitized, and rendered searchable through a single online portal. Working within the curatorial, technical, and operational framework established for the VT project, the Digital Projects and Data Manager supports work to incorporate additional content, including archival audiovisual and textual materials, to the database. They work with subject matter and language experts, digital collection specialists, digital library service managers, and archivists as needed; they also may serve as the product owner or business owner during software development cycles, working with engineering teams on enhancements and maintenance.
We are looking for a team member who is excited about the following:
- Using open standards and technology that support research, teaching, and learning at Stanford University, and that make our collections available to the Stanford community and others across the world
- Collaborating and supporting one another as we elevate our delivery of high-quality services
- Enabling groundbreaking digital access to archival collections in a range of media, including audio and video
- Finding ways for us to help situate our work within Stanford’s Long-Range Vision
