Recognizing that a library’s metadata is one of its most valuable and visible assets, Yale University Library is hiring a new Metadata Strategist to take a lead role in coordinating metadata operations across the organization.

Example areas of focus for the Metadata Strategist include:

  • Managing metadata crosswalks from MARC 21 to Linked Art JSON-LD for the LUX cross-collections discovery platform.
  • Partnering with colleagues in Digital Collections to assist with metadata mappings and migration.
