Smith College Special Collections (SCSC) seeks a Digital Archivist to help launch a robust digital special collections program. The born digital and digitized material in our three repositories reflects both the history and student life at Smith College, as well as the diversity and complexity of women’s lives and identities through the lens of social, political, and cultural change, a broad expression of gender justice.

The Digital Archivist will work closely with all members of Special Collections to process, arrange, describe, and make available unique born digital and digitized archival materials. In particular, this position will work closely with the Digital Preservation Archivist and the Accessioning Archivist to manage digital materials in incoming acquisitions; with the Collections Archivist to manage the backlog of digital materials in legacy collections; and with collections Stewards to appraise digital content in potential future acquisitions.

This position will join a dynamic group of colleagues in Special Collections who embrace an iterative work philosophy. We are always in the process of learning and improving, using creative solutions to complex problems, and being willing to challenge assumptions. Ability to pivot-to-improve is a value of our professional practice when based on assessment data, feedback, and experiential learning.
