The University of Minnesota Libraries are recruiting a Director, University Libraries Enterprise Technology.
Here's an excerpt from the ad:
The University of Minnesota-Twin Cities Campus Libraries seek a visionary and experienced information technology leader to imagine, define, implement, and support the next generation of library information systems for one of the leading research institutions and libraries in the country. The newly redefined position of Director of Enterprise Technology emphasizes innovative library service delivery as supported by large-scale system deployments and collaborations. Reporting to the Associate University Librarian for Information Technology, the Director oversees the staff and application support functions of the library's enterprise systems, while collaboratively creating and realizing a broadened vision for the University's enterprise library and data management systems. In this capacity, the Director collaborates with all sectors of the Libraries, the University's coordinate campuses libraries, and the University's Office of Information Technology. The Director also fosters and sustains operational and strategic relationships with peer institutions, consortia, and information system vendors.
The Director of Enterprise Technology envisions plans, and implements collaborative strategies for current and future library enterprise applications to achieve ambitious organizational goals within budgets and timescales. The Director assigns, coordinates, directs, and supervises the staff in the department responsible for several production-deployed enterprise systems, and works with a newly instantiated Data Management and Architecture unit (within Enterprise Technology) and its unit head to shape strategy and operations in response to increasing demands for data processing, data architecture and modeling, and decision-support reporting, all activities that rely heavily on data within enterprise systems. The Director sees that established data standards and IT best practices are supported to ensure interoperability and efficient operations, and to minimize risk. The Director supports numerous relationships within the Libraries, the institution, with peer institutions and with vendors to determine functional and technical requirements and in support of change management. The Director is a member of the Libraries Leadership Council, which shares responsibility for Libraries planning, budget allocation, and strategic program development, and has a critical responsibility for collaboration and building strong relationships with internal and external stakeholders. The Director is also a member of the Libraries IT Directors group, and the Libraries IT Council, and leads the Libraries' Enterprise Technology Advisory Council, which includes representation from the University Libraries (Twin Cities), the Law Library, and the University's coordinate campus libraries.
