Digital Library Jobs: Metadata Librarian at MIT

The MIT Libraries are recruiting a Metadata Librarian.

Here's an excerpt from the ad:

The MIT Libraries is seeking a self-motivated Metadata Librarian to join the service-oriented and innovative staff of our Cataloging and Metadata Services (CAMS) Department in support of discovery and access to MIT collections in both print and digital formats. This is a new position, whose responsibilities include: original and complex copy cataloging of monographic materials in all formats, creating and maintaining authority records, and creating metadata for the Libraries' digital projects. This position will serve as a resource for support staff performing copy cataloging and assist the unit manager with staff training, workflow redesign, and prioritizing and managing projects. The Metadata Librarian reports to the Head of the Monograph Cataloging Unit, works closely with the Metadata Specialist who leads the Metadata Services unit, and collaborates with staff of other library units engaged in metadata creation. S/he will direct students and supervise the work of staff as needed, be expected to keep current with emerging standards, and participate in committees and projects within MIT Libraries and beyond. The MIT Libraries currently utilize the Ex Libris' Aleph System for its Integrated Library System and DSpace for its digital repository. We are experimenting with vendor cataloging and end-processing services for more routine materials in order to allow CAMS to focus on specialized resources and MIT-produced content. CAMS maintains a close working relationship with all the directorates in the MIT Libraries and in particular works with the Technology Research and Development group which engages in research on the application of Semantic Web and Data Grid technologies to digital libraries and data curation. CAMS seeks to operationalize the output of this research.
