Metadata Librarian at Texas A&M University

The Texas A&M University Libraries are recruiting a Metadata Librarian.

Here's an excerpt from the ad:

The Metadata Librarian is responsible for providing metadata expertise and serves as the primary resource on non-MARC metadata design, structure, and standards (descriptive, technical, administrative/preservation) for the University libraries. The Metadata librarian assists in developing and implementing metadata strategies for discovery, access, management, and preservation of digital assets; evaluates projects slated for inclusion in the Texas A&M University digital library; and assesses user needs in order to develop appropriate metadata schemes for complex heterogeneous collections. The librarian is expected to consult with TAMU faculty regarding metadata for datasets and research collections, as well as provide metadata support for the digital repository and the Texas Digital Library Preservation Network. The librarian serves on Texas Digital Library committees and working groups as assigned. The librarian is expected to maintain awareness of national metadata and digital library standards in order to apply this knowledge in digital projects, make informed policy decisions, and serve as a general resource of knowledge for Texas A&M University and its affiliates, including providing consultation services, training, and participating on Texas A&M University committees as needed.
