Head of Metadata Creation at Harvard Library

The Harvard Library is recruiting a Head of Metadata Creation.

Here's an excerpt from the ad:

Reporting to the Head of Information and Technical Services (ITS) and working closely with the ITS management team, the Head of Metadata Creation will lead staff members engaged in conceptualizing, developing and managing metadata descriptive practices that leverage a rich past as Harvard explores new, scalable techniques to provide access to unique content and objects. Together they will lead the effort to optimize metadata, including user generated metadata, and cataloging output and to find new ways to make the library's collections more accessible to local and global user communities and scholarly resources existing elsewhere more accessible to Harvard faculty and students. Success attributes include strong strategic focus, active participation in the ITS management team, a visible commitment to staff development in an environment that promotes creativity, innovation and continuous improvement, robust and effective communication with key constituents and stakeholders, and accountability for results.
