Digital Humanities Librarian at Ohio State University Libraries

Ohio State University Libraries are recruiting a Digital Humanities Librarian.

Here's an excerpt from the ad:

The Digital Humanities Librarian will establish and grow a dynamic, multifaceted program that addresses the growing demand for digital arts and humanities support on campus. Working with arts and humanities scholars, faculty and students, the Digital Humanities Librarian will foster successful adoption and application of digital arts and humanities approaches to research, teaching, and learning. The librarian will engage deeply with the Digital Arts and Humanities Working Group, the Digital Media Collective, ACCAD (Advanced Computer Center for the Arts and Design), and other campus entities to identify innovative and evolving digital tools and resources that advance scholarly investigation, while building upon the traditional cornerstones of research methodologies in the arts and humanities disciplines. The librarian will be the liaison to the University's Humanities Institute and will collaborate with faculty participating in Institute projects and initiatives funded by the College of Arts and Sciences, and will collaborate with the Head of Digital Initiatives in the Libraries on projects originating in the Institute. The Digital Humanities Librarian will be a change agent, partner, and resource person for subject librarians and special collections curators involved in facilitating faculty and student digital projects and will be expected to conduct regular environmental scans of the campus environment to identify emerging areas of interest.
