Head of Digital Preservation at New York Public Library

New York Public Library is recruiting a Head of Digital Preservation.

Here's an excerpt from the ad:

The Head of Digital Preservation will lead efforts to create a long-term digital preservation strategy, establishing the policies and procedures that address the preservation of the digital assets the Library collects and generates. For over a decade, the Library has made significant investments in digitizing distinctive collections and building online systems to provide access worldwide. It has digitized over 800,000 images, which are available through its innovative Digital Collections and Archives & Manuscripts platforms. More recently, the Library has begun digital reformatting as its means of preserving its world-renowned audio and moving image collections and it has established a digital archives program to pursue and manage important born-digital collections. The Library has plans to substantially increase its activities in all three of these areas.
