****************************

DIGITAL LIBRARY FEDERATION POSITION DESCRIPTION: 
DIRECTOR, DLF DISTRIBUTED OPEN DIGITAL LIBRARY (DODL)

BACKGROUND: 

The vision and purpose of the DLF since its founding has been to put in
place the means of developing large-scale federated digital libraries
that advance the ongoing collaborative efforts of research libraries and
deliver the rich mosaic of their complementary holdings to scholars
through a variety of innovative online services.  Much has been
accomplished by DLF members along with other collaborators in the last
nine years putting essential building blocks into place - organizational
capacity, digital collections, and technical, service, and strategic
expertise; agreement about and widespread implementation of key
standards and best practices; experience of cross-institutional
collaboration.

The DODL initiative takes a next step forward: utilizing these building
blocks and leveraging the evolving institutional capacity of its
members, the DLF will extend the depth and breadth of high-quality
online library collections and the range of innovative online services
that make them readily accessible to research, teaching, and learning.
The initiative may also be a vehicle for increasing the amount and value
of DLF content in a sustainable manner.  When DLF members can truly
share digital resources, contribution of digital content conveys the
benefits of cooperative collection development:  each library's
contribution is repaid by complete access to the larger collection.  If
the value of the collection is sufficiently attractive, digital
contribution becomes a means of acquisition, potentially sustained with
library operating funds.

The DLF seeks a director for its Distributed Open Digital Library. The
Director will operate at a level equivalent to an Associate University
Librarian and be responsible for providing collaborative leadership in
developing, realizing, sustaining, and communicating the goals and
achievement of the DLF's distributed digital library. 

MAJOR DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES WILL INCLUDE:

1) Overseeing the development of essential strategic, sustainability,
and project plans for the DODL including collection strategy,
information architecture, service operational and functional
requirements, rights management framework, standards framework, business
plan, etc 

2) Encouraging and facilitating DLF members' contributions to the DODL.
It is anticipated that contributions may take many forms including
digital information content, service development, applied research (e.g.
into users' needs, technical issues, etc.), strategic planning, and
evaluation 

3) Overseeing implementation and development effort, keeping track of
and reporting appropriately on progress. This will include but not be
limited to: 
 
3a)convening, facilitating, participating in, providing appropriate
leadership for, and reporting on meetings of the various committees and
task groups directly involved in realizing the DODL; 

3b)initiating and coordinating actively the work of the various
committees and task groups of the DODL; 

3c) preparing and present reports on DODL matters to the DLF and the
broader public; 

3d) arranging for appropriate analytical work (e.g. user assessment
surveys, reports on tools, features, standards, technical requirements,
etc); 
acquiring appropriate funding and other support from the DLF, member
institution, and external agencies 
	
3e) partnering strategically with organizations and individuals that
share a common interest in realizing the DODL's aims; 

3f) documenting decisions, processes, and developments of the DODL; 
 
4) Representing the DODL in DLF gatherings (DLF Forum, DLF Steering
Committee meetings, DLF working groups as necessary) and externally; 

5) Other duties as assigned. 
 
The DODL Director will be an employee of the Digital Library Federation
(DLF) and be responsible organizationally to its Board through the
chairman (currently Michael A Keller, University  Librarian, Stanford
University). Programmatically, the Director will be responsible to the
convener of the DODL prototype group (Daniel Greenstein, University
Librarian, California Digital Library) - a small group of DLF members
who have agreed to play an active role as participants in DODL's initial
developments. Participating institutions include: California Digital
Library, Emory University, Indiana University, Johns Hopkins University,
Library of Congress, New York University, Stanford University,
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign University of Michigan,
University of Minnesota, and the University of Virginia. It is
anticipated that the Director will coordinate and work closely with the
DLF Director (David Seaman) in particular to ensure that the DLF's
broader program of initiatives at once informs and reflects DODL's
development needs and interests.

The Director may be located at any of the DLF member institutions,
though a strong preference will be shown to candidates able and willing
to work from Stanford University (Palo Alto, CA), the California Digital
Library (Oakland, CA), the Council on Library and Information Resources
(home of the DLF in Washington DC), or any of the DLF member
institutions that are participating as members of the DODL prototype
development group. 

QUALIFICATIONS:

1) A minimum of three years' leadership experience in a related
professional responsibility, such as a position in a digital library
program in a large research library, a program officer in a
bibliographic utility or similar organization, or a mid-level staff
member in an information technology company relevant to digital library
developments; 

2) A graduate or professional degree in a relevant field (librarianship,
informatics or information management, software development); 

3) Demonstrated success in strategically planning and managing
implementation of complex, collaborative projects 

4) Ability to work well with and motivate others and to induce the best
from co-workers and colleagues; 

5) Excellent written and oral communications skills 

6) Fluency in basic Internet technologies and applications; 

7) Upbeat, self-motivated attitude and personality 
 
Salary and benefits: commensurate with duties and responsibilities, but
expected at the level of an assistant or associate university
librarian's salary in the region from which the successful candidate
will operate.

To apply, send a letter of application and a resume with the names and
contact information for no fewer than three persons who are willing to
serve as references to:
