HEAD OF DIGITAL COLLECTIONS
University of Minnesota, Twin Cities -- University Libraries

The University of Minnesota Libraries seek a Head of Digital
Collections eager to provide innovative and expert leadership. We
seek an individual who knows best practices in digital content
production and management, is an excellent project manager and
communicator, and is skilled at building partnerships. This
individual will have extraordinary opportunities to innovate and
collaborate on digital projects with the Libraries' Archives and
Special Collections, which is home to internationally renowned
collections, and other Libraries and campus entities. Digital
collection production plays an essential role in the Libraries
aspiration to build and reveal collections of distinction.

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

CONTEXT:
The Digital Collections unit (DCU) fosters the creation of and access
to research and scholarly material in digital form from within the
collections of the Libraries and across the University of Minnesota.
The DCU, in collaboration with subject specialists and archivists,
provides expertise and services to departments, labs, and centers of
the University, supporting the creation, collection, archiving, and
dissemination of digital content. The DCU supports in-house and
externally contracted digitization services (including fee-based
services). The DCU works with Technical Services to develop
comprehensive metadata standards for digital assets and shares these
with the campus through documentation, training, and collaborative
project planning. The DCU monitors and participates in national and
international initiatives to ensure that local practice is compatible
with emerging standards in the larger digital collections
community. The work of the DCU complements and is closely
coordinated with the Libraries' Digital Conservancy initiative, which
develops sustained institutional capacity for access and preservation
of born-digital information assets.

Digital Collections is a unit within the Information Technology (IT)
division of the University Libraries and reports to the division's
Digital Library Development Lab, a department that provides
programming and architectural support for digital library
initiatives. Other departments in the IT division include one for
management of Libraries enterprise systems, and another responsible
for desktop and server infrastructure and basic technology skills development.

As a member of the Digital Library Federation, a recipient of IMLS
funds, and a participant in the Minnesota Digital Library Coalition,
the University of Minnesota Libraries builds tools and collections
that serve as statewide, national, and international models and
interact effectively with other digital collections of interest to
the University community.
