Metadata Librarian (2 positions) - Content Access 
Management (CAM) and Illinois Harvest
Assistant Professor of Library Administration, 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library

Position Available: September 21, 2007 
(negotiable). This is a full-time, regular, 
faculty position in the University Library.

The University of Illinois Library is at a very 
exciting and dynamic point in its digital library 
development. Prior to the current year, digital 
projects at Illinois were small to medium sized 
and narrowly focused in scope. An infusion of 
funding for FY07 has facilitated our entry into 
several large scale digitization programs, and a 
recently passed library fee holds promise for 
future endeavors. UIUC is a member of the Open 
Content Alliance and houses an Internet Archive 
scanning center in our high-density shelving 
facility. Early in the year, we awarded a large 
RFP for digital scanning services for eleven 
sizeable collections of Illinois related 
materials. As a member of the Committee on 
Institutional Cooperation (CIC), UIUC will be 
contributing up to two million volumes to the 
Google Book Search project in the coming years. 
Our institutional repository, IDEALS, and our 
digital preservation program are starting to 
mature. Last, but not least, we are developing an 
OAI-PMH based web portal called Illinois Harvest 
to aggregate and present digital content created 
at the University of Illinois with digital 
content about Illinois created by libraries and 
museums elsewhere. The successful candidates will 
have an opportunity to help build a great digital 
library at one of the nation’s premier academic libraries.

Duties and Responsibilities: The University of 
Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library seeks two 
innovative individuals to provide expertise and 
guidance in metadata schemas and standards and to 
assist in their implementation within the 
Library. The Metadata Librarian is responsible 
for helping plan and manage metadata production 
of digitization projects for the Illinois Harvest 
Project and other digital work for the University of Illinois Libraries.

The Metadata Librarian is a faculty position 
reporting to the Head of Content Access 
Management (CAM). Responsibilities include:
- Lead, manage, and coordinate activities 
relating to metadata production for description, 
access and preservation of digital materials 
acquired or held by the UIUC Libraries. 
Coordinate the work of staff involved in metadata 
production including providing training and 
technical assistance to other department and library staff.
- Work with the Head of Content Access Management 
and other faculty and staff involved in large

- Formulate, document, and implement the 
Library's policies, procedures, and best 
practices for use of descriptive metadata schemas 
(such as MARC, MODS, Dublin Core, and other 
applicable schemas), preservation metadata 
schemas (such as PREMIS), content standards (such 
as AACR2 and CCO), controlled vocabularies (such 
as LCSH, TGN, AAT and other applicable 
vocabularies) and transmission standards such as 
METS. Work with other units (such as the 
University Archives and IDEALS, the campus 
institutional repository) as necessary to 
coordinate alignment of existing policies, procedures, and best practices.
- Implement and use digital library systems and 
applications for improving access to digital 
collections including CONTENTdm, DSpace, DLXS, 
Olive, Oxygen, Voyager, and/or other local 
systems in iShare, the Illinois consortial online 
catalog. Provide input into selection of other digital library systems.
- Participate in metadata remediation, 
transformation, and creation using appropriate 
schemas to support the Illinois Harvest Portal 
and the University of Illinois at 
Urbana-Champaign Library's growing digital collections.
- Create collection level records for the Library's digital collections.
