Dear Colleagues:



The UCLA Library has reopened its search for the Digital Library
Programming Team Leader and System Architect (Programmer/Analyst IV) in
Library Information Technology. This position leads development of
digital asset management systems for all formats, including text,
images, audio and video. Salary will be within the range $63,120 -
$113,544 per annum


Current development activities include a local system based on Oracle
10g, Java (including Struts, JSP, and JSTL), XML, and related
technologies. Systems are being developed to manage digital object
ingest and management, web delivery services, digital preservation, and
metadata transformations. The Digital Library Architect also leads the
development of open source solutions for digital asset management,
including a learning object repository based upon DSpace repository
software and OAI-based services, including data harvester, data
provider, and a service provider. Future projects are anticipated to
support learning and research activities across the University.


The Digital Library Architect will be aware of and involved in standards
and technologies relating to digital asset management and delivery,
Digital Library services, standards for digital asset exchange, and
digital technologies that support learning and research. The DL
Architect works with staff within the Digital Library Program to set
priorities and technical development goals to support local digital
library infrastructure needs. The DL Architect also works with other
campus groups--such as the Center for the Digital Humanities and
Academic Technology Services--on cooperative projects and with the
California Digital Library on projects across the University of
California system, including data exchange between UCLA and CDL's
Digital Preservation Repository. 


The DL Architect heads a development team of two full-time programmers,
and, as funding permits, one or two additional grant-funded programmers.
The DL Architect reports to the Head of Library Information Technology.
LIT is a unit of approximately 25 people, responsible for the systems
development and operations for all of the Libraries at UCLA. Systems
include both custom-built and purchased applications for both web and
client server systems. The infrastructure includes approximately 1000
workstations, 65 servers with over 100 terabyte SANs supporting
applications used worldwide via the Internet.
