Do you have a passion for the intricacies of intellectual property? An abiding preoccupation with copyright law? A strong desire to explore the complexities of institutional Open Access policies, digital asset and data management, and the changing role of the academic library within the world of academic publishing?
The California Digital Library (University of California) seeks a Copyright Management Officer to serve as an expert and point of contact on copyright issues pertaining most specifically to the UCSF Open Access Policy (and others as they are implemented across the campuses), eScholarship publishing services, data-intensive research activities, as well as the use and reuse of copyrighted materials within UC’s systemwide special collections services. This position will also consult collaboratively across the organization, coordinating with other CDL units that provide related services and policy guidance in regards to data management and licensed content. Tasked with educating librarians, faculty, staff and students in copyright matters, the incumbent will provide leadership in the development of copyright policies and best practices, as well as the development of resources designed to provide ongoing guidance in these issues. In addition, the Copyright Management Officer will monitor and participate in the development of national and international legislation and policies around copyright and will lead the effort to advise and consolidate UC systemwide responses to these initiatives.
