Position Description

The Knowledge Analyst participates in technical operations in the area of data and information acquisition, management, analysis or dissemination. The analyst provides analytical support to economists and other professionals at the Board and in the System. The support includes research and data services, information analysis, and contributions to the design and maintenance of metadata and knowledge management solutions.

Position Requirements

The Research Library at the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System is seeking a Data Acquisitions Librarian (within the Knowledge Analyst job family).

As the central bank of the United States, the Federal Reserve's mission is to provide the nation with a safer, more flexible, and more stable monetary and financial system. As a Federal Reserve staff member, you will play a critical role in accomplishing this mission.

Research at the Federal Reserve Board is data intensive and time-sensitive.  The Research Library, with a full-time staff of 16 librarians and 2 technicians, offers a full array of desktop and customized library services to the approximately 2,700 staff members at the Board. More than 400 of the Board's staff are Ph.D. economists, and many more participate in the Board’s research efforts. 

For a portfolio of specific data and electronic subscription resources and subject areas, the data acquisitions librarian conducts reference interviews to learn about new data needs, maintains strong relationships with content vendors and data providers, negotiates both renewal of existing licenses and new licenses, arranges training, works with metadata librarians to ensure cataloging and access to data, and assists managers with budget projections.  The librarian works with four colleagues engaged in similar activities including:

Actively coordinating multiple contracts concurrently, assuring that acquisitions are completed to meet time-critical research needs. 
Working closely and communicating effectively with staff throughout the acquisitions process, including economists, vendors, managers and Board administrative, technical, procurement and legal staff.  
Meeting with vendors to understand the products and data available, communicating information to Board researchers, negotiating agreements, reviewing and editing contract documents, and preparing memos justifying purchases.
Representing the interests of the Board in the development of consortial agreements within the Federal Reserve System, comprised of the Board and twelve Reserve Banks. 
Advising management and end users on copyright and data usage restrictions including participation on the Library’s Data Review Team which ensures data used in projects are in compliance with license terms.

Qualifications Required

Master’s degree in library or information science from an ALA-accredited institution or degree in a related field or equivalent experience
Minimum of 2-3 years of experience in negotiating contracts and pricing for data and/or electronic subscription services that demonstrate effective and creative negotiation skills
Ability to coordinate acquisitions workflow and work collegially across multiple teams external to the Library including economic research, budget administration, procurement, legal, accounting, and data management.
Impeccable attention to detail especially in the areas of contract pricing, workflow tracking, and inquiry responses
Initiative to improve data services and follow through on all data requests
Demonstrated skill in prioritizing workload with the ability to manage competing projects.          
Strong analytical and problem-solving skills  
Excellent interpersonal skills, with strong oral and written communications skills
Capacity to work collaboratively as part of a team while simultaneously working efficiently and effectively as an individual

Desired:

Subject matter expertise in economics, finance, and business is preferred but not required
Demonstrates an understanding of data management best practices and the use of data in scholarly research
Knowledge regarding federal government contracting procedures
Familiarity with trends in assigning metadata to datasets for cataloging purposes
