Digital Projects Program Director

Reporting to the Associate Dean for Collection Services, this is a new 
department head level position offering the opportunity to lead the 
Libraries in building digital services and collections. The successful 
candidate will combine the technical skills necessary to build digital 
collections with the management and leadership skills necessary to build 
a service that requires input and expertise from across the Libraries. 
This person will work closely with special collections and archives, 
cataloging and metadata, and systems staff and librarians to manage the 
network of skills needed to provide digital collections of value to the 
Libraries and the University. Projects include digitization of special 
collections and archives collections, electronic theses and 
dissertations, digital repositories for the intellectual output of the 
University community, and preservation of born digital materials. 
Responsibilities include review, approval and prioritization of digital 
project proposals from throughout the organization; documentation of 
policies, procedures and standards relating to digital services; vendor 
liaison; and representation of the Libraries in consortia such as the 
Texas Digital Libraries.

The UH Libraries recently adopted a set of strategic directions 
(http://info.lib.uh.edu/strategic_directions.pdf) and we seek 
individuals who will be interested in supporting and implementing this 
plan. The Libraries support the ongoing professional development of 
librarians and our goal is to recruit librarians committed to continuous 
learning. Librarians hold academic ranks pursuant to the University of 
Houston Librarians’ Governance document. They are expected to develop a 
record of service and professional involvement.

Qualifications: Required: Masters degree from an ALA-accredited program; 
demonstrated excellent communication skills and strong service 
orientation. Knowledge of and experience with the software/hardware 
applications as well as the technical and metadata standards used in 
organizing and presenting digital information. Ability to work in a 
team-based environment. Preferred: Experience with the ExLibris’ digital 
asset management system Digitool.

Salary: $64,000 to $70,000 anticipated hiring range, depending on 
qualifications. Excellent benefits package, including health coverage; 
choice of retirement programs including TIAA-CREF; tax-deferred annuity 
program available; release time to take a class up to 3 hrs/week; no 
state or local income tax.

Library Information: The Libraries offer public access to over 300 
databases on more than 260 workstations. The Reference and Information 
Desk serves a diverse mix of traditional and nontraditional students, 
the greater university community, and a variety of non-university 
constituencies. The UH Libraries are a member of the Association of 
Research Libraries, the Greater Western Library Alliance, and the Texas 
Digital Library Alliance. They hold over 2 million volumes and have a 
current materials budget of $6 million. Total staff includes 48 
professionals and 120 support staff. Additional information available 
at: http://info.lib.uh.edu.

General Information: The University of Houston campus comprises 13 
colleges and schools offering close to 80 degree programs with an 
enrollment exceeding 35,000 students, 7,200 of whom are enrolled in 
graduate studies. Reflecting the multicultural community of metropolitan 
Houston, UH is one of the most ethnically diverse research university 
campuses in the nation.

Houston, the fourth largest city in the United States, offers all the 
cultural and recreational opportunities of a great city and is within 
easy reach of the Gulf of Mexico. It enjoys a very reasonable cost of 
living and was rated eighth among livable North American cities by
