Eric Lease Morgan,

My name is Mark Custer and I work in the Digital Collections department
at East Carolina University (but I did my undergraduate work at
IU-Bloomington, so I'm no stranger to Indiana).

In any event, this email probably arrives way too late, but I was
wondering if applications were still under review for the Digital
Project/CRRA position? (I noticed, of course, that the original deadline
was November 1st)

This would be an ideal position for me since I have a library degree and
have been knee-deep in EAD for over the past year (and have actually
enjoyed it).

So, if the search is still open, please let me know, and I'll start
writing a cover letter this week so that I can apply ASAP.

If not, though, hopefully I'll be able to see you around at the code4lib
conference this year if I'm able to go.  Coding isn't my background, but
it's something I'm trying to learn a bit on my own time now since I have
to work with so much XML and XSLT.

Thanks in advance, 


Mark Custer

Digital Project Librarian
Hesburgh Libraries
University of Notre Dame

On behalf of the Catholic Research Resources Alliance (CRRA), the  
Hesburgh Libraries at the University of Notre Dame seeks applicants  
for the position of Digital Project Librarian. This position will  
support the creation, maintenance and implementation of a portal  
application providing access to rare, unique, and infrequently held  
materials in academic libraries, seminaries' special collections, and  
archives. In electronically bringing together access to resources from  
many collections, the portal will create easy, effective, and global  
discovery of Catholic research resources. By exploiting any number of  
well-established metadata schemes, community-building processes, and  
database/indexing technologies, the portal will provide access to  
research resources in print, digital and other formats.

Responsibilities

The primary job responsibilities include:

  * Writing documentation for requirements, standards, portal
    protocols, portal architecture, instructions for participating
    libraries, and "about the portal."

  * Planning the implementation schedule for future development.

  * Communicating project activities to participating libraries,
    CRRA committee members, and project sponsors.

  * Training and instructing on the creation of Encoded Archival
    Description (EAD) files to participating libraries based on
    current best practices as well as CRRA metadata standards,
    requirements, and protocols.

  * Serving as a member of Team Catholic Portal.

The successful candidate will initially be appointed for a two year  
term with every expectation that the position will become ongoing. The  
individual will be housed in the Digital Access and Information  
Architecture Department and administratively report to the Head of the  
Department. Team Catholic Portal is responsible for the overall  
management of the portal.

Environment

The CRRA is a collaborative effort initiated by eight Catholic  
colleges and universities to share their resources electronically with  
librarians, archivists, researchers, scholars interested in the  
Catholic experience, and the general public. The CRRA was founded by  
the libraries at Boston College, The Catholic University of America,  
Georgetown University, Marquette University, University of Notre Dame,  
Seton Hall University, University of San Diego and St. Edward's  
University. More information as well as a demonstration portal is  
accessible at http://www.catholicresearch.net/. On behalf of the CRRA,  
the University of Notre Dame serves as the current secretariat where  
the project staff will be housed.

The University of Notre Dame is a highly selective national Catholic  
teaching and research university located in South Bend, Indiana.  
Approximately 8,200 undergraduates and 3,100 graduate students pursue  
a broad range of studies. The Hesburgh Libraries hold about 3 million  
volumes and provide access to the content of about 60,000 serials. The  
Libraries have approximately 140 staff and 55 librarians. The  
Libraries are a member of the Academic Libraries of Indiana, the  
Association of Research Libraries, INCOLSA, the Michiana Academic  
Library Consortium, the Center for Research Libraries, and the North  
East Research Libraries.

The University of Notre Dame is open to and enriched by the presence  
of diverse scholars. As such, we welcome and encourage applications  
and nominations from women and minorities.

Qualifications

ALA-accredited master's degree in library, archival and/or information  
science, or appropriate equivalent. Knowledge of metadata and archival  
encoding standards, including but not limited to EAD, MARC, XML, and  
Dublin Core. Analytical and organizational skills such as meeting  
deadlines, setting priorities, etc. A demonstrated ability to work  
collaboratively and train others is critical. An understanding of the  
importance of rare and archival special collections is desirable.  
Evidence of critical thinking and excellent oral and written  
communication skills are required.

Compensation

The Digital Project Librarian will be appointed as visiting faculty.  
Rank and salary will be commensurate with qualifications with a  
minimum salary of $40,000. A benefits package including paid holidays  
and 20 vacation days will be offered.

Application Procedures

Interested candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, the names of  
three references, and a letter of application indicating interest in  
the position. Electronic submission of application documents is  
strongly encouraged. Please send application materials to Michelle  
Stenberg ([log in to unmask]). If electronic submission is  
not possible, then send an application to her at 221 Hesburgh  
Libraries, University of Notre Dame, IN 46566. Review of applications  
will begin November 1, 2008 and continue until the position is filled.

The University of Notre Dame is an AA/EOE.


P.S. Don't hesitate to drop me a line. I don't mind answering  
questions about the position.
