The eXtensible Catalog Organization (XCO) is seeking several experienced Java developers with immediate availability for short-term assignments (6 months to 1 year).  See the position descriptions below for a list of qualifications and duties.  

Consideration will be made for qualified developers that are currently employed at another institution, but who may be available for loan to the XCO.  The XCO would cover the salary and benefits of such individuals in the form of a direct payment to their host institution.   This is an excellent opportunity for a library to invest in open-source software for libraries as well as a way to temporarily offset staffing costs in a difficult economic environment.  Only staff that can be made available to XCO at 100% time (or close to that level) will be considered for this arrangement.

Qualified candidates would have the opportunity to learn and be challenged to work with exciting technologies and are asked to bring a self-directed problem solving approach to the project.  

XC software is currently undergoing exhaustive testing with a range of legacy library systems and metadata.  The focus of our work going forward is on feature completion, code refinement, bug fixes and performance enhancement.  One critical task will be to develop our bulk metadata processing platform into a parallel processing workhorse.  Another task will be to develop support for a wide range of metadata formats, including Dublin Core data and authority records.

In these difficult economic times, we hope this approach to staffing might assist an institution in retaining a staff member in between projects.  With XCO-provided funding, staff would continue at their host institution but take their work assignments from the XCO team.

Contact Information

Interested institutions or individuals that would like to discuss this arrangement should contact Randall Cook at 585-273-2042.   Resumes can be submitted to:

Randall Cook

This position is responsible for software development, testing, and deployment activities for eXtensible Catalog software applications that are currently under development.  This position is part of the eXtensible Catalog Organization (XCO) (http://eXtensibleCatalog.org) and will help to enhance a suite of open-source next-generation library web applications.  This high-profile project will offer the selected candidate an opportunity to work with a range of developers, both within the project and at other institutions.

The XC software consists of several distinct applications, each designed to work with library metadata in various XML formats, to integrate with legacy systems, process data, and present web user interfaces.  The applications are built with a number of technologies.  Experience with some or all of the technologies listed below is highly desired and conceptual familiarity is required for discussion purposes.  The core list of technologies used in the Java-based components of eXtensible Catalog includes: Java, JSP, Struts 2 Framework, YUI Toolkit, SOLR, Lucene, mySQL, web services, XML, XSLT, and XML Schema.  Knowledge and/or familiarly with the following library specific standards and technologies is desired: MARC format, Dublin Core format, OAI-PMH Protocol, and NCIP Protocol.

One of the applications within the XC suite of software is called the Metadata Services Toolkit (MST) and it consists of a user interface and several distinct "services."  This position will be responsible for enhancing the performance of the MST and services via:
* Code changes to allow for multiple processor processing/parallel processing
* Enhancements in SOLR indexing and storage
* Code and query related optimization enhancements
* Other enhancements identified by the XCO management

Position 2 - Summary -  MST Services

One of the applications within the XC suite of software is called the Metadata Services Toolkit (MST) and it consists of a user interface and several distinct "services."  This position will be responsible for the development of several additional services that will augment the existing feature set of the MST.  This work will entail working with Dublin Core data formats and Library of Congress Authority records.
