*Visiting Research Programmer for Scholarly Communication and Repository 
Services *

*Academic Professional *

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

*Position Available:* As soon as possible, after closing date of 
search.* *This is* *a full-time, temporary academic professional 
appointment with possible renewal up to 3 years. This is a regional 
search; relocation expenses cannot be compensated. This full-time, 
temporary appointment in the University Library has the potential for 
renewal for up to three years. The position has been funded through the 
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library/IT Fee, a fund that 
is committed to supporting technology services and access to information 
for Urbana campus students. This is positions maybe come permanent at a 
later date.

*Duties and Responsibilities:* The Library is moving forward to 
implement a library-wide repository to preserve and manage created and 
acquired digital content and to expand its scholarly communication 
services to campus. Led by the Scholarly Communications and Repository 
Technical Team with close collaboration with key stakeholders within the 
Library and across campus, this effort will result in a scalable 
preservation repository, defined interactions with external partners 
such as the Hathi Trust, and the infrastructure necessary for sustained 
scholarly communication services, such as an institutional bibliography 
and scholarship portal, data curation tools, and researcher profiles.

As a member of this team, the Visiting Research Programmer for Scholarly 
Communication and Repository Services (SCRS) reports to the Technical 
Architect for Scholarly Communication and Repositories Services (TA) and 
participates fully in the planning and implementation of the repository 
effort and in particular to the development of technical services and 
applications to support the scholarly communication services of the 
Library. The successful candidate will be responsible for providing 
programming, database design, implementation and support, customization, 
and continued assessment of the technical infrastructure for all 
components related to scholarly communication services. These would 
include development of the repository itself. The SCRS Research 
Programmer works with staff from the Library and other key campus 
personnel to translate user needs into technical requirements and 
implement these in concert with the development of the repository. The 
SCRS Research Programmer explores, adapts, and implements emerging 
technologies to support efforts such as analysis of publication patterns 
on campus, understanding impact of research done at Illinois, and 
understanding collaboration patterns across campus. The SCRS Research 
Programmer works closely with the Scholarly Commons coordinator, the 
IDEALS coordinator, and the Head of Grainger to provide support to 
existing services, such as IDEALS, the campus repository, and the 
electronic theses and dissertations (ETD) service.

Specific activities include: 1) implementation and support of a planned 
digital repository to provide sustained access and preservation services 
to millions of digital files in the University Library’s growing digital 
research collections; and 2) the development of software applications 
that support the research and scholarly communications services that are 
being developed and refined through a collaboration of librarians 
involved in the current IDEALS Scholarly Communications Program, the 
Scholarly Commons in the Main Library, and the Grainger Engineering 
Library’s Digital Library Initiative. Several applications already exist 
in pilot mode, but they will require concentrated and sustained 
technical effort to make them production-level systems that can support 
campus-wide use. These include the Electronic Theses and Dissertations 
Deposit service (ETD’s), in collaboration with the Graduate College; the 
BibApp research connections software system; the Researcher Profiles 
system that enables the Library to create customized research 
information portals for research groups; and the Hub and Spoke toolkit 
for creating digital preservation packages for repository ingest. This 
position is vital to the Library’s nascent efforts to support the 
ongoing curation of researcher-created datasets throughout the campus 
and to help fulfill campus obligations to emerging federal agency 
requirements for data management, curation, and open access.
