Metadata and Cataloguing Librarian

The University of Alberta Libraries, with a long tradition of service
excellence to the University and its communities, seeks a dynamic
individual for the position of Metadata and Cataloguing Librarian.
Working within a team environment, the successful candidate will

schemes to information resources, and provide expertise and leadership
in policy development relating to metadata for library resources.

Responsibilities include providing metadata and cataloguing and

selection or design of tools to support metadata creation, harvesting
and migration; acting as a system-wide resource and providing staff
training and awareness relating to creation and use of catalogue records
and other metadata; collaborating with appropriate staff in the
development and application of techniques and measurements to assess the
effectiveness of traditional and emerging metadata in meeting user
needs; liaising with consortial partners and other campus groups,
including collaboration on projects; and participating, when
appropriate, in regional, national and international initiatives to
promote shared development and use of metadata and its standards and
practices.  Responsibilities may also include providing reference

MODS, MADS, METS, EAD, TEI, MARCXML and RDF is required, as well as
knowledge of authority control systems, serials or digital resources
cataloguing. Applicants must also possess a strong service orientation,
the ability to work independently and as a team member in a dynamic
environment, strong communication and organizational skills, aptitude
for complex, analytical work with attention to detail, problem-solving
skills, flexibility, the ability to prioritize work to ensure that
