Hi all, I am on a search committee for the following opportunity at the Indiana University Bloomington Libraries. Have a closer look if you are interested and/or pass along to someone you know that would be a good fit:


Metadata Analyst
Assistant Librarian/Associate Librarian
Indiana University Bloomington Libraries

The IU Bloomington Libraries are seeking an energetic, innovative and service-oriented individual for the newly created position of Metadata Analyst for the Indiana University Digital Library Program (DLP).  

Founded in 1820, Indiana University Bloomington has grown from a small state seminary into the flagship campus of a great public university with over 42,000 students and almost 3,000 faculty. Innovation, creativity, and academic freedom are hallmarks of IU Bloomington and its world-class contributions in research and the arts. The campus covers over 1,800 wooded acres and is distinctive for both its park-like beauty and an architectural heritage inspired by local craftsmanship in limestone. 

The Indiana University Bloomington Libraries (http://www.libraries.iub.edu) are among the leading academic research library systems in North America, having recently been named the top university library by the Association of College and Research Libraries. The IUB Libraries provide strong collections, quality service and instructional programs, and leadership in the application of information technologies. The IU Libraries system consists of eighteen libraries on the Bloomington campus, five libraries in Indianapolis, and a library at each of the other six campuses across the state. The collections support every academic discipline on campus and include more than 6.6 million books, journals, maps, films, and audio/visual materials in over 900 languages. Users can access more than 400 databases, 43,000 electronic journals, and 224,000 electronic books, as well as locally developed digital content.  

The IUB Libraries are active members of regional and national associations and consortia including the Committee on Institutional Cooperation (CIC), the Association of Research Libraries (ARL), the Digital Library Federation (DLF), and is a founding member of HathiTrust, a shared digital repository. IU is the principal investigator for Kuali Open Library Environment (OLE) and is working with academic library partners to develop a next generation open source library management system. 

The DLP is a system-wide resource that is dedicated to the production, maintenance, delivery, and preservation of a wide range of high-quality networked resources.  As part of the Library Technologies and Digital Libraries division, the DLP assumes a leadership role in the development and delivery of services to preserve and provide access to digital content from IU's libraries, archives, museums, faculty, and academic departments to local users, citizens of the state of Indiana, and beyond. The DLP provides a focus for the development of strategies and initiatives that will help guide the University's libraries through the transformations necessary to succeed in the digital age.

The Metadata Analyst reports to the Associate Director for Digital Library Content and Services and will be responsible for:
+  Planning long-term metadata strategies for the IU Libraries and DLP
+  Advising on appropriate standards and approaches to creating and managing metadata for digital projects, collections, and systems
+  Working with collection managers, subject specialists, and catalogers to identify appropriate metadata standards in digital projects covering a variety of media, including text, music, still images, audio, and video.
+  Designing and/or adapting XML schemas, XSLT stylesheets, Schematron assertions, and RDF ontologies for digital systems and projects
+  Translating metadata between formats and integrating metadata from a variety of sources
+  Participating in the design and development of services to support preservation of and access to digitized and born-digital content from IU's collections
+  Collaborating with local, national, and international partners on research to advance the state of the art in digital libraries
+  Serving as a liaison between the Digital Library Program and internal and external partners on collaborative metadata projects
+  Performing project management activities for individual digital collection and systems projects

The Metadata Analyst will work on projects across the spectrum of the Digital Library Program, including those in support of the Lilly Library, University Archives, Cook Music Library, Archives of Traditional Music, Wells Library, and other units on the IU Bloomington campus, as well as in support of other IU campuses. The Metadata Analyst will also provide metadata planning and analysis support for IUScholarWorks, IU's suite of online scholarly communication services (based on DSpace and Open Journal System software), and IU's Fedora-based digital collections repository.

The Metadata Analyst will also contribute to DLP's involvement in IU's efforts to support data management and curation for its researchers and in the groundbreaking work on data publishing and curation to be undertaken as part of an NSF funded DataNet award. Additional work will overlap with the HathiTrust Digital Library (http://hathitrust.org) and the HathiTrust Research Center (http://www.hathitrust-research.org).
