**DIGITAL PRESERVATION LIBRARIAN**

**PRESERVATION AND CONSERVATION**

**UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN LIBRARY**

****

The University Library at the University of Michigan seeks a dynamic and
engaged Digital Preservation Librarian to provide leadership and coordinate
the library's activities to preserve the library's growing collections.



The University Library
([http://www.lib.umich.edu/](http://www.lib.umich.edu/)) has been actively
building digital collections since 1997. The library's Digital Library
Production Service ([http://www.lib.umich.edu/digital-library-production-
service-dlps](http://www.lib.umich.edu/digital-library-production-service-
dlps)) was a pioneer in developing systems for capture and serving digitized
information to the public and now hosts over a million items from the
library's Web site. Michigan's partnership with Google to digitize the
library's entire print collection ([http://www.lib.umich.edu/michigan-
digitization-project](http://www.lib.umich.edu/michigan-digitization-
project)), and more recently the formation of HathiTrust
([http://www.hathitrust.org/](http://www.hathitrust.org/)), are transforming
how scholars can search, find, and use information. Other major digital
initiatives have been launched by MPublishing
([http://www.lib.umich.edu/mpublishing](http://www.lib.umich.edu/mpublishing))
and the library's institutional repository, Deep Blue
([http://deepblue.lib.umich.edu](http://deepblue.lib.umich.edu/)). The digital
collections receive support from the Library IT Core Services team
([http://www.lib.umich.edu/library-information-technology/core-
services](http://www.lib.umich.edu/library-information-technology/core-
services)), who design and manage the technical infrastructure to support
these collections.



**RESPONSIBILITIES**

The Digital Preservation Librarian will report to the head of the Department
of Preservation and Conservation in the library's Collections Division
([http://www.lib.umich.edu/preservation-and-
conservation](http://www.lib.umich.edu/preservation-and-conservation)).
Working closely with staff in Library IT Core Services, Digital Library
Production Services, MPublishing, Deep Blue, Preservation, and other library
units as well as partners at other institutions, the Digital Preservation
Librarian will:

 Research, plan, and implement an ongoing preservation program for University Library collections of value in digital format. Review existing library practices, analyze and respond to needs. Advise library staff and digital content managers on all phases of the life cycle of digital content, with the aim of long-term retention and access. Assist in the development of requirements, specifications, and policies related to digital content the library solicits, accepts, purchases, or creates. Advise both library staff and external content creators on strategies and implementation of those specifications. Support the development of the preservation program for the HathiTrust shared digital repository. Develop and maintain disaster recovery planning and policy documents.

 Stay current on developing technologies, standards, and practice in preservation of digital collections; recommend responses to these developments through periodic alerts, summaries, reports, and revisions to policies and procedures. Represent the University Library in forums on digital preservation at the campus, regional, national, or international level.

 Prepare proposals for external funding for digital preservation projects. Prepare specifications for vended services that support the digital preservation program; evaluate responses to proposals for such services and make recommendations for selecting vendors; and act on behalf of the library as a technical liaison on preservation issues to vendors providing digital materials and services. Represent the University Library in cooperative projects or programs in digital preservation.

 Perform public outreach by creating guides and other informative materials, giving talks, and maintaining the Digital Preservation web site. Orient, train, and supervise interns or other temporary staff during their participation on relevant projects.



**QUALIFICATIONS**

Required: ALA-accredited Master's degree in library or information studies, or
equivalent advanced degree and experience, plus a minimum of 2 years of

media, and migration is required, along with an aptitude for quickly mastering
technical topics. Experience creating, reviewing, and editing metadata for
digital objects, especially METS and PREMIS. Excellent oral and written
communications skills and the ability to work collegially are essential.

It is anticipated that the position will be filled at the Associate Librarian
or Senior Associate Librarian level; final rank and salary are dependent on
experience and qualifications. Librarians receive 24 days
