Purdue University Libraries seeks an energetic, intellectually curious, and
innovative librarian to join the Libraries as Metadata
Specialist. The Metadata Specialist is responsible for
developing metadata strategies to facilitate discovery, use, and preservation
of Purdue digital assets. This includes developing collaborative approaches to
the development and application of metadata standards to emergent Libraries
collections and to address issues of knowledge management faced throughout
campus.

The position will specify the application of appropriate descriptive,
administrative, and technical metadata schemas for digitized and born-digital
content managed by the Libraries. This will include a
leadership role in non-MARC metadata projects. This
position will develop strategies for metadata interoperability to facilitate
effective access and preservation. This includes strategies for integrating
heterogeneous metadata from highly distributed collections within local
services, as well as exposing locally generated metadata to external
services. The position will play an active role in national
and international discussions about the emerging and dynamic role of metadata
in providing access to information resources.

Participating in interdisciplinary, sponsored research with Purdue faculty,
this position will help develop new approaches to describing and managing
research data and other digital collections. The position
will work closely with the Digital Collections Librarian, Head of Archives and
Special Collections and other Libraries' faculty and staff to develop policies
and workflows for digital collections. The position will
collaborate with the Head of Metadata Services to implement workflows and
practices for managing digital collections.

The successful candidate will work with faculty and staff within IT, Resource
Services and Research to develop a systems architecture for managing
heterogeneous metadata, including MARC and non-MARC formats, and to develop
production workflows for managing metadata for the Purdue University Libraries
and Press. The position will report to the Associate Dean
for Digital Programs and Information Access

**Requirements**: Master's degree in Library/Information Science (ALA accredited or equivalent). Experience working with standard metadata formats from the library, digital library and publishing communities (e.g., MARC, EAD, METS, MODS, PREMIS, ONIX). Experience selecting and applying controlled vocabularies and ontologies to digital library projects. Familiarity with data interchange standards (e.g., OAI-PMH, SRW/U). Excellent communication skills and the ability to interact effectively with faculty, staff and students. Ability to work independently and as a team member in a dynamic environment and on a variety of simultaneous projects. Strong analytical skills. Evidence of successful participation in partnerships or collaborations. Demonstrated understanding of information seeking and use behaviors, particularly in digital environments. Evidence of scholarly research. Ability to achieve promotion and tenure.

**Desired:** Experience collaborating with faculty and staff external to libraries on digital projects. Demonstrated success with grant-writing. Familiarity with current issues and trends in library technology. Experience collaborating on the application of metadata in cyberinfrastructure, research, and laboratory environments. 3 years of academic library experience. Experience with developing standards and recommendations in archival curation and related metadata management, including linked data (e.g., SKOS, OWL, DC Application Profiles, VIAF, ORCID).

**Appointment:**Depending upon qualifications, appointment will be at the assistant, associate, or full professor rank. The full job announcement can be seen at: [http://www.lib.purdue.edu/admin/hr/career_opportunities/Metadata_Specialist.pdf](http://www.lib.purdue.edu/admin/hr/career_opportunities/Metadata_Specialist.pdf)
