Position: Manuscripts Digitization Project Librarian (At Will Appointment)

Available: May 1, 2013

  
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill University Library seeks a
knowledgeable, resourceful, and collaborative individual for the position of
Manuscripts Digitization Project Librarian. The Project Librarian will
coordinate activities for the multi-year grant project, Content, Context, and
Capacity: A Collaborative Large-Scale Digitization Project on the Long Civil
Rights Movement in North Carolina. The project began July 1, 2011, is
currently funded through June 30, 2013, and will be requesting funding for an
additional year of work through June 30, 2014. In this project, member
libraries of the Triangle Research Libraries Network (TRLN) will digitize
approximately forty modern manuscript collections and archival record groups
in their entirety and present the digitized collections on the open web. TRLN
(http://www.trln.org/) is a collaborative organization of Duke University,
North Carolina Central University, North Carolina State University, and The
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

  
Under the supervision of the grant's principal investigator at the University
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the Project Librarian will work closely with
the project steering committee representing the four TRLN member libraries.
The successful candidate will coordinate all project activities including
project working groups for materials handling, evaluation, and outreach, and
may chair one or more of these; ensure all project deliverables and deadlines
are met; design and oversee the implementation of project assessment
activities; create and manage the project's web and social media presence; and
write and organize project documentation, including internal and external
reports. Job responsibilities will evolve as project work progresses and will
require travel among the campuses and within the Triangle area. The Project
Librarian will collaborate with project staff, TRLN central staff, and
colleagues at the TRLN member libraries for the successful and timely
completion of the project.

  
Each TRLN member library holds world-class special collections, including
manuscript collections and archival record groups that document the historical
era known as the Long Civil Rights Movement (LCRM). The primary objective of
the project is to promote scholarship and support educational uses of
manuscripts and archival resources by extending the reach of modern
collections beyond the walls of the four institutions through digitization.
Secondly, the project will provide a proof of concept for a collaborative
approach to large-scale digitization. As part of this project, the TRLN
libraries are developing and evaluating cooperative standards and practices
and test multi-institutional workflows that will deliver digitized special
collections online effectively now and in the future.

Required:

ALA accredited master's degree in library or information science with evidence
of commitment to special collections, archives, or academic libraries as
demonstrated by work experience (including internships), coursework, or
memberships in professional associations. Demonstrated ability to work

interpersonal, oral and written communication, and organizational skills.
Experience with web page creation and management. Demonstrated aptitude for
quantitative and qualitative data analysis and other assessment methods.

  
Preferred:

Long Civil Rights Movement.
