**Description:**  
  
In support of the increased reliance on access to scholarly electronic
resources in NYU's creation of a Global Network University, the Electronic
Resource Metadata Management Librarian will bring leadership and expertise to
the deployment of metadata that enable end-user access to electronic resources
via the NYU Division of Libraries' integrated discovery and access systems.
Based in the Resource Management Department of Knowledge Access and Resource
Management Services (KARMS), the Electronic Resource Metadata Management
Librarian works collaboratively with staff in KARMS, particularly the
Electronic Resources Collections Librarian and members of the KARMS Knowledge
Access Design and Development Department, as well as staff in other areas of
the library to coordinate a metadata management strategy for NYU Libraries
electronic resources.

  
Knowledge Access and Resource Management Services facilitates the teaching,
learning, and research endeavors of the Libraries' user communities through
processes and services in program areas that include library acquisitions,
serials and electronic resource management, knowledge access design and
development, and metadata production and management. In collaboration with our
colleagues in Collections and Research Services, Public Services, Libraries IT
Services, and Digital Library Technology Services, KARMS has primary
leadership responsibility for knowledge access via the Libraries' dynamic,
integrated discovery and access systems. In addition to serving NYU's central
libraries, institute libraries, and global sites, KARMS provides selected
services to Research Library Association of South Manhattan member libraries
and other affiliated libraries.

  
Under the general supervision of the Head of Resource Management, the
successful candidate will:

  
• Define, implement, document, evaluate, and refine a coordinated metadata
management strategy for NYU Libraries electronic resources that includes
approaches for managing catalog record supply chains, multiple processing
streams, and knowledge base management activities

  
• Develop, implement, document, evaluate, and routinize electronic-resource
processing workflows to achieve timely end-user discovery of and access to
newly licensed electronic resources; analyze, design, and implement scripts
and methods for electronic-resource metadata processing, transformation, and
ingest; collaborate with colleagues on workflow automation using tools and
languages such as MacroExpress, XPath, Perl, PHP, Python, or Ruby

  
• Assist the Head of Resource Management with the preparation of management
reports and the provision of statistical and budget analyses related to
electronic resources

  
• Participate in electronic resource use studies conducted by NYU Libraries in
order to guide the ongoing development of systems, services, and interfaces
designed to optimize electronic resource discovery and access

  
• Provide leadership to the NYU Libraries as a whole in developing and
maintaining awareness of emerging technologies, standards, and technical
issues related to the acquisition, licensing, access, and use of electronic
resources and associated metadata

  
Collections curated, managed, interpreted, and preserved by the NYU Libraries
include in round numbers 5 million book volumes, 100,000 serial subscriptions
including 90,000 electronic journals, 800,000 electronic books, 30,000 linear
feet of archival materials, 1,700,000 photographs or photo negatives, well
over 100,000 audio and video recordings in a variety of physical formats, and
250,000 digital resources (occupying over 100 terabytes) in about 30
collections. As NYU Libraries devote more resources to acquiring electronic
resources to support NYU's international approach to study and research, the
Electronic Resource Metadata Management Librarian will play a key role in
providing consistent access to library resources throughout the NYU global
system. To that end, the Libraries currently deploy the Ex Libris Aleph
integrated library system, the Innovative Interfaces Electronic Resource
Management System, and the Ex Libris SFX OpenURL link resolver.

  
**Qualifications:**  
  
Minimum of three years experience with electronic resource metadata enabling
discovery and access in a research library; strong service orientation and
knowledge of user needs; excellent communication and interpersonal skills;
excellent planning and organizational skills; demonstrated experience in
developing and implementing complex processing workflows; experience
performing data analysis on a variety of data formats; in-depth experience
with library discovery and access systems, particularly those related to
e-resource access such as OpenURL resolution systems.

  
Preferred: experience with one or more of the suite of Ex Libris products
(Primo, Aleph, Metalib, SFX); experience working in Linux/Unix server
environments; knowledge of database architecture and SQL; experience with XML
and XSLT; knowledge of library technology protocols such as OAI-PMH, Z39.5-,
and SRU/W; experience writing scripts in common scripting languages such as
Perl, PHP, bash, Python, or Ruby; experience with Lucene/Solr.

MLS from an ALA-accredited program and a second master's degree required to be
eligible for tenure.
