The Columbia University Rare Book and Manuscript Library is searching for an
experienced archivist to process records of human rights organizations held by
the Center for Human Rights Documentation and Research. The collections will
include the records of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law
Southern Africa Project, Physicians for Human Rights, and Human Rights First.
The groups featured in this project offer important cases of how
professionally-focused groups mobilized to engage the human rights movement.
Human Rights First, founded as the Lawyers Committee for Human Rights, formed
in 1978 and leveraged key connections with the legal community and Columbia
Law School to pursue its advocacy. Physicians for Human Rights was founded in
1986 by a small group of doctors who brought their scientific expertise and
ethical convictions to bear on promoting human rights. The South Africa
Project of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law represented the
extension of a well-known civil rights group into the sphere of international
human rights, again with a focus on the legal profession. These collections
reflect the organizational diversity of the human rights movement and their
records will expand and enrich the study of human rights history.

Reporting to the Head, Archival Processing, the Project Archivist will be
responsible for the oversight of the arrangement and description of over 1000
linear feet of human rights records; identification and referral of items as
necessary for conservation treatment; and the preparation of EAD-encoded
finding aids and other descriptive access tools. The project archivist will
recruit and coordinate the activities of students that are assigned to assist
with arrangement and description the collections; assign tasks and monitor
pace and direction of work; maintain schedules and meet deadlines. The project
archivist submits regular reports on manuscript and archival processing.

One of the world's leading research universities, Columbia provides
outstanding opportunities to work and grow in a unique intellectual community.
Set in the Morningside Heights academic village, Columbia also presents the
unmatched dynamism, diversity and cultural richness of New York City. The
University Libraries, grounded in collections of remarkable depth and breadth,
are also building extensive electronic resources and services. The Libraries
at Columbia are committed to collegiality, professionalism, innovation, and
leadership.

  
Requirements:

M.L.S. from an ALA-accredited library school or graduate degree in history or
related discipline and experience arranging and describing archival
collections (or the equivalent combination of education and experience);
familiarity with the application of Greene and Meissner processing techniques;
familiarity with DACS, EAD, MARC, LCSH, AACR2, and appropriate metadata
standards and schema; familiarity with automated library information
management systems such as Endeavor/Voyager; knowledge of basic preservation
and conservation standards for archival and manuscript collections; a
demonstrated ability to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing;
excellent organizational skills, accuracy, and attention to detail; ability to
work independently and collaboratively in a production-oriented, team
environment; ability to work quickly, efficiently, and meet project goals and
deadlines.
