Two Davison Art Center Imaging Project Specialists will prepare images and
metadata in connection with rapid digital photography of original prints for a
fixed term of six weeks beginning June 17, 2013, working 36 hours per week.
These temporary positions report to the DAC Manager of Museum Information
Services, who directs the project. All work will take place at the Davison Art
Center. The term of work will commence June 17 and entail 36 hours each week
(Monday-Thursday, 8:30-12:30 and 1:00-6:00; no work on July 4 or on Fridays),
through July 25, 2013. Pay range will be $18.00-$25.00 per hour, based on
experience and qualifications.

  
Responsibilities include:

  
Work in a precise, efficient, and collegial manner as part of a small team of
project employees, collaborating closely with a fellow Imaging Project
Specialist, the Imaging Project Photographer, and undergraduate employees.

  
Process images (rotate, crop, etc.) following standard DAC workflows with
great consistency and attention to detail.

  
Check certain cataloging metadata for photographed objects against published
standards and follow procedures for handling or referring any apparently
needed updates.

  
Embed metadata, including descriptive metadata from the DAC's collection
management system, into image files; update that system's information about
those image files; and perform other standard procedures with metadata.

  
Confirm the quality of images and associated metadata.

  
Execute standard procedures to prepare images for DAC Collection Search and
DAC Open Access Images online.

  
If and as may be requested as the project proceeds, flexibly shift to
performing other project functions.

  
Minimum Qualifications

B.A./B.S., ideally in a related arts, humanities, or technical field. Ability
to work with extreme attention to procedural detail and to the quality of
images and metadata. Ability to work collegially in a small team with
ambitious production goals. Familiarity with standards-based metadata work,
and a willingness to learn and apply such community standards in locally
directed ways. Experience with color-managed image processing in Adobe
Lightroom, Photoshop, and/or other software. Ability to work efficiently in
Mac OS X.

  
Competencies:

Functional/technical skills

Meticulous attention to detail

Interpersonal skills/savvy

Teamwork/collaboration

Integrity and trust

Organizational skills

Time management

  
Preferred Qualifications

Master's degree or some Master's coursework in museum or library studies, or
in information or imaging science, or equivalent professional experience.
History of work with reproductive images of original prints, rapid-capture
workflows, technical image metadata, and/or handling of matted works of art on
paper. Experience using a museum collection information system, ideally
EmbARK. Familiarity with museum cataloging authorities such as the Union List
of Artist Names. Ability to lift art storage boxes weighing as much or more
than 40 pounds may be useful, but is not required. A history of involvement
with a technically engaged professional community in the cultural heritage
sector would be a plus, as would a reading knowledge of Italian and/or French
in an art historical context.
