Hiring range: Associate Librarian I - Associate Librarian V

$49,464 - $62,220 per annum, based upon qualifications

This is a full-time appointment available starting August 2013.

  
The University of California, Berkeley seeks a highly motivated, innovative,
and service-oriented librarian with GIS experience to maintain and expand our
map and geospatial data collections and services. The GIS & Map Librarian will
work closely with a cross-unit team of colleagues from a range of disciplines
who are interested in building and promoting the Library's e-research and data
services.

  
The Environment

  
Berkeley serves a campus community of 25,500 undergraduate students, 10,300
graduate students, and a faculty of 1,500. The Library comprises 20 campus
libraries - including the Doe/Moffitt Libraries, the Bancroft Library, the C.
V. Starr East Asian Library and subject specialty libraries. With a collection
of more than 11 million volumes and a collections budget of over $15 million,
the Library offers extensive collections in all formats and robust services to
connect users with those collections.

  
The map and geospatial data collections are housed presently in the Earth
Sciences & Map Library. This is one of eight science and engineering libraries
reporting to the Associate University Librarian and Director of Subject
Specialty Libraries. The map collection consists of more than 475,000 printed
maps and air photos, more than 25,000 scanned maps, and a growing collection
of geospatial data. The Library's GIS program consists of data collection and
dissemination, development of the Library's GeoData@UC Berkeley repository and
collaboration in campus-wide GIS activities. Our map and
geospatial data collections are heavily used by researchers from a range of
disciplines and also help support the University's recently launched GIS
minor.

  
Responsibilities

  
The GIS & Map Librarian has primary responsibility for building and
maintaining the Library's map and geospatial data collections, and leading the
Library's GIS program. Serves as selector and liaison for Geography.
Collaborates with other libraries within UC and regionally on collection
development. Plans and provides a suite of services including reference,
consultations, and instruction on using map collections, finding and managing
geospatial data, understanding spatial concepts and analysis, and using GIS
software. Develops websites and online guides related to these collections and
services. Promotes the use of maps and geospatial data in teaching and
research through outreach to campus faculty and students. Serves as team
leader for our geospatial digital projects (including map scanning projects,
our online map viewer, and GeoData@UC Berkeley) in collaboration with the Open
Geoportal Consortium. Creates metadata records for geospatial data in our
geoportal, performs original cataloging for maps/atlases, and oversees
map/atlas copy cataloging. Collaborates with other librarians and library
staff from our science and engineering libraries and Library Data Lab on our
growing e-research and data services programs.
