As part of our team of librarians, scholars, and software engineers, you will
work on the cutting edge of the open access movement to make academic research

This position is part technical; you will work closely with software
developers to maintain and improve our repository, and research new
technological directions for tools to support open access.
But it also has a big education and outreach component; working closely with
the program manager, you will serve as a front-line representative of the OSC

  * Hire and supervise administrative assistant; students; interns, etc. Assist with writing performance reviews and managing career development opportunities

  * Generally requires reading knowledge or competency with one or more foreign languages
  * Strong analytical and communication skills required
  * Strong Microsoft office Suite and web editing skills
  * Some Unix scripting ability preferred
  * Frequent use of a computer keyboard and mouse
Additional Information The Harvard Library Office for
Scholarly Communication was formed in 2008 with a charge to the Library from
the Harvard Provost to spearhead campus-wide initiatives to open, share, and
preserve scholarship.The OSC benefits from the oversight of a University-wide
faculty advisory committee that provides advice on specific programs and
policies.

  
With support from OSC, open-access policies are now in place in most of the
Harvard schools. These policies were voted on by the faculty and grant an
automatic license to Harvard for scholarly articles authored by faculty
members.

  
Digital Access to Scholarship at Harvard (DASH) is the University wide, open-
access, repository used to house articles that fall under the faculty open
access policies. Visitors to DASH can locate, read, and use up-to-the-minute
scholarship from Harvard. DASH is crawled by search engines and indexes so a
broad range of communities have the ability to discover materials in DASH.
Faculty, or faculty assistants, have the ability to submit articles directly
to DASH. Articles can also be emailed to OSC or faculty can request a student
to help with the process.

  
OSC is undertaking many other activities related to open access, including
online distribution of PhD dissertations, and education and outreach to
faculty on the importance of the policies and the procedures for supporting
them. To learn more about OSC, please visit: http://osc.hul.harvard.edu/about
