The University of California, Berkeley seeks a Digital Archivist to assist

The Environment

  
The UC Berkeley Library is an internationally renowned research and teaching
facility at one of the nation's premier public universities. In a highly
diverse and intellectually rich 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 and build their related research skills.

  
The Bancroft Library is one of the largest and most heavily used libraries of
rare materials in the West. Its holdings include more than 600,000 volumes;
60,000,000 manuscripts (60,000 linear feet); 8,200,000 photographs and other
pictorial materials; 86,000 microforms; 300,000 digital images; and 35,000
maps, as well as numerous other categories of unique material. The two largest
collections are the Bancroft Collection of Western and Latin Americana, and
the Rare Books Collection. The latter comprises approximately 100,000 volumes
ranging from a substantial collection of Egyptian papyri from as early as 2000
B.C. through medieval and early modern manuscripts and books (including more
than four hundred incunabula) to important holdings in more recent periods of
European, English, and American culture in such diverse fields as modern fine
typography, contemporary poetry (concentrating on California poets), and
certain major modern British and American authors. The Rare Books Collection
has special emphases on the Enlightenment and on books by and about women from
the fifteenth century to the present. It also includes collections of fine
bindings, medieval and early modern manuscripts, pamphlets documenting the
French Revolution, and African-American literature. Bancroft is also home to
four research groups: the Regional Oral History Office; the Mark Twain Papers;
the Center for the Tebtunis Papyri; and the Magnes Collection of Jewish Art
and Life.
