Technical Collaboration Facilitator
Stanford University
Stanford

The Technology Collaboration Facilitator within the Stanford University
Libraries (SUL) serves as an expert in the software, standards, architectures
and models for technologies of use to Libraries, Archives and Museums (LAMs).
As part of its digital library strategy, SUL aggressively promotes and engages
with the technical communities in the LAM sector, with the objective of
developing mutually rewarding collaborations, development of shared solutions,
and convergence on common architectures, models and standards that advance
SUL's mission and services.

  
This position will serve as a vital conduit between SUL and the larger
technology community. As an expert technologist, the Technology Collaboration
Facilitator will demonstrate exceptional depth and breadth of issues and
solutions in this space, and the ability to quickly come up to speed in new
areas. As an advocate, the incumbent will do outreach, training and
dissemination of emerging technologies within Stanford and to other LAM
institutions. As an ambassador, s/he will identify and broker connections,
collaborations and opportunities for convergence and reuse of existing
technologies.

developers (open source and commercial). Assist new adopters and integrators
with implementation and issues. Produce and maintain public documentation and
demonstrators of both specifications. (30%).

  
Cross-pollinate sites and projects with technological expertise; serve as a
vector for capturing and diffusing know how among the LAM community via
reports, blog postings, proposed designs, recommended collaborations,
conducting trainings, organizing workshops, and producing "state of the art"
reports on emerging issues and solutions. Orchestrate the annual LDCX
Conference at Stanford. (30%)

  
Engage in strategic LAM technology projects in any of various possible
capacities: architect, data modeler, prototype developer, engineer, evaluator,
documentation writer / trainer, evangelist and advocate for collaboration and
convergence. Identify and articulate opportunities for definition of or
convergence on standards, adaptation of existing code, and cross-project
synergies. Arrange for inter-institutional code sprints on projects of common
interest. (20%)

  
Track and, as appropriate, contribute to known and emerging best practices in
digital resource access for both human and machine users, such as W3C
standards, RDF, linked data, Open Annotation, and schema.org. (15%).

  
Conduct site visits, detailed exploration of other projects, and consulting
for specified LAM initiatives. Identify opportunities to use and contribute to
existing community efforts (5%).
