incorporates digital content into libraries' collections and

and online learning.

Harvard University's centralized IT organization. The Harvard Library is

Reflecting President Drew Faust's vision of "One Harvard", in which the rich

of its parts, the Harvard Library is becoming "One Library". Emerging
technologies are playing a major role in changing the ways in which
scholarship is pursued and transforming teaching and learning. The Chief
Technology Strategist will contribute to the development of Harvard Library's
services in online learning; data curation; Open Access; digitization of
collection; use of social media; new
learning spaces which support collaboration, experimentation, and creative
expression; and its partnerships with faculty and others in research projects.
