quantitative, qualitative, and geospatial research at NYU. Data Services

Research Services Division of NYU Libraries.

  
The successful candidate will work collaboratively with colleagues in Data
Services, across the Division of Libraries, Information Technology Services,
and across NYU's Global Network University to provide access to spatial data
collections. He or she will research and select GIS data resources, support
spatial data preservation activities, and work with others to ensure that
discovery tools and metadata standards are in place and maintained for NYU's
GIS collections. In addition, the GIS Services Librarian will participate in
instruction and consultation activities related to the access, preparation,
and use of spatial data by NYU patrons.

  
NYU subject librarians serve as partners in the educational mission of the
University by establishing collaborative relationships with faculty; building
and curating collections in relevant formats; providing and developing
innovative services in support of research, teaching, and learning; and
teaching research strategies in a variety of contexts. Additionally, subject
librarians actively engage with faculty, publishers, and vendors to bring
about changes in the system of scholarly publishing and communications.
