Department Coordinator and Analyst, Digital Library + Labs
New York Public Library
New York City

Position Description:

Overview:

  
The New York Public Library's new Digital Library + Labs department is seeking
its newest member: a hybrid department coordinator and data wrangler.

  
  
  
This is a perfect opportunity for an enthusiastic, problem-solving individual
interested in the full digital library lifecycle: from digitization workflow
to the creation of user-engagement tools and public programs. The position
entails a mix of office management responsibilities with broader assessment,
evaluation, and chronicling duties. Basically: help us identify how we can be
more effective and efficient, then put it into action. Passionate interest in
the future of libraries a must.

  
  
  
Reporting to the Director of Digital Library + Labs, the candidate will help
coordinate efficient operations among a number of units within the department
(Digital Imaging, Metadata Services, Permissions & Reproductions, and NYPL
Labs) as well as with other Library departments and personnel. He/she will be
responsible for helping the department create measurement and assessment tools
of its various functions, and will help frame how those functions are
described within the Library and to the broader public. They will also play a
key role in developing assessment tools and methods around emergent library
activity areas such as content partnerships (e.g. DPLA, HathiTrust),
crowdsourcing initiatives, and developer community engagement. The ability to
juggle many tasks and scheduling for a department of 26 is paramount, as is
the ability to think broadly across all of the department's functions.

  
  
  
About NYPL's Digital Library and Labs program:

  
  
  
Based dually at The New York Public Library's landmark central branch on 42nd
Street, and at its cutting-edge services center in Long Island City, the
Digital Library + Labs program is a multi-unit team working to re-imagine
digital collections, creativity, and user engagement in the Internet age. The
department works closely with librarians, curators, archivists, and library
technologists and UX specialists to create imaginative tools and experiences
around library content and services. The department combines core digital
production capacities (digitization, metadata, permissions/reproductions etc.)
with a vigorous public engagement mission, with a particular emphasis on user
participation and the exploration of new forms of digital research and
creativity. The Department Coordinator and Analyst would be joining an amazing
creative team working at the crossroads of public-sector technology and
cultural heritage in New York, and in a global community. In addition, a great
benefits package, ample vacation time, and a sane life/work balance all make
NYPL a fantastic place to work and create.
