Associate Director for the Digital Library
North Carolina State University
Raleigh

The NCSU Libraries has a well-earned reputation for creating adventurous
library spaces and innovative services that delight today's students and
researchers. The award-winning James B. Hunt Jr. Library, opened in 2013 on NC
State's Centennial Campus, offers faculty and students access to advanced
technologies such as large-scale visualization, simulated environments, 3D
imagery, and interactive computing that are enabling revolutionary ways to see
and use information. An iconic building that captures NC State's spirit of
innovation in education and research, the Hunt Library is recognized as one of
the world's most creative learning and collaborative spaces and a model for
"the library of the future". The D. H. Hill Library combines the best of
tradition and innovation, housing special collections and a beautiful gallery
alongside vibrant, experiential spaces such as the Learning Commons,
Technology Sandbox, Visualization Studio, and Makerspace. Plans for the future
include continued development of technology-rich spaces to bring advanced
capabilities to users of the Hill Library. If you are a person who would like
to provide a new generation of library users with everything they can imagine
and more, consider applying for this position.

  
The NCSU Libraries invites applications and nominations for the position of
Associate Director for the Digital Library. The Associate Director plays a
leading role in shaping the future of the NCSU Libraries as an essential
competitive advantage for learning and research. With administrative
responsibility for digital library strategy and technology in one of the
nation's most forward-thinking libraries, s/he leads in creating a cutting-
edge environment that enables students, faculty, and researchers to discover
and create new knowledge and develop multidisciplinary solutions to
contemporary problems. The Associate Director is a member of the senior
administrative team, reporting to the Director of Libraries.

  
Responsibilities:

The Associate Director for the Digital Library provides vision and leadership
for information technology; resource management and discovery; and digital
projects and associated research and development. The position serves as
administrator for three departments: Information Technology (23 FTE),

The Digital Library Division designs, develops, manages, and maintains a
flexible, reliable, and innovative technology environment that enables access
to research collections and facilitates user-centered services, along with a
robust computing and data storage infrastructure that supports the library as
both repository and research platform, both physically and virtually.

  
This position collaborates with the university's Office of Information
Technology and with Distance Education and Learning Technology Applications,
participates in the university's collaborative IT governance structure, and
builds relationships with other research and technology partners. S/he
represents the NCSU Libraries in the Triangle Research Libraries Network,
national forums, and international initiatives, and seeks opportunities for
partnerships with university faculty and external organizations, including
sponsored research. Current projects include leading the Global Open
Knowledgebase (GOKb) initiative, a Mellon-funded, multi-institutional
collaboration with partners from the United States and Europe to build and
share an open dataset of electronic resources information to benefit the
library community at large. As a member of the Libraries' senior
administrative team, the Associate Director participates in library planning,
policy development, resource allocation, and personnel management. NCSU
librarians are expected to be active professionally and to contribute to
developments in the field.
