  * Work closely with the Library Information Technology Department on implementing technical solutions that enhance discovery and access.
  * Advise on the development of automated workflows for metadata creation, extraction, transformation, quality control, syndication, and ingest.
  * Lead research and development efforts on linked data initiatives that maximize exposure and access to collections.
  * Network, collaborate and actively participate in national organizations, contributing to discussions about the emerging and dynamic role of metadata in providing access to information resources and the development of resource discovery tools and services.
  * Design and implement metadata audits of new and existing collections.
  * Develop and implement metrics to assess the value and impact of metadata and cataloging activities for discovery and timely access to Libraries' resources.
  * Develop documentation and instructional materials, and provide metadata training, consultation, and support.
Required Qualifications:

  * Advanced degree in a field related to the position (e. g., MLS from an ALA-accredited institution, MA in informatics or information management, etc.).
  * For appointment at the Specialist Librarian level, three or more years of experience with descriptive or structural and administrative metadata in a library-related or higher education setting.
  * Appointment at the Expert Librarian level requires a history of professional achievement at the national level.

  * Knowledge of a variety of tools and techniques used in creating, extracting, and transforming metadata.
  * Knowledge of Semantic Web technologies and familiarity with one or more related standards such as RDF, RDFS, OWL, and SPARQL.
