research and teaching at NYU and to provide vision and leadership as we
continue to grow our data services.

NYU Data Services. Data Services offers access to specialty software packages;
statistical, geospatial, and qualitative data analysis training and support;
and consulting expertise in the use of numeric, qualitative, and spatial data
for research, including data access, analysis, collection, data management,
and preservation. This position reports to the Social Sciences Coordinator/Co-

of New York University Libraries.

  
The Data Services Librarian will bring substantive experience and leadership
to the NYU Data Services as we chart a course in creating and sustaining a
rapidly evolving set of services that meet our users' needs. She/he will
select, acquire, manage, and deliver licensed, free, and researcher-generated
numeric data collections to support campus research and scholarship; work with

NYU's official representative to ICPSR, the Roper Center, and others. In
collaboration with the Research Data Management Librarian, she/he will also
develop a service framework for working with researchers to manage their data
throughout the lifecycle, including preparation for archiving and
preservation. Depending upon the background of the candidate, she/he may also
serve as liaison librarian to one or more programs or departments, selecting
materials and providing services to support the research and teaching of
faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students in said areas.

  
The Data Services Librarian will participate in library-wide committees,
activities, and special projects, especially those involving new technologies
and data. The incumbent will develop and maintain awareness of data-centered
initiatives across the sciences, attending professional meetings, workshops
and conferences for training and continuing professional development.
