The Washington State University Libraries invites applications for Digital
Applications Librarian, a full-time, 12-month, 2.5-year grant-funded temporary
position with the possibility of extended funding located on the Pullman
campus. Start date for this position is negotiable but is
targeted for **July 1st, 2015**.

  
**Background:**  
  
**Mukurtu CMS** (http://mukurtu.org) is a free and open source community archive platform and content management system built on Drupal 7 and aimed at the specific needs of indigenous communities globally to manage, preserve, share and curate their digital cultural heritage. Mukurtu started as a grassroots community platform and has developed along with a growing user-base and will be fully open source with a 2.0 release in March 2015. This new position will focus on Mukurtu, highlighting the on-going commitment of the WSU Libraries to promote the ethical curation of cultural heritage materials across diverse settings through the newly formed Center for Digital Scholarship and Curation (CDSC).  
  
**Position Detail:**  
  
The Digital Applications Librarian is part of the CDSC's long term project
aimed at providing educational opportunities around digital curation,
preservation and content management, specifically to underserved
communities. The CDSC is the home for core digital
scholarship and curation projects across campus with a special eye toward
building out the libraries role and Mukurtu's capabilities. This position will
provide an exciting space for collaboration, innovation, and open-source tool
building through the continued development of Mukurtu CMS within a team
environment. The Digital Applications Librarian will work directly with CDSC
and Library staff to add features, update systems and integrate Mukurtu CMS
into the core Library systems and projects including supporting several tribal
communities nationwide in their use of the platform. This
position will also investigate new directions for the Mukurtu CMS software to
better serve current constituents and spur adoption of the platform into new
environments.

  
The successful applicant should be well versed in current digital library

in an agile development setting and work as a part of a support team. The
Digital Applications Librarian will play an integral role in designing,
developing, testing and deploying new features, modules and resources to
extend and enhance digital content and services through Mukurtu. This may
include such tasks as using existing application programming interfaces (APIs)
to facilitate multiple submission and access pathways all building from
Mukurtu related projects. The position may write and/or
modify code and will conduct quality assurance on code contributed by other
developers by ensuring the contributions match development expectations. In
all cases the Digital Applications Librarian will be an integral part of the
Mukurtu Support team for internal Library projects and community partners.

  
**Scholarship, Service, & Professional Development:**  
  
Participate in appropriate scholarship, faculty governance, and service as a
library faculty member; engage in library-wide initiatives as appropriate;
maintain current awareness of trends and advancements in academic
librarianship, and actively participate in appropriate meetings and
organizations.

  
**Minimum/Required Qualifications:**  
  
MLS or MLIS from an ALA-Accredited Library and Information Studies program at
date of hire; excellent interpersonal, verbal, written, organizational,
problem-solving and planning skills; ability to work creatively,
collaboratively, and effectively both as a team member and independently and
to promote teamwork among colleagues.

Familiarity with current trends in digital library initiatives and digital
curation.

applications are required and will include a cover letter addressing the
qualifications, a current resume, and complete contact information for three
current references. Finalists for this
position may be subject to a background check as a condition of
employment. Questions may be sent to the search committee
