TRLN Technology Initiatives Coordinator (At Will Appointment)
University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Chapel Hill

The Triangle Research Libraries Network (TRLN) seeks a collaborative, tech-
savvy, and highly motivated individual to join our team as a Technology
Initiatives Coordinator. A newly-envisioned position, the TRLN Technology
Initiatives Coordinator will work closely with talented librarians,
technologists, and developers across four academic institutions to lead the
development of a variety of applications and systems that support the
discovery and delivery of library materials owned by the four member
institutions in support of research and instruction for faculty, staff and
students at all four universities. The position will apply expert skills to
help solve some of the complex issues facing academic libraries today and to
anticipate future opportunities.

  
Reporting to the TRLN Executive Director, the person in this position will
play a major role in the support of both established and emerging technology-
focused projects. The TRLN Technology Initiatives Coordinator will provide
leadership in the development, implementation and maintenance, as well as the
design and evaluation, of these projects that support cooperative collection
development and collaborative use of research library materials. A key
component of the position is working with TRLN staff and programmatic councils
to set priorities and to evaluate and communicate progress to campus
communities.

  
The TRLN staff includes an Executive Director, a Program Officer, and an
Administrative Assistant, all of whom work closely with colleagues across the
consortium. Our central staff provides support for the broad spectrum of
consortial initiatives and activities. Our organizational values include
collaboration, flexibility, creativity, and responsiveness to the evolving
role of academic libraries and consortia.

  
The focus of the work initially will be leading a major enhancement of our
shared library materials discovery index and interface, Search TRLN, which is
built on the Oracle Endeca platform. The shared discovery index and interface
will be transitioning from Endeca to a new platform (such as Blacklight or
VUFind), and the Technology Initiatives Coordinator will take primary
responsibility for advising on and implementing the new system in consultation
with librarians and administrators from the four campuses.

  
Separate from but related to the shared discovery index and interface, we also
are exploring tools and systems to support direct patron borrowing across our
institutions, and the Technology Initiatives Coordinator will be responsible
for implementing applications to support this service. These and other
projects will require collection and analysis of data for implementation as
well as monitoring and assessment.

  
The position requires close collaboration with technical staff at our four
member institutions, not only to ensure seamless integration with local
systems, but also to ensure shared responsibility for the process and the
products.

  
The person in this position will also be expected to contribute to other
technology-focused activities and initiatives as they arise, such as
management and sharing of electronic materials and development of components
of a new TRLN web site.
