Visiting Digital Publishing Specialist
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
Champaign

Position Available: The expected start date is as soon as possible after the
closing date. This is a 100%, 3-Year Visiting Academic Professional
appointment, with the potential of becoming permanent.

  
Responsibilities: The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign seeks an
innovative and motivated professional to serve in the position of Visiting
Digital Publishing Specialist. Reporting to the Head of Scholarly
Communications and Publishing, the Digital Publishing Specialist will provide
the Library's Scholarly Communications and Publishing Unit with project
management and production workflow support as part of the Library's effort to
offer high quality, open access publishing services to the Urbana-Champaign

Mellon-funded "Publishing Without Walls" initiative
(https://news.illinois.edu/blog/view/6367/256174).

  
This position performs document modelling and text-structure cleanup processes
along with administering the day-to-day coordination and completion of digital
publishing projects. The incumbent will interact with other members of the

the unit head and the research programmer, troubleshoot and streamline digital
publishing production workflows. She or he will also assist in developing new
publishing projects.

  
As a member of the Scholarly Communication and Publishing Unit, the Digital

highly collaborative program that also includes the Scholarly Commons

growing researcher metrics program.

  
Specific Responsibilities Include:

  
● Assisting in the definition of project scope and
objectives, involving all relevant stakeholders and ensuring technical
feasibility.

● Communicating with publishing partners regarding content
and features of online publications.

● Establishing and managing internal communications for the
launch of new digital publications.

● Evaluating feasibility of emerging formats and workflows
for digital publishing to guide integration into the library's evolving
scholarly publishing toolkit.

● Creating and documenting procedures for preparing and
loading content into digital publishing platforms, including conversion of
draft-format publications into final format, to ensure consistent practice
across unit and library.

● Converting and preparing materials for online publication,
including creation of metadata, formatting of text documents, and running
scripts to convert from PDF, InDesign, or Microsoft Word format (among
others).

● Proofreading for obvious structural, grammatical, or
stylistic errors.

● Editing and creating simple web sites for publications
using HTML and CSS templates.

● Assisting in educating authors about the publishing
process.

● Other related duties, as assigned.

  
Academic Professional employees are encouraged to use "investigation time" to
pursue areas of interest, not directly in support of an immediate program
need, in accordance with the University Library's policy on Investigation Time
for Academic Professional Employees . Some investigations originating in this
manner may evolve into regular work assignments or production activities.

  
Environment: The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) Library is
a leader in the delivery of user services, and active programs in information,
instructional, access, and scholarly services that help the Library to
maintain its place at the intellectual heart of the campus. The Library also
holds one of the preeminent research collections in the world, encompassing
more than 13 million volumes and a total of more than 23 million items. The
Library is committed to maintaining the strongest collections and service
programs possible, and to engaging in research, development, and scholarly
practice - all of which support the University's missions of teaching,
research, and public engagement. The Library employs approximately 90 faculty
members, and more than 300 academic professionals, staff, and graduate
assistants. For more information, see: http://www.library.illinois.edu/.

  
The Scholarly Communication and Publishing Unit synthesizes a wide range of
expertise in both traditional and non-traditional areas of library practice
associated with every aspect of the scholarly communication cycle, including
consultations in the preparation of scholarly articles and other outputs,
consultations related to intellectual property and copyright, digital
archiving of intermediate-stage scholarly work, compliance with Open Access
mandates and policies, and establishment and maintenance of new publishing
platforms and publication workflow processes for direct Open Access publishing
of final-stage scholarship.

  
Required Qualifications:

  
● Bachelor's degree

● Strong computer literacy skills in desktop word processing
and database applications (e.g., MySQL)

● Demonstration of strong organizational skills and attention
to detail

  
● Experience with creating and maintaining documentation

● Experience managing projects, prioritizing among multiple
projects, and meeting deadlines

● Familiarity with content management systems (e.g.,
WordPress, Drupal, etc.)

● Demonstrated ability to work collaboratively in teams and
with users

  
  
Desired Qualifications:

  
● Strong ability and desire to learn new technologies

● Experience with markup languages, document modelling,
and/or establishing data conversion and cleanup workflows

● Service orientation toward helping others use technology to
accomplish their work

● Strong written communication skills and an ability to
explain technical information to a non-technical audience

● Familiarity with InDesign or other typesetting software

● Familiarity with the publication process or digital
libraries

  
Salary and Rank: Salary is competitive and commensurate with experience and
credentials.
