Digital Preservation Librarian
University of Toronto
Toronto

The University of Toronto Libraries (UTL) system is the largest academic
library in Canada and is ranked third among peer institutions in North
America, behind just Harvard and Yale. The system consists of 44 libraries
located on three university campuses: St. George, Mississauga, and
Scarborough. This array of college libraries, special collections, and
specialized libraries and information centres supports the teaching and
research requirements of 215 graduate programs, over 60 professional programs,
and more than 700 undergraduate degree programs. More than 150,000 new print
volumes are acquired each year. The Libraries data centre houses more than 200
servers with a storage capacity of 1.5 petabytes.

  
  
About Scholars Portal:

  
Scholars Portal, a department within the University of Toronto Library, is the
digital service arm of the Ontario Council of University Libraries (OCUL),
managing infrastructure and services that support Ontario's 21 university
libraries. The Scholars Portal team of 24 librarians, developers, and systems
staff support services in four broad areas: research & member services; data
and geospatial services; digital collections; and digital preservation
services.

  
The Opportunity:

  
The University of Toronto Library invites applications for a Digital
Preservation Librarian. This individual will work as a member of the Scholars
Portal Team. Scholars Portal is mandated to manage and preserve the shared
collections of OCUL libraries. To support that mandate, Scholars Portal has
established a digital preservation program, including policies, procedures and
systems, to ensure for the long-term preservation of the extensive electronic
journal collections of OCUL. The digital preservation program of Scholars
Portal has been audited and certified as a Trusted Digital Repository (TDR)
using TRAC criteria based on the OAIS Reference Model.

  
The Scholars Portal Digital Preservation Librarian is responsible for ongoing
maintenance and review of the policies and practices of the SP TDR, ensuring
these are updated to reflect changes in processing of our journal collections.
S/he is also responsible for ongoing research into new tools and software to
support our preservation programs and to extend the TDR to encompass other
digital formats managed by Scholars Portal, including numeric and geospatial
data and electronic books. Specific projects include a review of Archivematica
as a processing tool for the formation of standard archival information
packages; development of a digital asset management system for managing
archival packages; exploration of options for web archiving for Scholars
Portal and OCUL; and development of hosted preservation services for OCUL
member libraries looking for ways to bring their local digital collections
under archival management. The Digital Preservation Librarian also acts as an
expert resource for OCUL libraries on preservation issues, working with OCUL
community groups such as the Digital Curation Community on sharing best
practices and identifying new services for OCUL.

  
The Digital Preservation Librarian requires a broad range of knowledge and
skills in digital preservation practice, acquired through course work and
hands on practice with managing a variety of digital formats. Knowledge of key
auditing standards including OAIS, TRAC, ISO16363, and DataPass as well as
implementation standards such as PREMIS, PRONOM, METS, LC BagIt and others is
critical for success in this position. Understanding of tools for file
identification and normalization , such as FITS, as well as tools for managing
digital objects, such as Fedora, would also be useful. Excellent writing and
presentation skills would be beneficial in the outreach work required for the
position with respect to supporting OCUL libraries in local digital
preservation initiatives.
