TRLN Applications Analyst
The Triangle Research Libraries Network in Chapel Hill, NC is seeking a
full-time applications analyst. A newly-envisioned position, the TRLN
Analyst 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 our shared collections. The position will apply expert skills to help
solve some of the complex issues facing academic libraries today and to
anticipate future opportunities.
This position will play a major role in the support of both established and
emerging technology-focused projects. While the primary purpose of the
position is development, implementation and maintenance, the Applications
Analyst also will be involved in the design and evaluation of these
projects, working with TRLN staff and programmatic councils to set
priorities and to evaluate and communicate progress.
The focus of the work initially will be leading a major enhancement of our
shared 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 Applications Analyst will take primary responsibility for
developing and implementing the new system.
