The University of Nevada, Las Vegas invites applications for a Cataloging and Metadata Strategies Librarian, University Libraries [18502]

PROFILE of the UNIVERSITY 
Founded in 1957, UNLV is a doctoral-degree-granting institution of approximately 29,000 students and 3,000 faculty and staff that is classified by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching as a research university with high research activity. UNLV offers a broad range of respected academic programs and is on a path to join the top tier of national public research universities.

The university is committed to enhancing efforts to attract and retain top students and faculty, educating the region's diversifying population and workforce, driving economic activity through increased research and community partnerships, and creating an academic health center for Southern Nevada that includes the launch of a new UNLV School of Medicine. UNLV is located on a 332-acre main campus and two satellite campuses in Southern Nevada.

Profile of the University Libraries 
As a strong partner in student learning, UNLV Libraries fosters critical thinking and lifelong learning with innovative services, entrepreneurial staff, outstanding digital collections, up-to-date technology and internationally renowned Special Collections, including two research centers: The Center for Gaming Research and The Oral History Research Center. University Libraries is comprised of Lied Library and three branch libraries and we are a gateway to more than 20,000 electronic journals and 1.7 million books, including e-books. We welcome individuals with diverse backgrounds to join our growing organization of over 120 experienced faculty librarians and staff members supporting teaching, learning, research and creative endeavors at one of the nation's fastest growing universities.

The Libraries are in the process of migrating to the Ex Libris Alma library services platform and Primo discovery layer.

COMMITMENT to DIVERSITY 
The successful candidate will demonstrate support for diversity, equity and inclusiveness as well as participate in maintaining a respectful, positive work environment.

ROLE of the POSITION 
Reporting to the Head of Discovery Services, the Cataloging and Metadata Strategies Librarian will work to enable timely, comprehensive and effective discovery of all Libraries' collections.

The Libraries' strategic plan sets direction for optimizing the growth, dissemination and discovery of the Libraries' diverse, multi-format and unique collections in several areas including regional collections and UNLV research outputs. The Cataloging and Metadata Strategies Librarian's specific portfolio will include MARC-based cataloging to support the discovery of these collections. Cataloging will be completed to local, national and international standards with original cataloging records contributed to OCLC WorldCat. To advance discovery initiatives and ensure metadata interoperability for these materials, the incumbent will also provide metadata oversight for the Libraries' institutional repository, [log in to unmask]

The Cataloging and Metadata Strategies Librarian will work with library catalogers to lead the strategic adoption of new standards and vocabularies for the library catalog and the remediation of metadata to meet current standards and vocabularies. To provide for consistent discovery of the Libraries' collections, the incumbent will also collaborate with library catalogers and other library departments with metadata responsibilities to address common authority control needs, especially in preparation for broader adoption of linked data.

The Cataloging and Metadata Strategies Librarian may also serve as the lead cataloger for additional specific portions of the Libraries' collections to be assigned based on the candidate's interests and skill set within the context of the priorities of the Libraries and the Libraries' strategic plan.

As a faculty member, the incumbent will be expected to engage in scholarly activities and to provide service to the university, community, and profession in accordance with UNLV and University Libraries standards for promotion and tenure.

Preferred qualifications:

Supervisory experience.
Experience with the Ex Libris Alma library services platform and Primo discovery layer.
Experience in a specialized area of cataloging such as health sciences (using NLM call numbers and MeSH), government documents, or serials.

This is a full-time, 12-month, tenure-track position at Rank II (tenure-track) or Rank III (tenured); ranks equivalent to an Assistant or Associate Professor. Salary range starts at $ 65,000 - salary is negotiable and commensurate with experience and qualifications.

Salaries are competitive with those at similarly situated institutions and dependent upon labor market. Positions are contingent upon funding.
