Head of Cataloging &amp; Metadata | William &amp; Mary Libraries | Williamsburg, Virginia

 

William &amp; Mary Libraries seeks an innovative, thoughtful leader for the position of Head of Cataloging &amp; Metadata who loves problem solving, improving workflows, and collaborating with a team to improve the discovery of our library collections. This position provides leadership and coordination of cataloging and metadata services for the libraries while directly supervising 3.5 FTE who are engaged in cataloging print and physical media. This position will consult with the Content Services Team including acquisitions and e-resource management as well as the libraries at large while promoting a collaborative and cohesive work environment. Though we expect this position to handle original cataloging as part of their workflow, they will also be devoted to developing cataloging &amp; metadata policies, creating useful documentation, and initiating collaborative projects to increase usage of our electronic, digital, and physical materials by making them more easily accessible.

 

The Head of Cataloging &amp; Metadata will help coordinate projects for non-MARC metadata from our digital collections and establish and document relevant policies and procedures to ensure efficient workflows for all library content. Though the creation of MARC records is at the heart of our cataloging work, we also hope to move increasingly into new platforms where patrons can discover materials through initiatives such as linked data, BibFrame, and digital collections.  This position is part of the Libraries’ Content Services Team which includes acquisitions, cataloging, systems, continuing resources, budget &amp; finance, digital services, and collection development and is led by the Associate Dean for Collections &amp; Content Services. We seek someone who can collaborate successfully with their supervisor, the staff they supervise, and others in the team and library on their goals and responsibilities.

 

Some of the major responsibilities of this position include:

Perform original cataloging for various media using MARC records (RDA standards), BibFrame description, and possibly other standards as the catalog and discovery systems develop. Manage the libraries’ batch processing, analysis, and editing of records.
 Leading a small team of staff (6 FTE total, with 3.5 direct reports) to efficiently and thoughtfully analyze and complete work related to metadata and cataloging, establish best practices, and improve metadata and access to the libraries’ collections. Create a positive work environment which promotes values such as innovation and creativity, efficiency in handling projects, thoughtful listening and collaboration, and using data (including user studies) to make decisions.
Collaborate and consult with librarians and staff across the library consortia (including librarians at Colonial Williamsburg’s Rockefeller Library and the Law Library of William &amp; Mary) to develop consensus regarding priorities, goals, processes, and policies that provide consistency and improve access and usability for our collections.
Focus on forward thinking approaches to the discovery and use of library collections. Research current professional practices and trends. Keep abreast of vendor options and ideas that are developed by groups including OCLC, other academic libraries, and a broad range of web developers who might inform the way we provide access to our materials.
Contribute to library assessment activities and direct the collection of metrics for data services that help reflect the productivity and breadth of services provided by cataloging staff.

 

The College of William &amp; Mary values diversity and invites applications from underrepresented groups who will enrich the research, teaching and service missions of the university. The College is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer and encourages applications from women, minorities, protected veterans, and individuals with disabilities.

 

 

Required Qualifications 

Master of Library Science (MLS) or equivalent from an American Library Association accredited program or international equivalent.
Comprehensive knowledge of cataloging standards (MARC21, RDA, AACR2) and experience using tools such as MarcEdit, OCLC Connexion, and OpenRefine to perform original and complex copy cataloging.
Familiarity with existing and emerging metadata standards, models, applications, and initiatives, such as BIBFRAME, EAD, RDF, XML, Dublin Core, and linked data.
Demonstrates a strong commitment to promoting and enhancing diversity and inclusion.
 Experience cataloging more challenging formats (such as e-resources, gov docs, music scores, foreign languages, or special collections).

 

Preferred Qualifications               

Experience leading initiatives in resource description at a library-wide, system-wide, or regional level.
Evidence of leadership skills and innovative management with a strong commitment to fostering growth and development in others.
Experience preparing statistics and reports to help administrators and groups make data-informed decisions.

 

Advertised Pay Range    

$60,000 to $75,000 commensurate with experience
