Duties and Responsibilities

Loyola University Chicago Libraries seeks nominations and applications to identify user-focused and forward-thinking candidates for the position of Metadata Technologies Librarian. This position will coordinate metadata creation, cleanup, editing, enhancement and migration, mapping and transformation across library platforms to promote interoperability and discovery; provide consultation, training, creation and maintenance of documentation, quality control, and investigate new tools and standards; serve as library liaison for one or more academic departments or programs; and participate in other library programming and information services. Loyola encourages applications from underrepresented groups and from those with diverse backgrounds and life experiences.

This is a non-tenured Library faculty position with opportunities for promotion. The successful candidate will be based on the Lake Shore campus.

Environment

Founded in 1870, Loyola is one of the nation’s largest Jesuit, Catholic universities. Loyola is a private, not-for-profit institution consisting of eleven schools and colleges with four locations in Chicagoland and a campus in Rome, Italy, providing educational services to approximately 16,000 students in undergraduate, graduate, and professional degree programs. The University enjoys robust enrollments, an outstanding reputation for the quality of its teaching, and an increasing level of research activity. Recognizing Loyola’s excellence in education, U.S. News and World Report has consistently ranked Loyola among the “top national universities” in its annual publications.

Like the University itself, Loyola’s libraries and archives are in a growth mode with new facilities and initiatives, such as the eCommons, Loyola’s institutional repository. With the opening of the $32 million Information Commons on the Lakeshore Campus in 2008, Loyola has one of the finest and most advanced academic library facilities in the Midwest. In addition to the Information Commons, the University Libraries includes Cudahy Library and the Library Storage Facility (LSF) at the main campus in Rogers Park, the Lewis Library at the Water Tower campus in downtown Chicago, and a library at the John Felice Rome Center in Italy. The University Libraries has an annual materials budget exceeding $6 million. Collections include nearly two million volumes, 430 databases, 60,000 journals, and a variety of physical and streaming media resources. The Libraries sponsors frequent cultural programs for the Loyola community and its neighbors. For additional information, please visit libraries.luc.edu.
