Department: Digital Services and Technologies
Benefits:       22 Days Annual Leave, 15 Days of Sick Leave, 3 Days Personal Leave, 15 Paid Holidays, Tuition Remission, Health, Dental, Vision, and Prescription

As the largest university library system in the Washington D.C.-Baltimore area, the University of Maryland Libraries serve more than 37,500 students and 4,200 faculty of the flagship College Park campus. The University of Maryland Libraries share the teaching, learning and research goals of the university. Its role as a key academic resource is evident in its service to the academic community and its actionable strategic plan. Recent membership in the Big Ten Academic Alliance is particularly meaningful to the University Libraries and will further propel the university’s ascendancy in academic excellence.

Reporting to the Associate Dean, Digital Services and Technologies (DST), the Web Services Librarian is charged with leadership, project management, and hands-on work related to the planning, coordination, design, implementation, maintenance, and evaluation of the Libraries’ web site and other major online user interfaces. The Web Services Librarian will work closely with all library divisions to improve the Libraries' virtual environment and the Libraries’ Web presence, and will lead regular Online User Interfaces (OUI) Committee meetings throughout the academic year to facilitate communication, content creation and maintenance, and coordination of Web-related needs and functions. This position may also be assigned to direct the work of temporary staff or part-time student assistants and interns, when the work is related to special projects or tasks falling primarily in the Web Services functional area.

The Web Services Librarian will set and apply design standards and best practices for all public-facing interfaces to ensure that library resources are accessible and user-centered. In addition to seeking the input of Research and Academic Services’ members, the incumbent will collaborate and coordinate closely with the Director of Strategic Communications and Outreach, the Collection Services and Strategies (CSS) group, and Digital Services and Technologies (DST) Web designers and developers. The Web Services Librarian will communicate requirements and design needs with the technical development team and will check in with that team on a regular basis to adjust and revise requirements, as needed. The successful applicant will participate in usability and functional testing and quality assurance of all related sites and applications, working closely with the UX Librarian. The Web Services Librarian will work with library administration and management to develop a vision and a philosophy for the Libraries’ Web presence, which will drive most of the sites’ architecture, organization, and design.

As a cross-library position, the Web Services Librarian is responsible for overall analysis, design, integration, content coordination, and evaluation of the Libraries' online user interfaces. Where appropriate, this includes implementation, integration, evaluation, and improvement of user-interface customizations and integrations of proprietary library products affecting: discovery/searching of information resources, interlibrary loan, room reservations, library research guides, and other functional areas. The team works closely with the DST’s Digital Programs and Initiatives (DPI) team to integrate open source and open access platforms into the Libraries’ interfaces, and to develop digital content, when appropriate. 

MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS:
•    Master’s degree in related field. 
•    Minimum of 1+ year of professional experience in Web services design, development, and testing in a library environment.
•    Strong project management experience
•    Broad knowledge of a wide range of IT issues, Web development methods, requirements, and procedures 
•    Experience working within Unix/Linux variant server environments with basic system administration utilities 
•    Experience in information architecture, taxonomy/ontology creation, and writing of content for the Web
•    Knowledge of SQL- and database-driven Web sites and applications
•    Knowledge of usability design and assessment
•    Knowledge of current Web accessibility standards and how these standards affect Web design and patron access
•    Knowledge of responsive Web design
•    Ability to work both independently and as part of a team
•    Excellent oral, written, and interpersonal communication skills
•    Initiative, flexibility, organization, precision, and excellent problem-solving skills
