Overview

The Center for Jewish History is a collaborative home to five Partner institutions: the American Jewish Historical Society, American Sephardi Federation, Leo Baeck Institute, Yeshiva University Museum and YIVO Institute for Jewish Research. The Center for Jewish History and Partner collections span five thousand years, with tens of millions of archival documents, more than 500,000 volumes, in addition to thousands of artworks, textiles, ritual objects, recordings, films, and photographs. When the Center opened its doors twenty years ago, it made a commitment to preserve the collections housed within its walls and make them accessible to scholars, students, and diverse audiences by realizing a unique, shared services model across all five partners.

From 2018-2020, the Center implemented a new digital asset management and preservation system, Ex Libris’ Rosetta, to replace the Center’s previous system Digitool. As part of the implementation, over 50 terabytes of digital assets were migrated to Rosetta.  The Center seeks a systems-focused librarian tasked with the maintenance of the shared system and the ongoing improvement of the digital assets found within the system.  

The Librarian will report to the Senior Manager for Metadata and Discovery. The successful candidate will work closely with department members in Metadata and Discovery Services, the Center’s Information Technology Department, vendors, and stakeholders in the Center and Partner community to ensure that assets and their corresponding description will be preserved in perpetuity. The position is full-time and exempt.

Oversee a robust, proprietary digital asset management and preservation system to ensure the Center and Partner institutions can continue to build a diverse array of digital holdings that is free to the public and available online across the globe.  
Together with colleagues in Metadata and Discovery Services, expand functionality and facilitate interoperability between our digital asset management system, the Center’s other shared library systems, and external data-sharing exchanges.
Serve as primary contact with Ex Libris and external contacts related to the maintenance of the digital asset management and preservation system.  
Work collaboratively with Center and Partner staff to analyze, remediate, and troubleshoot new and migrated digital assets.
Maintain an in-house developed processor tool, written in Python, that assists Center and Partner staff to create and submit deposits into the system as part of an automated and mediated workflow.
Collaborate with Center and Partner colleagues on expanding existing digital preservation policy and planning, especially as policies are facilitated or enforced via our digital asset management system.
Participate in the Rosetta user community and larger digital preservation community, including monitoring the developments and professional best practices in digital asset management, digital preservation, and related topics.

ALA-accredited graduate degree or accredited graduate degree in another appropriate discipline, such as computer science, digital preservation and curation, or archival science with a specialization in digital archives. 
Comfort and proficiency in performing work within and outside of a digital asset or content management system to improve, audit, and optimize assets for public and staff use.

Proven capacity to foster and facilitate the work of others in using library systems or platform.
Familiarity with current standards used in libraries, archives, and museums for description and preservation, including Dublin Core, MAchine-Readable Cataloging (MARC), Resource Description and Access (RDA), and Encoded Archival Description (EAD).
