Subject: Position announcement: interface/user testing specialist at Univ of
Michigan (repost)

The University of Michigan Library is seeking an energetic, enthusiastic
individual to be part of the Digital Library Production Service (DLPS) team
involved in creating, deploying, and supporting the local digital library
collections. The DLPS Interface and User Testing Specialist is primarily
responsible for design and assessment of access mechanisms (e.g. entry
points, organization, effective displays) for a broad variety of DLPS
systems. DLPS provides production-level support for digital library
collections in a number of subject areas and formats. Online collection
resources include significant image- and text-based journal collections, art
image collections, and a leading edge XML development effort. Staff members
within DLPS assume responsibility for creating access mechanisms, data
loading, security, accounting and billing mechanisms, as well as creation
and conversion activities. DLPS provides these services to the University of
Michigan as well as other institutions, and works with the Digital Library
Federation (DLF) to advance the development of sound digital libraries.
Among the areas supported are electronic journals; monograph and serial
publications converted to page image format; art and other cultural heritage
images, including objects from the Papyrology collection and Kelsey Museum
of Archaeology; numeric; and a variety of published collections in XML and
SGML. Further information may be found at
