The University Library at the University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill is seeking an applications analyst to join the Carolina Digital
Repository (CDR) Development Team in the Library and Information Technology

The position works with library staff and campus partners to address their
business needs, while coordinating with other developers, system

work life balance. The CDR Development group has created graphical
visualizations of repository materials, interactive administrative web
applications, and engaged in rapid prototyping activities in order to respond
to and improve workflows for its users, while also seeking to contribute back
to multiple open-source communities of technologists and professionals.

The Carolina Digital Repository is a digital archive for materials produced by
members of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill community. The goal
