INDIANA UNIVERSITY LIBRARIES-BLOOMINGTON
Head, Cataloging Division, Technical Services Department
(Assistant Librarian, Associate Librarian, or Librarian)

The Indiana University Libraries-Bloomington seek an innovative,
experienced, and user-oriented professional to fill the position of
Head, Cataloging Division in the Technical Services Department of the
Herman B Wells Library.  This redefined senior management position has
an opportunity to play a strategic role in transforming the work of
the Cataloging Division to include the development and management of
non-MARC metadata creation.  The successful candidate needs to be able
to think broadly about how the work of technical services can aid
learners and assist in the research endeavors of the university in
today’s rapidly changing information environment.

Founded in 1820, Indiana University-Bloomington has grown from a small
state seminary into the flagship campus of a great public university
with over 42,000 students and almost 3,000 faculty. With a
world-renowned research reputation, IUB is also known for its
innovative academic programs and attentiveness to undergraduates. The
campus covers over 1,800 wooded acres and is distinctive for both its
park-like beauty and an architectural heritage inspired by local
craftsmanship in limestone.

The IUB Libraries (http://www.libraries.iub.edu/) are one of the
leading academic research library systems in North America, having
recently been named the top university library by the Association of
College and Research Libraries.  The Libraries provide strong
collections, quality service and instructional programs, and
leadership in the application of information technologies.  The IU
Libraries system consists of eighteen libraries or units on the
Bloomington campus, five libraries in Indianapolis, and a library at
each of the six campuses across the state. The IUB collections include
more than 6.6 million books, journals, maps, films, and sound
recordings in over 900 languages. The materials support every academic
discipline on campus, with an emphasis in the humanities and social
sciences. Users can access more than 400 databases, 43,000 electronic
journals, and 224,000 electronic books, as well as locally developed
digital content. The IUB Libraries are active members of regional and
national associations and consortia including the Committee on
Institutional Cooperation (CIC), the Association of Research Libraries
(ARL), the Center for Research Libraries (CRL), and the Digital
Library Federation (DLF).  In addition, IUB is a founding member of
the LOCKSS and CLOCKSS initiative and plays a leadership role in the
Kuali OLE (Open Library Environment) Project.

Reporting to the Associate Dean for Technical Services, the Head,
Cataloging Division serves as a member of the department’s senior
management team and provides leadership in strategic planning,
administration, and resource allocation for technical services
activities.  The Technical Services Department consists of two
divisions:  Acquisitions and Cataloging.  The Cataloging Division
operations pertain to original and complex copy cataloging of
monographs, continuing resources, audio-visual materials, maps,
electronic resources, and other bibliographic formats in Western
European, Slavic/East European, Middle Eastern, and
Chinese/Japanese/Korean languages.  Division staff actively
participate in national programs including BIBCO, CONSER, NACO, SACO,
OCLC Enhance, and National Enhance.  In addition, the division is
responsible for database maintenance, the coordination of record
loads, authority control, and physical processing.  The Libraries’
integrated library system is SirsiDynix Symphony.

support staff) during a critical period for technical services brought
about by the changing composition of research library collections.

and develop short and long-range plans based on an awareness of
