Metadata Analyst
Assistant Librarian/Associate Librarian
Indiana University Bloomington Libraries

The IU Bloomington Libraries are seeking an energetic, innovative and 
service-oriented individual for the newly created position of Metadata 
Analyst for the Indiana University Digital Library Program (DLP).  

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. Innovation, creativity, and 
academic freedom are hallmarks of IU Bloomington and its world-class 
contributions in research and the arts. 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 Indiana University Bloomington Libraries 
(http://www.libraries.iub.edu) are among 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 IUB 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 on 
the Bloomington campus, five libraries in Indianapolis, and a library at 
each of the other six campuses across the state. The collections support 
every academic discipline on campus and include more than 6.6 million 
books, journals, maps, films, and audio/visual materials in over 900 
languages. 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 Digital Library 
Federation (DLF), and is a founding member of HathiTrust, a shared digital 
repository. IU is the principal investigator for Kuali Open Library 
Environment (OLE) and is working with academic library partners to develop 
a next generation open source library management system. 

The DLP is a system-wide resource that is dedicated to the production, 
maintenance, delivery, and preservation of a wide range of high-quality 
networked resources.  As part of the Library Technologies and Digital 
Libraries division, the DLP assumes a leadership role in the development 
and delivery of services to preserve and provide access to digital content 
from IU’s libraries, archives, museums, faculty, and academic departments 
to local users, citizens of the state of Indiana, and beyond. The DLP 
provides a focus for the development of strategies and initiatives that 
will help guide the University's libraries through the transformations 
necessary to succeed in the digital age.

The Metadata Analyst reports to the Associate Director for Digital Library 
Content and Services and will be responsible for:
•	Planning long-term metadata strategies for the IU Libraries and DLP
•	Advising on appropriate standards and approaches to creating and 
managing metadata for digital projects, collections, and systems
•	Working with collection managers, subject specialists, and 
catalogers to identify appropriate metadata standards in digital projects

and video.
•	Designing and/or adapting XML schemas, XSLT stylesheets, 
Schematron assertions, and RDF ontologies for digital systems and projects
•	Translating metadata between formats and integrating metadata from 
a variety of sources
•	Participating in the design and development of services to support 
preservation of and access to digitized and born-digital content from IU’s 
collections
•	Collaborating with local, national, and international partners on 
research to advance the state of the art in digital libraries
•	Serving as a liaison between the Digital Library Program and 
internal and external partners on collaborative metadata projects
•	Performing project management activities for individual digital 
collection and systems projects

The Metadata Analyst will work on projects across the spectrum of the 
Digital Library Program, including those in support of the Lilly Library, 
University Archives, Cook Music Library, Archives of Traditional Music, 
Wells Library, and other units on the IU Bloomington campus, as well as in 
support of other IU campuses. The Metadata Analyst will also provide 
metadata planning and analysis support for IUScholarWorks, IU’s suite of 
online scholarly communication services (based on DSpace and Open Journal 
System software), and IU’s Fedora-based digital collections repository.

The Metadata Analyst will also contribute to DLP’s involvement in IU’s 
efforts to support data management and curation for its researchers and in 
the groundbreaking work on data publishing and curation to be undertaken 
as part of an NSF funded DataNet award. Additional work will overlap with 
the HathiTrust Digital Library (http://hathitrust.org) and the HathiTrust
