Dear Colleagues,

 

I’m excited to announce Cornell University Library seeks TWO metadata librarians:

 

----------

 

Metadata Operations Librarian: Working in close collaboration with Library Technical Services (LTS) colleagues, the Metadata Operations Librarian creates, maintains, enhances and enriches metadata in Cornell’s broader repository ecosystem that describes a rich array of assets and serves a diverse scholarly community with equally varied areas of research. The Metadata Operations Librarian provides expertise, guidance and leadership in cross-functional teams for the development, implementation and assessment of metadata infrastructure, policies and procedures.

 

This position focuses on metadata maintenance activities, primarily the integration of metadata between systems and extending relationships between resources. The Metadata Operations Librarian holistically considers the movement of MARC and non-MARC metadata across Cornell's collections with an eye towards scaling and automating these processes. This position defines and conducts efforts related to metadata design, mapping, maintenance, remediation and enhancement.

 

Key Opportunities:

-         Contribute to strategic library initiatives focused on resource discovery and repository implementation

-         Collaborate on the development of long-term solutions for improved metadata management and interoperability

-         Focus on the integration of metadata between systems

-         Define and conduct efforts related to metadata design, mapping, maintenance, remediation and enhancement

-         Contribute to building a body of knowledge at the intersection of technology and cultural inclusion

Metadata Projects Librarian: In collaboration with other key staff, the Metadata Projects Librarian provides strategic and technical guidance on metadata practice for Cornell University Library's (CUL) digital, physical and virtual collections within the broader context of CUL's digital and programmatic needs.

 

This position provides expertise in the development, implementation and assessment of metadata policies, procedures and infrastructure to Cornell; meanwhile, the Librarian monitors external developments, standards development and changing needs in these areas. The Librarian provides consultation and advocacy to both CUL colleagues and the community more broadly; this effort demands a strong knowledge of well-established and evolving metadata standards as well as their practical implications. 

 

Key Opportunities:

-          Engage with experienced and supportive colleagues in a highly collaborate environment

-          Focus on metadata design and guiding metadata creation

-          Contribute to strategic library initiatives focused on resource discovery and digital preservation

-          Collaborate on the development of long-term solutions for improved metadata creation and management

-          Contribute to building a body of knowledge at the intersection of technology and cultural inclusion
