Position: Metadata Librarian
Location: Cornell University Library (Ithaca, NY)
Deadline: 2016 June 06
Under the general direction of the Head of Metadata Services and in consultation with other key staff, the Metadata 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. 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.
A key responsibility of this position will be the development of long-term solutions for improved MARC and non-MARC metadata management, interoperability and resource discovery based on principles of integration and reusability of metadata across platforms and collections. The Librarian will play an important role in strategic CUL initiatives, such as the Open Library Environment (OLE) implementation as well as the Andrew W. Mellon funded Linked Data for Libraries Labs (LD4L Labs) and Linked Data for Production projects (LD4P).
