The University of Michigan Library is seeking a librarian to be a project manager, with experience in the creation of digital collections and the software and applications that are the base of those collections. The successful candidate will collaborate with a team of librarians, programmers, and other experts on a major initiative to build a new digital library system architecture. The new system will make use of recent developments in the open source community and will handle a wide array of materials: text and images, video, music, research data sets, historical records, and more. This is an opportunity to join a skilled and forward thinking group, and to gain experience with modern technologies that support web-based research and preservation.
The library is committed to recruiting and retaining a diverse workforce and encourages all employees to fully incorporate their diverse backgrounds, skills, and life experiences into their work and towards the fulfillment of the library’s mission.
The University of Michigan is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer.
