Digital Library Metadata Specialist
Cambridge University Library

Grade 7, £27,428 - £35,788 pa

Limit of tenure: 1.5 years from date of appointment.

Cambridge University Library is seeking to appoint a suitably qualified 
candidate with an interest and relevant experience in digital libraries 
or digital humanities to work within its digital library team from early 
2012. The Foundations Project is a strategic initiative of the Library, 
which aims to establish a state-of-the-art infrastructure for the 
production, preservation and online delivery of digitised content from 
its world-class collections. The first iteration of the digital library 
is online at http://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/.

The appointee will work within a core team of six, including another 
metadata specialist, with whom they will share a portfolio. Reporting to 
the Library’s Digitisation and Digital Preservation Manager, they will 
concentrate on metadata and transcription aspects of the project, 
supporting the broad requirements of the Foundations Project and the 
particular needs of several associated projects, particularly a 
JISC-funded mass digitisation project based on the fascinating archive 
of the Board of Longitude. This role will provide an opportunity for the 
appointee to work at the forefront of digital library and digital 
humanities initiatives.

Applicants should have a good honours degree in information management, 
computing, digital humanities or a related field and experience of 
working with XML-based metadata or transcription data (e.g. METS or 
TEI). They should ideally have some experience of scripting in one or 
more of the following: PHP, Perl, Java. In addition to excellent 
technical skills, we seek applicants with good project management and 
interpersonal skills, able to communicate well with non-technical users 
and stakeholders.

Informal enquiries are welcomed by Grant Young, Digitisation and Digital 
Preservation Manager on 01223 765576 / [log in to unmask] or Patricia 
Killiard, Head of Electronic Services and Systems on 01223 333037 /
