HathiTrust, hosted at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, is seeking a
Metadata Analyst.

HathiTrust Digital Library has an opportunity for a collaborative and
service-focused individual with deep knowledge of library and other data to
improve and develop metadata structures, policies, and processes that
underlie HathiTrust service provision to member libraries and end users.

HathiTrust is a global partnership of 150+ research libraries hosted at the
University of Michigan and working towards the mission to ensure that the
cultural record is preserved and accessible long into the future. More than
ten years after its founding, HathiTrust holds over 17 million volumes, one
of the largest sets of digitized books managed by a non-profit
organization, and makes that corpus available for search and discovery to
the fullest extent allowable by copyright law and other limitations.

The Metadata Analyst will work closely with HathiTrust program and
operations staff, operational partners, member libraries, and integrated
library system vendors to support discovery and delivery of HathiTrust
metadata, and analysis of the digital collection for collection development
purposes. We expect that this position will identify metadata needs and
issues for HathiTrust, and support decision-making for future directions
for metadata to make it more powerful for both human and machine use.

For more information or to apply, see
https://www.hathitrust.org/metadata-analyst. Review of applications will
begin on July 8 and continue until position is filled.
