The University of Vermont Libraries seeks an innovative and energetic librarian to provide original and complex cataloging for materials across the libraries. Working collaboratively, this full time faculty librarian position will manage the operations of cataloging, oversee maintenance of records for electronic/print materials, and ensure prompt access to newly acquired resources and timely resolution of access issues. This position requires a dynamic, self-motivated individual who is committed to process improvement and is flexible and forward-thinking.
The Cataloging and Metadata Librarian will participate in cataloging/metadata operations for all collections: general, medical/health sciences, media, digital (vendor-supplied and homegrown), and special collections. Reporting to the Director of Collection Management Services, the successful candidate will join the cataloging unit and collaborate with the Serials & Digital Access Metadata Librarian to manage the workflows of central cataloging services and monitor digital access issues. This librarian will motivate and provide guidance to paraprofessional catalogers and will collaborate with colleagues across the libraries to bring knowledge of national and local standards and implement quality assurance processes. With a general knowledge of such topics as metadata interoperability and RDA standards, the Cataloging and Metadata Librarian will contribute to decisions that move the Resource Description and Analysis Services unit and the Libraries into the future.
