Systems and Discovery Services Librarian, University of California, Berkeley

The University of California, Berkeley Library seeks a dynamic, collaborative, and user-oriented colleague as the Systems and Discovery Services Librarian who will be responsible for the development, support, maintenance, and migration of the library’s integrated library system (ILS), discovery services, and catalog. The Systems and Discovery Services Librarian works collaboratively with a wide range of libraries and units to support the functionality of the library’s integrated catalog and the discovery layer. The position works as part of a department that provides services to all UC Berkeley Libraries. This enterprise-wide department is a key component of the UC Berkeley Library’s integrated information technology ecosystem.

This position coordinates and leads the administration and migration of the library services platform and collaborates across departments and libraries that handle cataloging, metadata, circulation, collection management, user services, and discovery. The position also provides coordination around the hardware, software, and associated peripherals and processes related to the ILS, so that faculty, students and staff have access to the full range of system functionality including an online public access catalog (OPAC), and library staff have appropriate access to the discovery layer, analytics, circulation, acquisitions, cataloging, collections, and electronic resources management modules and workflows as needed.

The position will also lead and coordinate a team planning and transitioning to ExLibris’s Alma/Primo platform from Innovative Interfaces’ Millennium. This project, which is the implementation of a Systemwide Integrated Library System (SILS), is a major effort for all of the 10 University of California campuses and the California Digital Library. It will involve a coordinated effort from all libraries and departments/divisions within the UC Berkeley Library. The project will involve massive data migration, complex system configuration, revamping of many library workflows and automated processes, and a comprehensive communications and training program for Library staff.
