Data & Service Manager, Digital Library of the Middle East

Stanford University Libraries seeks a resourceful and collaborative project coordinator with experience in data mapping and transformation to join efforts to build the Digital Library of the Middle East, a platform to preserve and provide access to cultural heritage resources from across the Middle East and North Africa. This initiative will create the first seamlessly interoperable, large-scale digital library of cultural artifacts from the region, and is built in collaboration between the Council on Library and Information Resources and Stanford University Libraries. 

Discovery and Access Service Manager

This new position plays a key role in developing, delivering, and supporting services related to the Stanford Libraries discovery and access systems, including SearchWorks and the Stanford Libraries web site. 

Repository Manager

The Repository Manager supports the operations and services of the Stanford Digital Repository: a system built, operated and maintained by Stanford Libraries for the long-term management of digital content of enduring value to teaching and research at Stanford. The Repository Manager role has two primary and complementary areas of focus: (1) running applications, workflows, systems, and tools that enable accessioning of digital content from a variety of sources to the SDR where the content is actively managed, preserved, transferred, and indexed to access systems for discovery and use; and (2) supporting content depositors from across the Stanford Library and beyond to Stanford departments, including faculty, students, and administrative staff.
