    Hello all,

    I am pleased to (re)announce that Stanford Libraries is seeking a full-time Head, Metadata Creation Unit, to join the Metadata Services Management Team. Applications will be accepted up until October 15, 2021.
    The Head of Metadata Creation provides strategic implementation and operational management of bibliographic metadata policies, practices, workflows, and the tools to support them. As part of the Metadata Services management team the Head of Metadata Creation is responsible for directing the creation of descriptive and authority metadata for books, serials, audio-visual and electronic resources in a wide range of languages. This position is also key to developing and leading the implementation of new workflows in response to new data models (linked data, including BIBFRAME and its extensions) and new tools, technologies, and metadata environments, including Wikidata, FOLIO, SHARE-VDE, and Sinopia, our linked data editor. These goals will require active participation in community- and standards-building around library linked data at the national and/or international levels. The position reports to the Associate Director of Metadata Services.

    Stanford is an equal employment opportunity and affirmative action employer. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, protected veteran status, or any other characteristic protected by law. Stanford welcomes applications from all who would bring additional dimensions to the University's research, teaching and clinical missions.
