The University of Arizona Libraries seek a resourceful and forward-thinking
individual for the position of Systems and Metadata Librarian/Specialist.

The Systems and Metadata Librarian/Specialist will play an oversight and
leadership role with our library services platform (Alma). They will also
be responsible for managing and continually improving the Libraries’
knowledgebase of metadata within that environment and applying their
expertise in diagnosing, troubleshooting, and solving LSP-related issues
(e.g., remediation, interoperability, metadata standards, etc.) as well as
in extending and optimizing the LSP’s functionality.

The successful incumbent will collaboratively establish and communicate
priorities and procedures, manage workflows, and seek ways to achieve
efficiencies and improved interoperability among our products and services.
The successful applicant will actively work across departmental lines in an
environment where collaboration, integrity, customer service, creative
problem solving, and collegiality are all highly valued.

This is a continuing status track (equivalent to tenure track), academic
professional position. Depending on experience, candidates may be hired at
either the Assistant or Associate rank, and as continuing-eligible or with
continuing status. “Specialist” is a parallel title typically used by the
Libraries for continuing status track individuals with advanced degrees
outside of library/information science. Incumbents are members of the
General Faculty of the University of Arizona and are entitled to all
accompanying rights and privileges granted by the University and the
Arizona Board of Regents. Retention and promotion are earned through
achievement of a record of excellence in position effectiveness,
scholarship, and service.
