The Claremont Colleges Digital Library (CCDL) and Scholarship@Claremont (S@C), our digital publishing platform and institutional repository, contain rich collections, including faculty and student publications and primary resources. After a groundbreaking decade of successes, our operations, platforms, and services that support digital scholarship are in need of review to ensure their sustainability and ability to expand with the growing information needs of the Claremont Colleges.

They will coordinate the development and curation of CCL's digital assets in close collaboration with content producers, providers, and selectors. This position will lead the library's digital publishing and preservation services by managing the CCDL and S@C. In partnership with the OCMTL, the DAMC will coordinate training on creating descriptive, administrative, and preservation metadata for objects in the digital collections. The DAMC will also plan, implement, and evaluate technologies that support digital publishing and preservation.

The DAMC will plan, organize, implement, and oversee the best care and delivery of the library's digital assets. They will coordinate the efforts of librarians to identify content for the library's digital collections and publications and determine best practices for their care, discoverability, and accessibility. We are looking to create a robust technological and staffing infrastructure to support our digital asset management program, and the DAMC will play a key role in leading the way.
