Women's Archives Metadata Specialist -- J. Willard Marriott Library, University of Utah

Post date: August 2,  2023

The J. Willard Marriott Library seeks an innovative and detail-oriented professional for the position of Women’s Archives Metadata Specialist as part of a National Historical Publications & Records Commission grant project. This is an excellent opportunity to work with archives from Utah and the Intermountain West and improve library patrons’ ability to find, interpret, and use archival collections containing materials by and about women. The position includes funding to attend and present at select professional conferences. To allow for the physical examination of archival materials, the Metadata Specialist will be required to work on-site in Salt Lake City. Relocation will be financially supported by a moving allowance. This is a full time, term-limited position, with an expected effort of 40 hours per week, an expected start date in October 2023, and an expected end date in June 2025. The exact end date will depend on several factors including the exact starting date and the continued availability of project funding.

This position is required to work on campus full-time. Telecommuting will only be authorized for occasional/exceptional circumstances.

We seek qualified applicants who also bring perspectives and experiences that will enrich and strengthen our organization. We especially invite applications from candidates who may not have followed a traditional educational or professional path. All candidates should be prepared to discuss how they see themselves contributing to the University’s equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts. The library serves an increasingly diverse constituency of patrons, and our employees, services, collections, and policies should honor and reflect this diversity. We are therefore interested in identifying and interviewing candidates who have experience with underserved or marginalized communities and communities of color and who are committed to advancing our mission to provide equitable access to information resources.

Salary: $45,000 (limited by project budget)
