The position will work closely with colleagues in LITS and with Tri-College Library Consortium colleagues (which includes Haverford and Swarthmore College Libraries) to grow our digital collections program and support digital collections infrastructure and practices. The Digital Collections and Metadata Librarian is responsible for providing expertise and leadership in development, implementation, and assessment of digital collections and metadata systems, policies, and procedures to support discovery, access, management, and preservation of Bryn Mawr and Tri-College collections.
