Reporting to the Head of the Collections Services Division and working closely with unit heads for Acquisitions and Preservation, and other collaborating units in the Library, the Head of Metadata Services will oversee the creation of metadata for materials acquired and created by the University and provide vision for the delivery of new services within the area of resource description and discovery.
The Head of Metadata Services will build the metadata capabilities in the unit by fostering an environment of collaboration, innovation, accountability, and ongoing learning. This may be accomplished by assessing staff training and development, promoting library-wide collaboration, and keeping abreast of current and new practices within the rapidly evolving realm of information management and discovery. The Head will also serve as an authoritative resource person for metadata related questions, supervise and contribute to the creation of original and complex adaptive catalog records using MARC 21, RDA, LCSH and LCC, and support the UC Berkeley Library’s participation in the Program for Cooperative Cataloging. The Head of Metadata Services will help lead the implementation of Linked Data at Berkeley.
The Head of Metadata Services is responsible for supervising staff and librarians in the unit.
The Head of Metadata Services is expected to be a key player in building effective relationships with colleagues both nationally and internationally as new metadata standards emerge.
