CDL Job Opening for Shared Content Service Coordinator
At the California Digital Library (CDL), we believe passionately that the library, in all its forms, is critically important to the vital work of students, scholars and the public. As a University of California systemwide library, CDL provides services to and on behalf of the UC system as a partner and collaborator to the UC campus libraries. As a globally-connected digital library, CDL occupies a unique position between the local UC campuses and the global digital library infrastructure. The user base for CDL services and programs includes UC faculty, students and library staff; the patrons of the consortia in which the UC Libraries participate; and the many people worldwide who benefit from UC’s open access offerings.
As a member of the Licensed Content Group within the CDL’s Collection Development and Management Program, the Shared Content Service Coordinator communicates with UC campus librarians and collection development officers to identify their information needs, negotiates with content vendors, drafts UC systemwide subscription/purchase proposals, supports senior-level discussions, provides outreach events and workshops related to CDL collection development activities, and informs UC librarians on CDL-licensed resources totaling nearly $50M annually. The position reports to, and receives direction from, the Assistant Director for Systemwide Licensing.
