California Digital Library seeks Publication Management System Coordinator

Do you find deep joy in bibliometrics? How about synchronizing disparate (sometimes compatible) systems to create a web of information across a vast university system? Are you also a fan of Open Access policies and eager to help faculty embrace them?  The California Digital Library seeks a dynamic individual to act as the primary product and service owner for UC’s publication management system — based largely on Symplectic Elements and currently being utilized to support UC’s expansive Open Access policies.

The first project the incumbent will manage will be to expand the implementation of UC’s OA policies to include the most recent Presidential Policy, which covers all UC staff (approximately 250,000 individuals). The Publication Management System Coordinator will also manage projects that connect the CRIS to other campus systems (e.g. researcher profiles, assessment & evaluation systems, etc.) and will identify new opportunities to build toward a networked academic information system across the UC system. The incumbent will additionally manage daily triage of user requests, monitor technical development tasks, and engage with vendors to ensure user needs are addressed in a timely fashion.

The Publication Management System Coordinator will need to blend strong outreach and project management skills as well as technical expertise in bibliometrics to be successful in the position. In-depth knowledge of scholarly communication practices and emerging trends – especially as they relate to open access and related technical platforms – is also essential.
