work directly with faculty to conceive and implement specific academic
projects that will increase our on-line resources and expand the capability
of the information system. This person must coordinate closely with staff in
other areas, such as Humanities computing, the Library, and the information
system programming staff. Must have excellent interpersonal skills and the
experience to supervise a small support staff.

Requirements. Master's degree with 6 or more years of relevant experience in
the preparation and deployment of digital resources, particularly full texts,
for research and instruction. A successful record of working with faculty on
projects involving the use of on-line resources is essential. Extensive
experience with applications for the preparation and implementation of large
volumes of digital information. Excellent organizational, teaching, and
communication skills. Familiarity with BRS, PAT (Open Text Systems) and SGML
