        Subject: Position: Digital Preservation Librarian

The Iowa State University Library is seeking a Digital Preservation
Librarian to lead the development, documentation, implementation, and
management of our digital preservation program. This position will
provide expertise and coordinate efforts to safeguard the University
Library's local digital assets, both born-digital and converted,
including electronic records, digital objects (text, image, audiovisual,
3D), web pages, and datasets. The Digital Preservation Librarian, at a
level of Librarian I or II, will assess the state of our digital
preservation activities; help identify collection priorities; and
create, maintain, and enforce policies, procedures, workflows, and
strategies for sustainable digital preservation and access practices. In
addition, the Librarian will implement other recommendations from the
University Library Digital Preservation Planning Project Report,
completed in August 2019. The Librarian will, also, work with the Iowa
Regent Libraries to develop the groundwork for collaborative/shared
digital preservation efforts, and represent the university in matters
concerning digital preservation at the local, national and international

Important attributes will include how to plan, organize, set and achieve
goals. Having the ability to effectively communicate and collaborate
will be essential to success, as the candidate will be working alongside
the department to achieve this goal. They will also need to be able to
work in a team environment as they will be working alongside multiple
library departments to achieve library strategic goals. The candidate
will also need to embrace the Library's core values, demonstrate
collegiality, and have strong commitment to public service and the land
grant mission.

ISU students, staff, and faculty strive to overcome historical and
divisive biases in our society. Library staff must embrace an
environment of inclusion that moves beyond simple tolerance to
recognizing the richness in individual identities of people, and diverse
perspectives. This directly impacts the work of the Digital Preservation
Librarian as they develop, enforce and implement policies, procedures
and workflows for the Iowa State University Library.
