OU Library Jobs Round-Up (August 2008)

As I feel a flurry of Library related posts coming on, it’s perhaps appropriate to drop the following post in as something I can repeatedly link to over the next week or two (I live in hope that the OUseful.info blog will actually work one day as an OU job ad channel!) – a handful of OU Library jobs:

  • Access to Video Assets Project Manager, The Library and Learning Resource Centre: This is a superb opportunity to join a proactive world class Library service and provide leadership and excellent project management skills for an innovative digitisation project based at The Open University, Milton Keynes. The Access to Video Assets (AVA) project has been funded by The Open University to deliver a searchable collection of broadcast archives material for use in learning, teaching and research.
    You will report to the Learning Resources Development Manager based in The Open University Library and will be responsible for leading a small team consisting of the AVA Project Technical Manager and a Project Administrator to deliver the project’s objectives.
  • Access to Video Assets Technical Project Manager, The Library and Learning Resource Centre: This is a superb opportunity to join a proactive world class Library service and provide excellent technical project management skills for an innovative digitisation project based at The Open University, Milton Keynes. The Access to Video Assets (AVA) project has been funded by The Open University to deliver a searchable collection of broadcast archives material for use in learning, teaching and research.
    You will report directly to the Access to Video Assets Project Manager based in The Open University Library and be responsible for delivering a technical business case, a pilot repository for broadcast archive material and provide key input into a service implementation plan for this significant digitisation project.
  • Digital Libraries Programme Manager: Do you have the vision, creativity and project management skills to lead a programme of digital library developments for 2013?
    We are looking for a dynamic and highly motivated individual with an up to date knowledge of digital library technologies and their potential, rather than hands-on technical expertise, to manage the development of a range of new and exciting services for our students and staff. You will have excellent team working and communication skills and enjoy working with change and challenge.
  • E- Content Advisor, The Library and Learning Resource Centre: The Library’s use of electronic collections is expanding to meet the needs of students and staff for their learning, teaching and research. You will play a key role in developing operational support for the Library’s expanding range of subscriptions and electronic resources as well as co-ordinating the activities associated with purchasing and providing access to electronic content. You will provide support to the strategic development of electronic resources in line with the Library’s aims and objectives.
    A graduate in Librarianship/Information Studies or with equivalent relevant work experience, you will have good working knowledge of issues concerning the acquisition and delivery of electronic and print resources. You will also be able to demonstrate an understanding of technical issues concerning the delivery of electronic content to distance users. A flexible attitude, excellent communication skills, confidence and initiative with the ability to originate solutions are essential.

(I wonder if the video archiving project is DIVA, mark 2?!)

As ever, none of the above posts have anything to do with me…
