The Mountain West Digital Library (MWDL) seeks to fill two exciting temporary Librarian positions: Assistant Director/Outreach Librarian and Digital Metadata Librarian. These positions are made possible with recent grant awards to MWDL through the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA), the first national digital library in the U.S. MWDL is one of the first seven service hubs in DPLA’s Digital Hubs Pilot Project and has received funding from three national agencies/foundations via DPLA. The purposes of MWDL’s participation in the DPLA Project are (1) to provide a digital “on ramp” to memory institutions in the Mountain West region, currently including Utah, Nevada, and southern Idaho, and with partners in Hawaii and Arizona; and (2) to expand MWDL services, improve its service model and funding model for long-term sustainability, sharing the lessons learned with other regional and state collaboratives. These two positions are funded through August 31, 2014, under the DPLA Digital Hubs Pilot Project grants. The positions are Research Librarians (non-tenure track career-line faculty) at the J. Willard Marriott Library at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, Utah, with rank based on experience and vote of Marriott Library faculty. Review of applications will begin May 16, 2013. Open until filled.
