Digital Preservation Librarian
Position at University of Michigan Library

The University of Michigan Library seeks innovative librarians to
join a dynamic, collegial team engaged in creating, managing, and
preserving a ground-breaking digital library, including the
following position: Digital Preservation Librarian

Shape the future of tomorrow's past. Join one of the world's
cutting-edge digital libraries in creating the field of digital
preservation. Take on the challenge of exploring such concepts as:

    What does preservation mean in the context of a digital library
    with holdings counted in millions?

    Step-by-step, what does a library need to do to ensure that
    digital collections will be available ten years from now? 50
    years? 100 years?

    How does a digital repository assure users and partners that the
    holdings are secure for the long-term?

    What does the community at all levels (students, faculty,
    librarians, the public at large) need to know about preserving
    digital information, and what is the best way to instruct them?
