Cataloging & Metadata Librarian @ Furman University Libraries

The Cataloging and Metadata Librarian is responsible for all original and copy cataloging in the Furman University Libraries. This position works collaboratively with library colleagues to ensure the discoverability of library materials in print and electronic formats. The ideal candidate will be comfortable cataloging in a mixed RDA/AACR2 environment using the MARC 21 standards, LC classification, and LCSH, and will demonstrate a willingness to learn other metadata standards and schema (e.g. Dublin Core, BIBFRAME).

Furman University Libraries uses Library of Congress classification and has a shared version of Alma and Primo (by Ex Libris) as their library services platform. This system is shared among 55 libraries in the statewide consortium PASCAL (Partnership Among South Carolina Academic Libraries).

This position is integral to meeting the Library’s strategic diversity goals. The successful candidate will participate in rolling DEI audits of the library’s physical and digital collections to ensure materials are described using inclusive language while avoiding potentially harmful or offensive terms.

This is a full-time non-tenure track faculty librarian position. Expected start date: August 1, 2022.
