CatDS Original Cataloger @ UF libraries

The University of Florida’s George A. Smathers Libraries seek a CatDS Original Cataloger whose primary role and responsibilities are original and shared cataloging of special collections materials in multiple formats and languages according to accepted professional standards. This includes describing the content of items and conducting subject analysis as well as assigning appropriate access points and classification numbers. Catalog records are contributed to OCLC WorldCat, an international database of library collections, and included in the library management system. The work also requires the creation of related authority records for personal and corporate names, series titles, and subjects for submission to the national authority file. The Original Cataloger assists in creating workflows and procedures, training staff, and creatively resolving problems.

The search will remain open until September 7, and applications will be reviewed as received. For a full description of the position and instructions on how to apply, please refer to the George A. Smathers Libraries staff recruitment webpage at
