    The Digital Publishing Group (DPG) has the primary responsibility for

    activities by providing managerial and technical analysis for projects
    that add content to our digital library. Performing this responsibility
    requires a number of technical skills: a) understanding library metadata,
    including catalog records, archival collection descriptions and metadata
    embedded inside digital objects (i.e., technical, administrative,
    preservation, descriptive and structural metadata); b) developing
    processes to encode metadata and digital content using SGML, XML DTDs,
    XML schemas, etc; c) developing local or evaluating commercial software
    solutions to create digital materials to these metadata and encoding
    specifications; and d) implementing and maintaining digital materials in
    library public and staff access systems.

    In addition to possessing these technical skills, the Manager is directly
    responsible for managing all digital publishing projects, including
    working with subject specialists in designing workflows, schedules,
    budgets and evaluations for these projects. The Manager is also an
    integral participant in the Library's pursuit of extramural funding for
    relevant research and demonstration projects, and will work with a number
    of Library, campus, and UC organizations engaged in related projects and

    when appropriate; providing related data analysis; designing and
    implementing support software, including software for converting legacy
    data to SGML/XML-encoded formats; and training and advising project
    managers and staff.

    In addition, he or she will provide leadership in developing and managing
    publishing projects that convert materials to digital formats; create new
    "born digital" materials; assist in identifying and obtaining extramural
    support for such projects; and organize and perform research on new
    information technologies and technology standards.

    Required Qualifications: Working knowledge of SGML/XML, including DTD's
    and schemas, XSL and XSLT. Demonstrated experience as a project manager
    and supervisor, including project design, budgeting, workflow and
    scheduling. Experience working with some or all of the following tools
    and environments: HTML, scripting languages (e.g., Perl, JavaScript),
    Java, TEI-Lite, database management systems (relational and object
    oriented), Unix and Windows 95/98/NT/2000. Excellent oral and written
    communication skills; ability to work with various levels of library
    staff; manage multiple projects/deadlines
