"The Repository Services Manager manages the University of Chicago’s institutional repository (Knowledge@UChicago) and its associated services. Reporting to the Scholarly Communications Librarian, the Repository Services Manager will deliver robust services and technologies to preserve and share the intellectual assets of the University of Chicago by providing researchers, instructors, and administrative staff with a professionally managed digital environment in which to curate, preserve, and disseminate their materials including scholarship, research data, and teaching resources. The Repository Services Manager is responsible for maintaining a patron-driven approach that ensures the daily operations of Knowledge@UChicago meet the needs of the University community.
Knowledge@UChicago relies on collaboration with the Research Computing Center and the University’s IT Services Division, and the Repository Services Manager is responsible for maintaining strong working relationships and ensuring flexible and coordinated services and infrastructure that support researchers working with a wide variety of data types, formats, and sizes including big data. The Repository Services Manager is expected to provide solutions that range from user-friendly, web-based services to API and command line capabilities that support batch processing and integration with researcher’s lab workflows.
The Repository Services Manager works with the Scholarly Communications Librarian and others across the Library to provide outreach and advocacy for Knowledge@UChicago by raising awareness of IR services across campus, creating opportunities for collaboration, and developing training programs. This will include developing solutions and documentation that support open access and open data publishing in the repository, creation of data management plans for grant applications, and support for data reproducibility...."
