This is a great opportunity to join the University of Edinburgh to manage, lead and develop our digitisation service. You will explore new ways of increasing the proportion of the University’s Collections available online, manage outsourcing of digitisation, specialist in-house photography, and scanning/rapid digitisation work.
The University has growing demand driving the transformation of analogue collections into digital collections in order to support research, teaching and, in particular, digital scholarship which makes this a fantastic opportunity to join the Digital Library team.
This role will give an experienced manager the opportunity to shape and build the University’s digitisation services, working with a wide range of collections making them accessible online, with potential further growth of the service to support the Edinburgh Citydeal.
You will manage 4+ staff, set targets, monitor progress, and oversee multiple simultaneous digitisation projects. Your management skills will ensure you have a motivated and effective team, providing them with good support, and your knowledge of both specialist digitisation as well as mass digitisation workflows and a belief in continuous improvement will ensure that the service is delivered in an efficient manner.
