Digital Scholarship Graduate Assistant

 

The University at Albany Libraries are seeking a graduate student to help develop and provide digital scholarship services in the University Library (uptown campus).

Digital Scholarship is the introduction of new technologically-driven methodologies for research and publication. Digital technologies provide exciting new possibilities to look at old problems in new ways while giving a wider and more accessible voice to scholars that enables them to broaden their reach.

These technologies introduce disciplines to new ways of visualizing information such as mapping, global imaging systems, social network analysis, as well as new methods of analysis like text encoding, entity extraction, and other types of natural language processing.  

This position will be ideal for a student with expertise in mapping software, text mining, or data visualization.

 

Responsibilities

  • Conduct a scan of the University to determine if other units on campus are offering digital scholarship services
  • Create a website or libguide which will guide students and faculty toward discovery of these services
  • Offer workshops on various digital software methods and packages
  • Identify priority areas that need to be addressed in order to create a digital scholarship center in the Libraries
  • Identify existing digital scholarship knowledge among the library faculty
  • Assist in organizing a digital scholarship conference scheduled for April 2019 (if funding is obtained)
  • Create and coordinate digital exhibits of student and faculty scholarship
  • Provide support to faculty who are engaged in digital scholarship projects

 

Qualifications

Required:

  • Must be enrolled in a University at Albany graduate degree program for a minimum of 9 graduate credits during each semester of work
  • Must have completed six hours of course credit
  • Excellent communication and organizational skills with the ability to manage multiple tasks and to work independently
