Stanford Libraries is seeking a full-time, fixed-term Digital Projects and Data Manager to join a team supporting preservation, discovery, and access as part of its digital library. As a part of Digital Library Systems and Services (DLSS), the Digital Projects and Data Manager is a member of a highly collaborative team engaged in the creation, management, preservation, and publishing of digital collections. The Digital Projects and Data Manager contributes to these efforts as both a project manager and a data manager.

Data management responsibilities include analysis, creation, transformation, and quality assurance of descriptive data for library and archival collections to be mapped and indexed to online platforms for discovery and delivery of digital content to researchers. The Digital Projects and Data Manager is a member of a cross-organizational team engaged in the expansion of Virtual Tribunals (VT) at Stanford. Launched to the public in 2018, VT (https://exhibits.stanford.edu/virtual-tribunals) is a project to compile a comprehensive database of international criminal tribunal records, from the post-WWII cases through the contemporary tribunals, fully digitized, and rendered searchable through a single online portal. Working within the curatorial, technical, and operational framework established for the VT project, the Digital Projects and Data Manager supports work to incorporate additional content, including archival audiovisual and textual materials, to the database. They work with subject matter and language experts, digital collection specialists, digital library service managers, and archivists as needed; they also may serve as the product owner or business owner during software development cycles, working with engineering teams on enhancements and maintenance.
