The National Library of Scotland is seeking a Digital Scholarship Librarian to develop and deliver a new research and support service that links researchers and library collections, with services and technical tools to enable new and creative methods of digital research.

This is a new role that will be responsible for developing a Digital Scholarship service.  This will involve working externally with the research community, particularly in the area of Digital Humanities, whilst also working internally with staff across the Library.  You will assist in ensuring collections are made available as data, in forms that can be used for research and creative uses.  In addition, you will use your own digital scholarship experience to undertake digital research yourself to demonstrate the potential of this area.

You will work with the largest library collection in Scotland amongst experts in their field who contribute to many areas of research, be provided with significant internal support, and be given responsibility for the delivery of an exciting new service.

The closing date for applications is 2nd November 2018.  It is anticipated that interviews will be held on the 21st November 2018.
