Title:Metadata Librarians Today: Roles and Competencies
Author(s):Han, Myung-Ja K.; Hswe, Patricia
Subject(s):metadata librarians
cataloging librarians
Abstract:The title of Metadata Librarian first appeared in the late 1990's in conjunction with developments in information technology and digital library initiatives. Since the title is a relatively new one, the responsibilities and competencies of the position have yet to be clearly defined. This study examined 86 job descriptions for metadata librarian positions and 83 job descriptions for cataloging librarian positions, all posted from 2000 to 2008. The authors focused on three properties common to most of the job descriptions: education, required qualifications, and desired qualifications.
