As the largest university library system in the Washington
D.C.-Baltimore area, the University of Maryland Libraries serve more
than 37,500 students and 4,200 faculty of the flagship College Park
campus. The University of Maryland Libraries share the teaching,
learning and research goals of the university. Its role as a key
academic resource is evident in its service to the academic community
and its actionable strategic plan. Recent membership in the Committee
on Institutional Cooperation, a robust organization of Big Ten member
institutions, is particularly meaningful to the University Libraries
and will further propel the university's ascendancy in academic
excellence.

With collections including 4 million volumes and more than 40,000
serials subscriptions, the University of Maryland Libraries allocate
75 percent of its materials budget to electronic resources. Maryland
ranks 39th among the 115 member libraries of the Association of
Research Libraries and has an operating budget of $23.7 million.  The
University of Maryland Libraries benefit from being situated
geographically within minutes of the nation's capital and its
departments, agencies, and research centers.

The University of Maryland Libraries is seeking an Electronic
Resources Librarian. As a member of the Acquisitions Department
reporting to the Head of Acquisitions, the Electronic Resources
Librarian is responsible for the procurement, licensing and management
of electronic resources purchased directly by the UM Libraries, and
those resources indirectly acquired through collective licensing via
consortia.  Responsible for the administration of new and existing
licensing for electronic resources; maintains a database for tracking
electronic resource licenses and licensing expressions.  Researches
existing license agreements and negotiates new licenses, develops and
maintains guidelines for standard licensing terms, monitors
subscriptions in relation to existing license expirations and
renewals, reviews the impact of current licensing on post cancellation
archival access, collects usage statistics, registers and activates
new electronic resources, and troubleshoots e-access problems reported
by patrons and other library staff.

Works closely with the Head of Collection Management, the Continuing
Resources Librarian, and the Head of Acquisitions to develop licensing
policies and e-resource management workflows for both owned and demand
driven e-resources, and to support new methods of research, such as
working with large datasets and text/data mining.  Consults with
University Counsel to resolve license and contract issues.  Works
closely with Metadata Services staff and Digital Systems and
Stewardship staff to make sure electronic content and database
resources are both discoverable and accessible to library users. Also
assists the collection development librarians with renewals and the
licensing of new electronic resources.  Participates in inter and
intra-departmental initiatives across the Libraries.

Librarians hold faculty status and contribute to the teaching, service
and research mission of the University.  As a member of the Library
