Library Technology Developer
Falvey Memorial Library seeks a strategic, collaborative, and detail-oriented individual with a passion for digital preservation and open source software development to lead the design, development, testing, deployment and maintenance of the digital repository system that powers the Digital Library @ Villanova University, https://digital.library.villanova.edu.
Reporting to the Director of Library Technology, the Library Technology Developer accepting this position will focus primarily on Digital Library issues, starting with the need to migrate content and administrative tools from a legacy Fedora 3 system into a more modern, maintainable, open source platform. S/he will join a team of programmers and librarians in working to continually improve the library’s web presence and its support for staff and public technology needs. S/he will also actively participate in global open source communities working to improve the library technology landscape through such projects as VuFind and the Universal Viewer.
Falvey Memorial Library is situated in the heart of campus and is central to academic life at Villanova University. Falvey, with a dedicated staff of approximately 50 FTE (including 5 FTE in the Technology department), is a friendly and exciting place to be that values work-life balance. The Library developed VuFind, an open-source ILS discovery layer, which is used by organizations world-wide, and was the university library recipient of the ACRL 2013 Excellence in Academic Libraries Award.
Villanova University is located on a beautiful 260-acre suburban campus twelve miles west of Philadelphia and was founded in 1842 by the Order of Saint Augustine. To this day, Villanova’s Augustinian Catholic intellectual tradition is the cornerstone of an academic community in which students learn to think critically, act compassionately, and succeed while serving others.
