The New York Public Library seeks an extremely organized, detail-oriented person to serve as the Library’s Rights Clearance Analyst. The successful candidate will work closely with the Library’s permissions office, attorneys, curators, and collections strategy department to: (i) assist the Library in its efforts to make its myriad collections more broadly available to researchers and to the public at large via a Rights Management Database and (ii) develop and implement the Library’s guidelines regarding the use of materials in the Library’s collections.
I haven’t seen anything like this before – and it’s an aspect of digital libraries I hadn’t thought about. The NYPL is looking for a candidate with a JD or an MLS. This might be a good move for a law librarian looking to change it up a bit.
Yes mi Lion!
