Diversity Fellowship Program – OCLC – Dublin, OH

COMPANY NAME: OCLC Dublin, Ohio (Headquarters)
POSITION TITLE : Diversity Fellowship Program (Research)
LOCATION: Dublin, Ohio, United States, 43016

OCLC Online Computer Library Center, Inc. is a nonprofit, membership, computer library service and research organization dedicated to the public purposes of furthering access to the world’s information and reducing information costs. Tens of thousands of libraries around the world use OCLC services to locate, acquire, catalog, lend and preserve library materials. We are currently seeking candidates for a Diversity Fellowship Program (Research) position at our Dublin, Ohio office.

A research fellow has the opportunity to work on OCLC Research projects associated with the Advancing the Research Mission and User Behavior and Synthesis Activities.

The User Behavior and Synthesis Activity area includes several projects.
Visitors and Residents project http://www.oclc.org/research/activities/vandr/: This is a collaborative project that is funded by JISC and Oxford Universities in the UK and OCLC. The study utilizes the visitors and residents principle described in the University of Oxford’s Technology Assisted Lifelong Learning (TALL) blog, which hypothesizes that neither age nor gender determines whether one is a visitor (one who logs on to the virtual environment, performs a specific task or acquires specific information, and then logs off) or a resident (one who hasan ongoing, developing presence online). This work will increase understanding of how learners engage with the Web and how educational services and systems can attract and sustain a possible new group of lifelong learners. The trans-Atlantic partnership will support comparison of students’ digital learning strategies in different cultural contexts. The project will be in its final phase, which will require quantitative and qualitative data analysis and dissemination of research findings. The results can influence the development of OCLC and member organizations’ systems and services.

Cyber Synergy project (http://www.oclc.org/research/activities/synergy/default.htm): This is a collaborative project that is funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) and Rutgers University to investigate the possibility of seamless collaboration between knowledge institutions such as libraries and the Social Q&A (SQA) community. This project will require quantitative and qualitative data analysis, dissemination of research findings, and development of models for virtual reference and SQA services to initiate new collaborative library services. The project will be finalized in fall 2014 so there will be many opportunities for analysis reporting, and dissemination, including publications.

European Union grant proposal: Develop a grant proposal using the Visitors & Residents framework to study the use of mobile technologies in European countries and to develop anticipatory library applications. We will partner with approximately 5 European countries in this proposal. If funded, this project will require quantitative and qualitative data analysis, dissemination of research findings, and development of models to initiate new library mobile applications based on the location of the user.
The Advancing the Research Mission Activity area includes several projects.
Data sharing and reuse: Projects in this area examine scholars sharing and reuse of digital data and collections. Current projects are examining data reuse in three academic communities to identify how contextual information about the data that supports reuse can best be created and preserved. Projects in this area involve quantitative and qualitative research methods (e.g. surveys, interviewing, server logs, etc.) and the dissemination of research findings.

Librarian and Data Management: Projects related to this area examine the academic librarians’ role in data management. Of particular interest are librarian attitudes, involvement, and activities related to helping university researchers manage their data. Projects in this area employ quantitative and qualitative research methods and the dissemination of research findings. A major objective for projects in this area is to inform the development of effective social and technical infrastructures (e.g. education, training, systems, services, etc.) that can support librarians in their efforts.

The following skills are required to accomplish the projects/tasks across the two projects.
A Master’s or Ph.D. in Library and Information Science or related discipline (Information Systems, Human-Computer Interaction, Archives, Records Management) is required, though candidates with advanced degrees in social science disciplines (Anthropology, Sociology, and Psychology) are also encouraged to apply.
Strong communication and analytical skills
Ability to work independently and meet deadline
Experienced in Microsoft office program
Familiarity with database design principles
The following skills are preferred:
Undergraduate or graduate research experience
Ability to quickly learn new software applications
Salary and Benefits
Salary will be competitive and commensurate with experience and applicable market compensation
The Fellow will be eligible for health & welfare benefits such as is provided to other similarly situated term-limited employees
Relocation Assistance will be offered in the form of a lump sum distributed in two installments (50% at signing of offer and 50% after 90 days of start date). The amount of the lump sum will be determined by the distance required for relocation during the term of the fellowship
