Job Description

Consulting position advising library ebook vendor on correct format of RDA-compliant MaRC records. All work may be done remotely via Internet and phone. 

Total BooX is a startup ebook vendor for libraries. We have over 20,000 ebooks from reputable publishers, such as Elsevier Science and Open Road Media. In our business model, the library does not pay up front for patron access to the books. Rather, the library pays for pages that patrons actually read. This reduces the cost and risk of adding large numbers of ebooks to the collection. However, since libraries need MaRC records to make the books fully discoverable, we also want to supply them. We need someone to advise us on this.

We are looking for someone who has an in-depth knowledge of all aspects of digital book cataloging, as well as a spirit of adventure--someone who wants to be on the cutting edge. 

Other Required/Preferred Skills & Experience

Expertise in MaRC records, cataloging, RDA.
