Position Announcement: NGLP Project Manager (Contractor)

Background

Library publishing is a burgeoning area of practice in academic libraries. This institution-based publishing model aligns with core academic values and actively seeks to broaden the open dissemination of knowledge, through traditional publications like journals and monographs and more informal and experimental forms of scholarly communication. To fully realize these goals, library publishers need: 1) better integrations of the open source tools and services upon which they rely, and 2) stronger open source tools for web delivery, content management, and reporting. 

The Next Generation Library Publishing (NGLP) project, led by Educopia, California Digital Library (CDL), and Stratos, in partnership with LYRASIS, COAR, and Longleaf Services, is working to build and integrate community-led, open-source infrastructure and service solutions to provide robust support for library publishing. 

Our team recently moved its project manager into a product owner role to focus on the technical deliverables of the project, and we are seeking a contractor to carry forward the project management tasks for the remainder of the project (through February 2022) with possibilities for renewal on similar projects in the future.
