      additional metadata (such as tags, ratings, and reviews) and to
      educate about open educational content and issues around the
      modification and reuse of these items over time.

      Duties include:
      • Assistance in the continued development of the electronic inventory
      of open educational resources through identification of appropriate
      resource collections
      • Metadata indexing with a strong emphasis on creating, mapping,
      structuring, proofing, and transforming appropriate and accurate metadata
      • Collaboration with programming team on the implementation of data
      harvesting, including using OAI-PMH and RSS and the development of
      automated processes around data submission and validation.

      web-based databases and MS Office applications
