Reporting to the Head of Manuscripts and Archives Processing in the Special Collections Processing Center at the Kislak Center, the processing archivist will arrange and describe analog, digital, and hybrid archival collections, create EAD finding aids using ArchivesSpace in order to provide access to collections, and will contribute posts to the Kislak Center blog and other social media. The processing archivists’ focus will be on large and/or complicated collections held by the University Archives, Kislak Center, and the Katz Center that require significant archival experience and skill. The processing archivist will work with fellow archivists within the Penn Libraries and across campus to improve workflows, policies and practices in an effort to respond to and anticipate the evolving needs of the archival profession and the Penn Libraries’ vision of responsibly and ethically promoting access to collections.
