P/T - Finidng Aids Encoder - Amer. Jewish Joint Dist. Comm.

The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee is urgently looking for a part-time employee to encode finding aids in EAD XML.

The finding aids already exist in digital format and need to be marked up in EAD down to folder-level descriptions. The encoded documents will be used to import JDC’s digitized collections into a content management system. The process is relatively straightforward, as several of the finding aids have already been completed and can serve as templates.

The ideal candidate would be able to work 15-20 hours per week at JDC’s New York Headquarters in midtown Manhattan. A high level of familiarity with EAD is required. JDC expects the work to last at least through December with the possibility of future work on an as-needed basis.

JDC is looking to fill this position as soon as possible. Interested individuals should contact:
