The NSW State Library is looking to hire a digital and IT chief that can turn the 188-year old institution into a “centre of digital excellence”.
The key role will report directly to the state librarian Alex Byrne, and take responsibility for an IT team of 43 with a budget of around $21 million a year.
The so-called ‘digital excellence program’ has been funded to deliver “unprecedented” global online access to the state’s collection of historical records and information, including World War I diaries and newspapers.
It has already received $48.6 million in funding for the first half of the 10-year program.
