In 2008, the Department of Manuscripts and Rare Books at the Walters Art Museum embarked on an initiative to digitize its collection of medieval illuminated manuscripts and make all of the images and associated descriptive information freely available online under a Creative Commons license. Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the project has resulted in the digitization of more than 200 manuscripts and is entering its fifth year.
The Walters seeks a Digitization Specialist to join the project team on the next stage of its activities—the digitization of 113 Flemish manuscripts, including 80 books of hours. This is a two-year, temporary, grant-funded position ending on December 31, 2014. For more information, see http://thewalters.org/about/jobs/jobdetails.aspx?jd=163.
