No, this job posting does not use that viscous L-word, but is this not what a steward is? This seems like a great opportunity for a librarian seeking to shift into the public administration sector.
Let's take a look at some snippets:
- The creation and maintenance of GIS datasets for spatial data and metadata that will be broadly distributed and used through a centralized spatial data warehouse to facilitate data sharing.
- The GIS Data Steward is the authority for specific spatial data.
- Stewardship responsibilities may include hydrography, natural resources and basemap elements.
- This position follows acceptable procedures used in the data maintenance phase including update, backup, and data archive.
