The Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) at the University of Maryland in College Park seeks a web programmer to work on two grant funded projects.

The second will integrate MITH’s web-based multimedia annotation tool (AXE) into the Center for History and New Media’s world-renowned citation management system, Zotero.
