Dear Library users and friends,
The library team are looking for volunteers to help. This is an opportunity for:
those with an interest in libraries
pre-library school applicants to acquire basic library skills
You will gain valuable insights into how a special library collection is managed and organised by working on tasks which may include:
- Indexing and abstracting
- Journals maintenance
- Basic catalogue work
- Collection care
- Archive listing
There will also be a range of other tasks, some of which are quite mundane and some more interesting. Professional library qualifications are not essential, but knowledge of how to use a library and search catalogues is required. We can provide training in library and information work, research skills and related areas. You will need to be available approximately one day per week for at least two months.
Lunch and travel expenses up to £10 per day will be reimbursed. Please email a CV and covering letter to Nick Brown, Library Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org explaining why you would like to volunteer at the Stuart Hall Library.
Best wishes from the library team at Iniva
Stuart Hall Library, Iniva, Rivington Place, EC2A 3BA
