Stuart Hall Library Call for Volunteers

The library team are looking for volunteers to help.

Stuart Hall Library

Dear Library users and friends,
The library team are looking for volunteers to help, immediately and / or over the summer. This would involve a commitment of one day per week for at least three months, or one or two full weeks over the summer, or a combination of both.

This is an opportunity for:

  • those with an interest in the research or subject areas of the Stuart Hall library
  • those with an interest in libraries 
  • current library school students 
  • art, curating, cultural studies, and politics students 
  • pre-library school applicants to acquire basic library skills
  • those looking to gain or improve cataloguing skills in relation to an art library collection

You will gain valuable insights into how a specialist arts library collection is managed and organised, and how artist residencies run in the library, by working on tasks which may include:

  • Indexing and abstracting
  • Cataloguing
  • Introducing visitors to the artist in residence exhibition
  • Collection care
  • Image collections
  • Guest blogging
  • Library tours, talks and events
  • Supporting Iniva's public events programme in the library
  • Specific projects in consultation with the Library Manager

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, arts events and related areas. 

Lunch and travel expenses up to £10 per day will be reimbursed.

Please email a CV and covering letter to Stephanie Moran, Library Manager, smoran@iniva.org explaining why you would like to volunteer at the Stuart Hall Library.
