|End of Closed Week, 2012|
Stuart Hall Library, part of Iniva at Rivington Place, is a special Library focusing on international visual arts.
The Library will be closed for a week in August (12-16) to undertake essential Library housekeeping work, and 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 including:
- Journals maintenance
- Basic catalogue work
- Collection care
Professional Library qualifications are not essential, but knowledge of how to use a Library and searching catalogues is required. You will need to be available for three days, from Monday 12 to Wednesday 14 August, 10.30-4.30.
Lunch and travel expenses will be reimbursed.
Please email a CV and covering letter to Sonia Hope, Library Manager explaining why you would like to volunteer at the Stuart Hall Library.
Closing date: Friday 2 August.
