Regent’s Park College (RPC), a Permanent Private Hall of the University of Oxford, has a full-time, grant- funded position for an Antiquarian Cataloguer. RPC has secured funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) and the Baptist Union’s Newington Court Fund to deliver an exciting project which will enable The Angus Library and Archive (The Angus) to realise its full potential as a treasure trove of primary sources.
We are therefore looking to recruit an experienced, highly knowledgeable and motivated person with formal experience in cataloguing procedures and practices to fill this important and interesting post. This position will focus on cataloguing the backlog of works in The Angus and developing a plan to catalogue, conserve or dispose of items using Aleph DCRB/AACR2cataloguing rules. The role will involve being responsible for all the cataloguing undertaken as part of the HLF project and will be the direct point of contact for all other cataloguing roles. The role requires knowledge of antiquarian cataloguing standards and experience in the use of external bibliographic databases (RLIN, OCLC, CURL, LOCIS). Knowledge and experience of Heritage Lottery Fund projects, and a knowledge of Latin or Greek or at least one modern European language would be desirable but not essential.

Closing date is 5pm Friday 24thMay 2013. Interviews will be held on Monday 3rd June 2013.
