Posted Monday, 29th July 2013
RPC Library Service – The Angus
Full-time (1.5 years fixed contract)
£24,000 per annum
Regent’s Park College (RPC), a Permanent Private Hall of the University of Oxford, has a full-time, grant- funded position for a 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 in collaboration with the Antiquarian Cataloguer, using Aleph, AACR2, DCRM(B) and an awareness of RDAcataloguing rules. The role requires knowledge of cataloguing standards and experience in the use of external bibliographic databases (RLIN, OCLC, CURL, LOCIS). Experience and knowledge of cataloguing procedures is essential as well as a keen eye for detail and excellent IT literacy. Knowledge of a Classical or at least one modern European language would be desirable but not essential.
For more information regarding this position or to request an information pack please contact the Project Administrator, firstname.lastname@example.org or (01865)288142.
Closing date is 5pm Friday 20th September 2013. Interviews will be held on Thursday 26th September.
