Bishopsgate Institute is looking for volunteers to help catalogue books from our London Collection. With a particular focus on the City of London and Spitalfields, this collection describes all major aspects of the character of London and its social, economic and architectural development.
We require enthusiastic, self-motivated and well-organised volunteers who are able to commit to half a day each week. Basic PC skills are essential; some experience of library cataloguing is desirable. This voluntary position provides an excellent chance to build experience in library cataloguing. Full training in Adlib Library Management System will be provided. Reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.
Bishopsgate Institute is situated on the busy thoroughfare of Bishopsgate just three minutes walk from Liverpool Street Station, and provides cultural and heritage opportunities in an area otherwise dominated by businesses and City life. Bishopsgate Library, part of the Institute, offers free public access to its unique special collections within the environment of its listed Victorian reading room and its archives include the papers of Charles Bradlaugh, George Jacob Holyoake, historian Raphael Samuel and the records of the London Co-operative Society. Further information on the Institute and the Library can be found at: http://www.bishopsgate.org.uk<http://www.bishopsgate.org.uk/>.
