Part time Content and Metadata Officer (2 days per week)

Wellcome Library

Salary c. £22,000 - £25,000 p.a. pro rata (depending on experience) 

plus excellent benefits including final salary pension 

The Wellcome Trust is the largest charity in the UK. It funds innovative 
biomedical research, in the UK and internationally, with the aim of improving 
human and animal health. Set within Wellcome Collection, the Trust’s exciting 
new exhibition venue, the Wellcome Library houses one of the world’s greatest 
collections of books, manuscripts, archives, images and films on the history of 
medicine from the earliest times to the present day. More than 25,000 readers 
visit the Library each year, including historians, academics, students, health 
professionals and consumers, journalists, artists and members of the general 
public. 

The Library is now moving into a phase of large- scale digitisation of its rare 
materials – to ensure both preservation and long-term access. 

Working with the e-Strategy department, and liaising extensively with the 
Cataloguing Services Manager, collection Heads, and Imaging staff, you will 
contribute to the creation and enrichment of the Library’s high quality online 
catalogue and enable effective access to information about its holdings – in 
particular those of the digital collections. This will include all aspects of 
cataloguing, classifying and subject indexing of new and existing material. You 
will also be implementing the Library’s rights clearance strategy for digitised 
collections. 

You must therefore be able to demonstrate:

A postgraduate qualification in librarianship or equivalent.

Experience of cataloguing work and knowledge of current practice for 
cataloguing/classification of library materials including MARC and AACR2 
Experience of automated library systems, MS Access databases, and good 
general IT skills Meticulous and detailed approach towards your work Good 
communication and interpersonal skills with both internal and external contacts.

Initiative, enthusiasm and a flexible approach to your work.

Reading knowledge of European languages (preferably German) and experience 
in ISAD(G) cataloguing, although not essential, would be an advantage.

Applicants must be able to work two days per week on Thursday and Friday. 
This post is offered on a fixed term contract until April 2011. 

To apply, please send a CV (including current salary details) and a covering 
letter explaining how you feel you meet these criteria and confirmation you are 
able to work Thursday/Friday to: HR, Wellcome Trust, 215 Euston Road, 
London NW1 2BE or by e-mail [log in to unmask] 

Application deadline: 10 October 2008
