QMU has secured funding to collect, catalogue and preserve materials associated with Scottish Homecoming 2009 for the benefit of people in both Scotland and across the world.
It is envisaged that the archive, which will include catalogues, brochures, adverts, photography, planning documents and interviews with key decision makers, will be a useful resource for professionals and scholars involved in tourism and economic development both within Scotland and internationally. It will also assist QMU in developing a model archival process for the modern events industry that will allow organisers to preserve and transmit the outcomes of their events to various audiences.
We are looking for a Project Archivist to ensure that the key documentation, ephemera and other materials associated with Homecoming Scotland 2009 are systematically archived, catalogued to recognised archival standards, preserved and made available for research purposes to benefit the widest possible constituency, including the design scheduling and coordination of a travelling exhibit. The Project Archivist will also assist in the design and implementation of a dedicated website to promote the archive to a wider audience.
If this post is of any interest to staff in your institution, more information and an application form can be found at https://webrecruit.qmu.ac.uk or they may contact me for an informal chat. The closing date is August 16.
