The Marx Memorial Library is home to a unique collection of archives and books on Marxism, the trade union movement and the British left. For further information about the Library and its work please visit our website at http://www.marx-memorial-library.org/
We are currently looking for volunteers to work 1-2 days per week assisting with two major projects:
1. To write up collection level descriptions for some of our smaller archive collections according to our house style. This is an excellent opportunity to get some archive description experience.
2. A special project to work on the papers of artist & writer Gertrude Elias. Her artworks need digitising and re-packaging. There may also be scope for assistance in a broader outreach project associated with this collection.
Travel expenses will be covered and efforts will be made to ensure that candidates learn about a range of archival practice and procedures.
A familiarity with archive work and an interest in Marxism and the trade union movement are desirable.
