Image Cataloguer
Design Council Slide Collection Cataloguing and Digitisation Project

Faculty of Art and Design, Manchester Metropolitan University

Salary range: 18702 to 21050
One year contract

Applications are invited for the post of Image Cataloguer for a one-year 
project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). The 
Design Council Slide Collection was transferred to the Manchester 
Metropolitan University in 1995 and contains almost 22,500 images, mainly 
of British design from the early 1950s to 1990. As a result of earlier 
phases of the Design Council Slide Collection Cataloguing and Digitisation 
Project, almost half of the collection is available for educational use 
via the website of AHDS Visual Arts (http://visualarts.ahds.ac.uk/). A 
recent award from the AHRC has made it possible to continue this work and 
make a further 4000 images available online. The successful candidate will 
play a key role in this project to enhance the accessibility of an 
important resource.

Further details and an application form are available from the MMU jobs

The closing date for applications is 11 October 2007
