Fixed Term

We are delighted to announce an exciting opportunity for a Project Archivist to join the Archives and Modern Manuscripts team at the Bodleian Libraries. 

This role will support metadata creation and management activities associated with cataloguing and digitisation of archives and manuscripts being undertaken at the Bodleian Libraries. You will be critical to ensuring that metadata generated meets the Bodleian Libraries’ metadata guidelines, optimising its potential for supporting discovery, use and management of collections.

You will achieve this through transforming metadata from unstructured forms into Bodleian-approved forms, supporting colleagues working on cataloguing collection materials, quality assurance in relation to relevant metadata, and taking responsibility for publication and updating of relevant metadata in internal systems and in our public-facing catalogue, Bodleian Archives & Manuscripts.

Due to the nature of this post, the successful candidate will be required to undertake a satisfactory basic Disclosure and Barring Service check due to work involving handling highly valuable items.

The role requires lifting, carrying and moving collection material and library records, by hand and using trolleys, kickstools and lifts.
