Job Description

Applications are invited for the post of Assistant Librarian (Reader Services) within the College Library. We are looking to recruit a qualified graduate librarian with several years’ experience in an academic environment. The Library serves 700 junior and senior members and many visiting scholars, and contains manuscripts, early printed books and a working stock of around 80,000 items. The post involves the selection and ordering of books and other materials, reader enquiry work, maintenance of the Library’s on-line and social media presence, and some retrospective cataloguing and re-classification. Full training will be given.

A basic knowledge and/or experience of working with MARC21, RDA, AACR2 and Dewey is desirable. In addition, as a member of the graduate team, the successful candidate will take part in a wider range of library duties, including user induction and the supervision of manuscript readers. Basic familiarity with one or more foreign languages, and an interest in rare and early-printed books, are an advantage. Good team-work with other members of Library staff (three full-time) will be important.

The salary for this post is £28,648 for a 35 hour working week. The College offers 33 days’ annual holiday entitlement; an auto-enrolled pension scheme and a medical cashback scheme, amongst other benefits.
