Positions at British Library

Two Conservators
The British Library

The British Library is reorganising and relaunching its "Adopt a 
Book" scheme, whereby the public and other donors raise funds to 
conserve parts of the library's incomparable collections which could 
not be treated by government grant-in-aid.

The British Library is looking for two conservators to work on high 
priority material from the library's varied collection. The 
contracts will initially be for 3 years, based in studios in the new 
building at St.Pancras, working alongside permanent conservation 

The postholders will work closely together on a wide range of 
collection material. A conservation degree or equivalent experience 
is required, together with demonstrable manual dexterity in 
conserving printed books and manuscripts and experience in paper 
conservation, book conservation and binding. These are very 
practical oriented bench jobs and the ability to work quickly 
without compromising standards is critical. The capacity to work 
well with others is essential, as is a good presentational manner, 
given that one of the roles of the postholders will be to explain 
their work to existing and future donors.

Salary will be in the range of UKP15,930 to UKP28,721 depending on 
experience, range of skills and ability.

For further details and an application form, please email Shad 
Mehmet <shad.mehmet [at] bl__uk> or Fax +44 171 412 7777. The closing date 
for the receipt of completed application forms is 15th January 2000.

The British Library is an equal opportunity employer
