Position at Auckland City Libraries

From: Melanie Johnson <melanie.johnson>
Date: Thursday, June 14, 2007
Book Conservator
Auckland City Libraries

Auckland City Libraries delivers a premier library service from its
seventeen sites within Auckland City and has the largest and most
diverse collection of paper documentary heritage resources in a
public library in New Zealand. The Heritage collection, valued at
over $140 million contains unique New Zealand Maori and European
material dating back to the 11th Century.

The Book Conservator is responsible for the preservation and
conservation of Auckland City Libraries' collections with overall
responsibility for running the preservation unit. To be successful
in this role you will need a strong conservation focus as well as
ability to supervise a small team. We will be looking for
significant book conservator experience--preferably more than 5
years. As this role is based in a public library, there will be
customer contact so your customer service skills will be well honed.

Challenges in the role include preserving collections that are in a
wide variety of formats and making them accessible. You will also
work on the prioritisation and execution of preventive conservation
programmes in response to customer demands and library needs. Also,
you'll have responsibility for developing and implementing
sustainable preservation policies and guidelines.

Auckland offers a unique lifestyle--a city where you are never more
than half an hour from beautiful beaches. Whether you're into
surfing or sailing Auckland has it all. In winter, you can pack up
the car on a Friday evening and be on the snow first thing Saturday
morning. As an accredited employer with NZ immigration, Auckland
City can assist with the immigration process if needed.
