This is an exciting opportunity for a highly motivated and proactive
individual to work at the heart of one of the world's major research
libraries. Cambridge University Library is a major scholarly
resource, not only for the University's staff and students, but also
nationally and internationally. It has been collecting books and
manuscripts since the 15th century and now has one of the greatest
and most accessible collections in the world. As a legal deposit
library for almost 300 years, the University Library also has
comprehensive holdings of UK publications, as well as extensive
collections built up through purchase over several centuries.

The successful candidate will lead all aspects of preservation and
conservation at Cambridge University Library. S/he will manage the
staff and operations of the Conservation and Bindery Departments in
caring for the Library's collections--from newly published printed
material to special collections in manuscript, printed and artefact
form--and in playing a key role in supporting exhibitions work and
digitisation projects.

S/he will have excellent management, organisational and
communication skills and ensure that the Library is at the forefront
of current thinking and best practice with regard to preservation
and conservation for libraries and archives. S/he will contribute to
wider strategic and operational planning for the Special Collections
Division as a whole.
