Preventive conservation voluntary placement

The Collection Care department at the British Library is pleased to
announce that they will be offering a Preventive Conservation
Voluntary Placement for three months starting in September 2013.

    <URL:http://www.bl.uk/aboutus/stratpolprog/collectioncare/internships/presworkopportunity.html>

This opportunity has been created to further the aim of the British
Library in the field of Preventive Conservation via the
dissemination of key skills and techniques in this area. The
successful individual will be given a unique learning opportunity in
a working national library with a view to applying the skills and
knowledge obtained in their own field of work. The volunteer will
have the chance to learn and understand one of the core purposes of
the British Library by working alongside Library employees and to
gain knowledge, identify and manage risks to collections; identify
best practice for handling material, disaster preparedness,
integrated pest management, and creating and storing surrogate
copies.

The volunteer will be reimbursed for reasonable expenses with a
stipend of UKP8,000.  Reasonable expenses will include reimbursement
for flights, obtaining a visa, accommodation, and subsistence while
in London.

Before registering your interest, please read the criteria document
