[BKARTS] Conservation Technician Position

Conservation Technician
Hagley Museum and Library

Hagley Museum and Library announces a 12-month position working with flat
paper, books, photographic materials, and related objects. Dedicated to the
preservation and understanding of America’s economic and technological
heritage, our library houses an important collection of manuscripts,
archives, books, pamphlets, trade catalogs, photographs, audiovisual
materials, and ephemera.

Reporting to the Library Conservator, the Conservation Technician assists
with daily operations including mold removal, surface cleaning, disbinding,
washing, mending, lining, inpainting, binding, rebacking, housing, and
related conservation tasks including exhibit preparation. All major projects
require a detailed treatment report supported by photographic documentation.

The Technician also will help process the Raymond Loewy Archive, an NEH
grant-funded project that requires surface cleaning and mending 50 linear
feet of documents, stabilizing 40 scrapbooks for a microfilming and digital
imaging contract with Preservation Resources, and managing an acetate
stripping and duplication contract with Chicago Albumen Works, among other
tasks. Other interesting projects slated for the next year include
restoration of the PSFS architectural model and packing our current exhibit
Raymond Loewy: Designs for a Consumer Culture for travel to multiple venues.
A mini web version of the exhibit can be viewed at www.hagley.lib.de.us

The salary is $23,300 with generous benefits for a one-year period.
Applications are due by July 1, 2003. The start date may be arranged between
August and October 2003. Please email or send a letter and resume to:
