Preventive Conservation Voluntary Opportunity
British Library

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 2012.
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 UKP5,000. Reasonable expenses will include reimbursement
for flights, obtaining a visa, accommodation, and subsistence whilst
in London.
