Heritage Collections Cataloguer

Dunedin Public Libraries invites applications for the position of Heritage Collections Cataloguer.  This is a full time, fixed term position for ten months from September 2007 until July 2008.

Dunedin Public Libraries' Heritage Collections are significant cultural assets, highly regarded for their literary and historical merit both in New Zealand and around the world.  Sir Alfred Hamish Reed's original donation includes the works of Charles Dickens and Samuel Johnson, as well as books about printing history. Later bequests include writings by Sir Walter Scott, Robert Burns and the Farjeon Family. The material is mainly published works from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.

We are looking for someone to create full descriptive cataloguing records online with appropriate access points to meet the needs of current and future users, both local and international.  Our ideal candidate will have experience of cataloguing heritage materials in an online environment with a sound knowledge of relevant standards and tools. They will be scrupulously attentive to detail and have an empathy with rare materials.  They will research doggedly and effectively to resolve bibliographic and authority problems. A background in the Humanities is strongly preferred. Specialist subject knowledge relating to one or more of the Libraries' heritage collections would be very desirable.

Further details and application forms are available from the Customer Services Agency in the Civic Centre, telephone 477-4000, P O Box 5045, Dunedin or
