University departments.



Your duties will include front-line reader services for a variety of readers,

of enquiries. You will promote and deliver training to library users in
support of the Reader Services Librarian and provide essential support for the
work on the collections including reclassification and inventory control
projects. You will also assist with re-shelving, book moves and transferring

lone working in the library for one shift per week (5.00 - 7.00pm) while a
