Library Assistant (Radcliffe Camera and the Wellcome Unit Library)

Applications for this vacancy closed on 24 July 2017 at 12:00PM
The Bodleian Libraries are seeking a customer-focused Library Assistant to
work primarily in the historic and iconic Radcliffe Camera, which houses the
History Faculty Library and other Humanities collections and in the Wellcome
Unit Library (WUL). Designed by James Gibbs and built in the mid-18th century,
the iconic Radcliffe Camera provides a range of library services to Bodleian
readers, in particular to staff and students of the History Faculty.



You will support the provision of Bodleian Radcliffe Camera library services
and assist in front line reader services work via the Lower Camera circulation
desk. You will also be required to re-sensitise returned books, sort them for
re-shelving and finally place them back on the shelf. The work is physical,
using ladders and trolleys to move and shelve books, but also requires a good
eye for detail and accuracy as well as the ability to work independently.



You will also provide occasional administrative support related to the
provision of online teaching material of the HFL. You will have basic
collection maintenance responsibilities for printed collections in the
Radcliffe Camera and WUL. In the Wellcome Unit Library your main duties will
also include dealing with enquires, helping readers use the library and search
tools and assisting Welcome Services. You must be confident working without
direct supervision as you will be expected to occasionally deputise for the
Wellcome Library Librarian-in-Charge.



The ability to communicate and the work effectively in a team are essential.
Ability to do routine library work under pressure, accuracy, reliability and
good interpersonal skills are also important for this post. Previous
experience of library work is essential and familiarity with ALEPH/ library
databases is desirable.



This is a permanent, full-time post. You will divide your time working 21.5
hours per week in the Radcliffe Camera and 15 hours per week in the Wellcome
Unit Library, except for June and July each year when you will work full-time
at the Radcliffe Camera.



This post is part of a pilot scheme testing a new Supporting Evidence Form in
place of the more usual ‘supporting statement’. You MUST submit a completed
Supporting Evidence Form in order for your application to be processed.
Covering letters, supporting statements and CVs will NOT form part of the
selection process. Please ensure that you carefully read the How to Apply
section provided in the Job Description, which you can download below along
with the required Supporting Evidence Form.



Only applications received online before 12.00 midday on Monday 24 July 2017
can be considered. Interviews are expected to take place on Thursday 17 August
2017.
