Cataloging Volunteer, Paige Memorial Library, Hardwick MA
posted November 26, 2013 4:49 PM
The Paige Memorial Library in Hardwick, Massachusetts is seeking volunteers to help with a large cataloging and re-organization project. This is a great opportunity for LIS students to gain hands-on experience working in a small, rural public library. Volunteers will work directly with the library's Director and would take on a variety of tasks, including copy cataloging of new and backlogged items, creating spine labels, making dust-jacket covers, minor book repair, and re-organizing our Children's department. Cataloging and/or library experience are not required. Transportation from GSLIS West to the library may be arranged upon request.
- A desire to learn basic copy cataloging skills.
- A desire to learn how to work with Koha Integrated Library System.
- A minimum commitment of 10 hours (may be spread over several weeks), though preference will be given to volunteers willing to commit more time.
- Work must be completed while the library is open (Tuesdays 3 pm - 8 pm, Wednesdays 11 am - 4 pm, Thursdays 1 pm - 7 pm, and Saturdays 9 am - 12 pm).
