Washing a Book – BYU Conservators

Washing a Book

I was recently asked to conserve an 1864 copy of The Latter-Day Saint’s Selection of Hymns from the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The book was in rough shape and the pages were stained throughout. However, the sewing in the textblock was sound and I didn’t want to disrupt that to wash the paper.

The Bodleian Libraries are looking for an experienced Paper Conservator to join the Conservation and Collection Care Department, based in the Weston Library. The department has 19 members of staff including book, paper and preventive conservators working to preserve, stabilise and improve access to the Bodleian Libraries' collections through preventive activities, interventive treatments, research, and by supporting an ongoing exhibitions programme.

You will be required to undertake conservation treatments on the Libraries’ rich and varied Special Collections, primarily treating works on paper. You will also assist in the preparation and mounting of materials for exhibitions and participate in promoting the work of the department.

With a recognised qualification in the conservation of paper or related materials, or equivalent training and experience, you will also have detailed knowledge and experience of high level paper conservation treatments and a broad knowledge of collection care activities. You will have excellent written and verbal communication skills and the ability to gather, analyse and present information clearly for different audiences. You will need a flexible approach to work, excellent inter-personal skills and the ability to work independently and as part of a team.

This is a full-time, fixed-term (maternity cover) post for approximately 6 months.

Owing to the nature of this post, the successful candidate will be required to undertake a Disclosure Scotland check as well as a financial background check. The possession of a criminal record or poor financial background will not necessarily prevent an applicant from obtaining this post, as all cases are judged individually according to the nature of the role and information provided.

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 by 12.00 midday on Wednesday 21 June 2017 can be considered. Interviews are expected to take place Wednesday 5 or Thursday 6 July 2017.
