Apologies for cross-posting

Would you like to contribute to a new core collection? Do you have relevant subject area expertise and/or collections management experience?

We are looking for a motivated team of volunteers to help identify and quality-check titles for specific subject categories of the new core collection, which is designed to the needs of healthcare workers in first-referral hospitals (e.g. district hospitals) in sub-Saharan Africa. Technical support, instructions and oversight will be provided to all volunteers, and each volunteer will be issued with a certificate on successful completion of their allocated role. Volunteers will work in partnership with new colleagues as part of this exciting development opportunity. If you would like to join our team of volunteers, a covering letter and CV should be sent to<> by 8th April 2024. Please click here< for further information and how to apply.
