Exploring Careers in Libraries

Exploring Careers in Libraries
17th January 2023, 10.00-12.00, Online

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to work in a library? Do you like working with people and information? If you answered yes to either of these questions, do come and join us on 17th January to find out about career options in libraries and to hear what working at the Bodleian Libraries could be like. The Bodleian Libraries include the Bodleian Library as well as 26 other libraries across Oxford including major research libraries and faculty, department and institute libraries.  The Libraries hold many unique special collections as well as providing access to many digital resources that users can access remotely. You will gain an understanding of some of the roles you could do as well as how you can develop a career in libraries. Many people think of librarians as quiet gatekeepers of old, dusty books, but the focus of most library roles is on people and information, and how we can bring the two together and whilst books are an important part of libraries a lot of what we do is digital. We will talk about:

  • Options for working in libraries
  • Sectors and roles
  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
  • Digital Libraries
  • Reader Services
  • Collections

There will be a short break during the session and there will be time for questions. To book a place, please email: staff-dev@bodleian.ox.ac.uk.
