Volunteering with us

Senate House Library has long encouraged voluntary work opportunities with collections for mutual benefit.

Examples of opportunities include and are not limited to the following:

  • Short-term placements for students following a recognised course in archival administration, conservation or librarianship leading to a professional qualification; or in a related subject.
  • Longer-term placements for individuals wishing to obtain experience prior to applying for and/or taking up a recognised course in archival administration, conservation or librarianship leading to a professional qualification.
  • Longer-term arrangements for individuals interested in archives, manuscripts, conservation or librarianship, who wish to work on a discrete project or collection.

If you are interested in volunteering, please check the UoL vacancies page to see if there are any vacancies available. We are currently open to expressions of interest for volunteering in the archives.
