The University of Bath Library has a vacancy for a suitably qualified Librarian, working in the field of Cataloguing and Metadata. This position is available as a result of a secondment of the permanent post-holder.

Chief contacts would include the Library's Systems Librarian, the Acquisitions team and the Subject Librarian team, working together to provide the best possible information discovery experience for Library users.

The Library uses Ex Libris' Alma Library Management System and its resource discovery layer, Primo.  Part of the role would involve training your team in the efficient and accurate use of these tools and maintaining consistency of practice.
