Volunteers and Interns are an important part of the CRC and contribute a great deal towards our overall success.
A variety of roles are available working on a range of projects and tasks and we welcome enquiries from anyone interested in volunteering with us.
We also take placements and interns from a number of academic courses.
We are very pleased to offer an opportunity to participate in a free week-long course on library, museum and archive collections management we are running from 10th-14th July 2017.
This course will give participants an overview of the University's collections and practical sessions on conservation, engagement and exhibitions. This is a fantastic opportunity to gain skills and practical experience with library, museum and archive collections and would look great on your CV.
If you're interested in applying or have any questions please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org

I have been cataloguing Norman Dott’s case files which was a whole new concept to me as I had never dealt with patient records before. My whole experience has been so captivating and beneficial; it has provided me with such valuable skills, especially for archival work in the future.
During the 10 weeks I have been working on a project to conserve and re-house items from a collection of letters, legal documents and title deeds relating to the Royal Edinburgh Infirmary. I have had an amazing time here at the University and have learnt so much! I really feel like a part of the team.
Taking on volunteers and interns is a chance for experienced people with developed careers to pass on the knowledge and experience that university studies alone cannot give.
