Further information on the CRC Honorary Fellows scheme
The Centre for Research Collections (CRC) has a long tradition of working closely with scholars, information professionals and researchers who want to devote significant time to work on our collections. This work often has wider benefits for other people using the collections, for example through the creation of catalogue records, exhibition interpretation or research publications. Although this does not replace paid professional staff, people who generously give their time and expertise are an increasingly important part of the CRC team.
We want to strengthen the collaboration and to recognise these individuals through the creation of a Fellows scheme. The document provides a framework for the award, management and expected outputs of Fellowships, and describes the undertakings on both sides. It is being publicised in order to grow the number of Fellows, who we would like to see develop as a group.
A strong cohort of Fellows will be invaluable in working together to provide advocacy and additional support for the CRC as our collections and services continue to expand.
The scheme is separate to the University scheme https://www.ed.ac.uk/student-administration/graduations/honorary/fellowship-procedure
