Vacancy for an Information Analyst (Digital Preservation) at the British Library

The British Library has a vacancy for an Information Analyst in the Digital Preservation Team.

This is an exciting opportunity to gain some practical experience in digital preservation and help ensure that the Library’s digital collections are preserved for future generations. As an Information Analyst, you will work as part of a dynamic team to assess the condition of our digital collections, gather and analyse data about technical environments for digital preservation, and provide quality assurance for Library projects. You will also work with colleagues elsewhere in the Library to help ensure that long term preservation and access requirements are realised.

The post holder will need to have some knowledge and transferable experience of working with digital collections. You should have a good understanding of digital preservation challenges as well as the importance of lifecycle management.
