Soul of Canada and Circle Teachings
Location: Edmonton, Alberta
Compensation: Negotiable depending on experience,
We are a small group of history researchers and publishers specializing in story calendars, books, and other multimedia materials. We focus on Canadian history, research, photography, and the production of other Canadian content. As a small local business, we are currently attempting to expand our horizons and move into curating a private collection of our amassed research materials.
Description and Duties
As a small history company based in Edmonton, we are looking for an archival assistant/consultant to help with organizing and cataloguing our private research collection. Our files are both digital and hard copy, and are currently in need of a professional and experienced consultant to organize them effectively. The files include a large number of books, about 3000, along with photographs and videos both digital and hard-copy. The archivist would be working with a team of historians and other employees to catalogue and organize the archive. Our goal is to make our materials as efficiently accessible as possible. Along with this, part of the consultant's job would be to train some of the staff already working at Soul of Canada in how to maintain, access, and organize the collection appropriately. This job would be part-time and short term, approximately 1 month's duration at about 20 hours per week. However, future opportunities may arise for consulting with us about our archives down the line. Working from home would likely not be an option, and the archive consultant would be working hands-on with our materials.
A certificate in archives and records management or an equivalent degree in library and information studies is required. Any experience in teaching laypersons about archival maintenance would be an asset.
In terms of personality, we are looking for someone who is both efficient and patient.
