Current Opportunities

  • W&M Libraries Cataloging & Metadata Department is seeking volunteers to help with one-time projects. We need volunteers to help us move library materials, scan barcodes to assist with inventory, and relabel materials. Some experience with Library of Congress classification is helpful. This job requires the ability to lift 20 pounds, push a cart full of books, reach, stoop, and climb step stools to retrieve and shelve materials.
