Web Archive 2016: Archivist/Librarian, 15 month contract post
As part of the National Library of Ireland (NLI) programme for 2016 which includes the strand Remembering 1916, Recording 2016, the NLI intends to capture and preserve the content of key websites that tell the story of 2016 online. This includes the centenary commemorations of the 1916 Rising and also commemorations of the Irish experience of the Battle of the Somme. The 2016 Web Archive Project Archivist/Librarian will be responsible for working on this with NLI staff to ensure that relevant websites are identified and captured and that all aspects of the web archiving process are completed in relation to this project.
This is an excellent opportunity to work in a stimulating, challenging environment, and contribute to the creation of an online record of the documentary and intellectual output of Ireland in relation to the commemorative events of 2016.
