Princeton, NJ: Project Cataloging Specialist, Rare Books, Princeton University Library

Princeton University Library seeks an experienced and productive rare book cataloger to catalog a diverse array of uncatalogued acquisitions. Materials fall into two main categories: rare art publications for the Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology, and general acquisitions for the Department of Rare Books and Special Collections. Imprints range from the 16th century to the 21st, and include many titles in languages other than English, chiefly French, German, Italian, and Latin. This is a backlog elimination project designed for sustained and effective cataloging of a large body of material. A high level of productivity is essential. Cataloging must respond to specialist client needs as identified by curators and selectors. Enhancements of earlier records may also be included. This position is part of the Rare Books Cataloging Team, whose members apply current professional standards to achieve sound intellectual control of special collections.
