British Library: Chinese Curator

The British Library is now recruiting a Chinese specialist to manage and develop its Chinese language collections. 

The British Library holds an important collection of Chinese books and manuscripts, ranging from the earliest written records to electronic publications from this year, and totalling c. 90,000 books. We are looking for a curator to develop and manage these collections, enabling access to them by the widest possible range of audiences, in the UK as well as around the world. The successful candidate will join the Department of Asian and African Studies, and alongside their day-to-day curatorial responsibilities will have a particular responsibility for delivering a programme of work to convert old printed and card catalogues into online catalogue records.
