PRONI Volunteer Policy
PRONI has developed a Volunteer policy and currently has a number of volunteers working on three projects.
Public Services Enhanced Access to Records
The enhanced access to records volunteer will assist with indexing and transcribing from original records, eg name heavy index lists and/or enhanced cataloguing descriptions, to a level of detail which would not be part of PRONI’s standard cataloguing process.
Digital Image Library
The Digital Image Library volunteer will upload digitised copies of archival material into the PRONI Digital Image Library system. This involves enriching digital image descriptions with information from the PRONI catalogue, plus adding keywords and subject terms to the images before uploading them into a searchable image database system.
Young and Mackenzie Collection
The Young and Mackenzie volunteer will assist in the organisation of architectural plans and drawings within the Young and Mackenzie collection. The volunteer will prepare an index of individual plans and drawings, organise plans and drawings in date order within individual architectural schemes and clean individual plans and drawings within the collection.
Please return completed applications to email@example.com by Friday 31st January 2020.
