The Natural History Museum is seeking an enthusiastic and knowledgeable person to help with the creation of a Digital Library as an extension of the services offered to Museum staff and to others via the Web, co-ordinating with European and global digital library developments to make our books and original artwork about the natural world available to all in digital form.
