Calling for volunteers. We are looking for people to join our friendly volunteer crew at the NFSA. If you like indexing, or working with databases, or reading film journals, this might be for you as our job is to index film journal articles for an international database. Training will be provided!
WHEN: Wednesdays, 2.30-4.30pm (you can offer weekly, fortnightly, monthly, ad hoc, as suits your schedule) WHERE: NFSA Library
Please note that the NFSA may not be able to accept everyone, as overall numbers need to be managed, and there is some formal paperwork to complete.
