We are currently interviewing for a Library Scanning Assistant on site at Stanford, CA, who is able to electronically scan books using a Plustek OpticBook scanner. The digital images of the book are then stored to our database where our library catalogers are able to create an electronic record for the client.
Data entry experience is necessary for entering the physical information of the book (size dimensions, pages, and additional elements) into our local database. Candidates with proficiency in scanning as well as correctly identifying descriptive information will excel in this position.
The books are primarily written in Arabic so native speakers are preferred but it is not a requirement. Applicants with previous book handling or record scanning experience are strongly encouraged to apply.
There are about 25,000 books that require scanning so the duration of this temporary contract position will be about 6 months. This position may lead to a long-term position after completion.
A mandatory background check and professional references will be required after the preliminary interview. In-person interviews will be scheduled after an initial phone screening process, and we encourage candidates who are able to commit to the entire duration of the project to apply.
Please note that this is not a remote position and applicants will have to work on site.
