Museums & Galleries Edinburgh are looking for Collections Documentation Volunteers! You will be diving into the history of the collections by transcribing our Collections Registers. These are the entry point that our objects come through on their way to being museum collections and you’ll help us out by transcribing the registers, making this collections information much more accessible. The project will be running for the next 6 months, unless we zoom through and finish before that!

We are looking for availability of a minimum of 4 hours a week, but that can be split up however suits you as you’ll be working from home. The work can be very repetitive in nature, so please be aware of this when applying for the role. We need volunteers to have access to the internet and preferably access to Microsoft Excel. All required training will be provided, no experience necessary but any collections documentation experience is a bonus.

If you have any questions then please do get in touch via or note your interest by filling in the form below by Friday 30 April.
