The volunteer will have the chance to learn and understand one of the core purposes of the British Library by working alongside Library employees and to gain knowledge, identify and manage risks to collections; identify best practice for handling material, disaster preparedness, integrated pest management, and creating and storing surrogate copies. 

The volunteer will be reimbursed for reasonable expenses with a stipend of £5,000. Reasonable expenses will include reimbursement for flights, obtaining a visa, accommodation, and subsistence whilst in London.
