Volunteers required for Lewes Library Project –

Are you reasonably computer confident?
Looking for a volunteering opportunity which can be done either at home or in the Society’s Library in Lewes?
The Society’s library is currently looking for assistance with 2 major projects:
  1. Recording details of articles and search terms as part of our project to digitise the Society’s annual publication known as Sussex Archaeological Collections – this requires access to a PC with MS Excel but does not require visits to Lewes as the data can be transmitted electronically. It is anticipated that this project will end by December 2020.
  2. Improving the data in the Society’s online library catalogue – this involves being in the library in Barbican House, Lewes for at least a half day a week on a regular basis.
