The post holder will have day to day responsibility for producing a digital edition of William Hunter’s original library catalogue using 18th century sources in Special Collections, overseeing the work of a small transcription team and ensuring outcomes are widely disseminated and publicised. This project is funded by Wellcome (Research Resources for Medical Historians).
