Katherine Parker's picture

Imago Mundi: The International Journal for the History of Cartography is recruiting a second individual who, along with Colin Dupont (KBR, Royal Library of Belgium), will prepare the bibliography and indexes which are part of the journal’s offerings. The indexed bibliography is the most comprehensive list of publications in the history of cartography and includes items from around the world. 

The bibliography is global in scope, with entries in many languages. Applicants with competencies in Chinese are especially welcome. The position would be well suited to a librarian or individual with research experience in the history of cartography, but is open to all. The position comes with an annual stipend of £250.

The journal is published with Taylor and Francis twice annually, in January and July, in paper and online editions, with contributions to the bibliography in each issue. The editorial team works remotely and communicates primarily via email.

The successful candidate would gather, format, and index the newest publications, working closely with Colin and the journal’s national representatives and editors. The bibliographers submit a new list of sources twice a year and review proofs of the bibliography. 

Prospective applicants should send a brief cv and an email detailing their interest to Questions can also be directed to that address.
