Oxford University Computing Services is looking for a Project Officer (part-time, fixed-term) to work on the RunCoCo project. The work involves:

 * running a communication campaign and developing engaging Web content to successfully promote the RunCoCo project and support its user community
 * managing project events and overseeing the production of training materials
 * providing advice to a number of community digitisation projects

Details and an application form are available from http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/jobs/ Completed applications must be received by 12 noon on 26th March 2010, and interviews will be held on 7th April 2010. 

RunCoCo is a JISC-funded project (based at the Learning Technologies Group of OUCS) which uses training activities to encourage the formation of community collections. In community collection projects the cost of digitising photographs (or films or interviews) is spread out across the community (education and public sectors) and not borne entirely by the host institution. The community involvement sometimes focuses more on users tagging or commenting on existing collections, rather than the public contributing digital items. RunCoCo will demonstrate how successful collections can be put together by smaller individual units than the expensive digitisation projects that receive funding from traditional (and now severely reduced) sources. More details are on the website http://runcoco.oucs.ox.ac.uk/ 

Best wishes, Ally
