Moreland City Band Archiving Project- help required

Moreland City Band (MCB) are looking for a reliable person or two to supervise two people who will be archiving the MCB library over the next six months. The project involves scanning the MCB library into PDF files which will be stored electronically. The supervisor will have to be on site to assist with questions, and to make sure the sheet music is properly scanned and recorded. The supervisor will have to be on site for 6 hours, at least one day a week. The project will take place three days a week at the MCB band hall, 16 Cross St, East Brunswick.

This is a voluntary position. The supervisor will have to have a current Police Check. MCB will reimburse application fees for a police check if the supervisor does not already have one.

It would suit somebody who is interested in the history of brass band music, and is interested in preserving a wonderful legacy.

Interested parties can contact Howard Norsetter at hnorsetter@gmail.com or call him directly at 0412585314.
