8.9.17 – Conference Volunteer
Sarah P’s comments: This would be a great opportunity for a bi-lingual librarian…
Good morning Sarah,
I´m a librarian in Colombia and I enjoy following your informative and useful blog “The traveling librarian”.
I work at Invemar a public/non profit organization which conducts scientific research on marine and coastal ecosystems here in Colombia.
I’m writing to ask if you can help us via your blog in finding a volunteer to assist us in late November (27th – 30th) where we will be offering an international course on digital repositories. The primary responsibility of this person would be to do real time Spanish/English translations during the course.
A strong command of both languages is important and we would prefer someone with either library or records management education.
We would like to host the volunteer (lodging and meals) for one week, preferably if he/she could arrive 3-4 days ahead of the start date to prepare. It could be a great experience and a wonderful chance to enjoy Santa Marta and Colombian Caribbean Coast.
Thank you very much,
María del Pilar Mora
