Volunteers

So you want to be a volunteer with us? Excellent! We will be happy to have you onboard.

Currently, we are looking for volunteers to help us with cataloguing, describing, and keywording our images. This task is vital for access to our collections, as descriptions and keywords help us understand what is in the photograph and optimise our search.

All our volunteering is done remotely, so all you need is an internet connection and a good pair of eyes. We will provide you with training on our database.

We are especially interested in hearing from those within the fishing industry, both former and current! Your expertise would be invaluable in helping our collection become more in-depth and informative.

Volunteer recruitment process

  1. Email photo@scotfishmuseum.org to express your interest in volunteering with us.
