That sounds like a great opportunity you have had. Have you been working with a rare books cataloguer in particular? Does the course you are planning to do have a module on rare books in it?

Subject: [CIG-E-FORUM] Getting into rare book cataloguing
I am very excited to take part in this forum. My name is Lucy and I am currently a Library Graduate Trainee and have had the fortunate opportunity to catalogue some of the books we have in the archives and special collections at my current Library. Although these books date from early 20th century, it has been a real joy to create records for some potentially very rare books. I am keen to hear more about how to progress towards a career working with rare books as it's something that I am very passionate about.
