I currently catalogue lots of things, but no rare books, alas. RB cataloguing is something I am very interested in doing - it's just a question of how to go about getting the experience. Looking forward to finding out more about the world of rare books!

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.
