A snapshot from the Cole Library …

March 13, 2015

I didn’t work directly with this book ; Titelkupfer zu Dr. Bloch’s Fischwerk by Marcus Elieser Blochfrom the Cole Collection. I have a work experience student at my side for one day a week and as she has become more  confident she is takes over some of my tasks. While I watch over and share knowledge ; we have begun to reverse roles for an hour or two.  It has become a gentle, good and productive way for a student with plenty of academic know-how to gain hands on experience before finding work in a library or museum.

So this item from the Cole Collection had a record on the old card catalogue, needed to be bought into the 21st century and given space on the ‘database’ not a difficult job for a library assistant or in this case her shadow. With the technical stuff  done we hand it to a subject cataloguer to look at the fine details such as provenance, binding, author, illustrator. etc etc. But not before we look at the pictures ….
