That is so beautiful. Thanks for passing it along. I have to admit, every time I see a book that I cataloged leave the library, I feel a warm, fuzzy feeling. Like watching your kids grow up and leave for college =)

Thanks for helping to share this story. Every reader his/her book; every book its reader. Long live the efforts of librarians to connect people with resources.

I wish I could find the button I scored from OCLC at some point; I'd wear it proudly again:

Cataloging Is A Public Service!

Christine Schwartz

Thanks for the comments. I've always thought of cataloging as a public service focused on the user (long before it was fashionable, i.e., pre-Internet).

Anecdotally, I once found a 16th century antiphonary manuscript stacked away is a supply closet. So, I know we all have hidden treasures just waiting to be cataloged!
