Tip Jar

Some advice for others doing a similar project:

  • If possible make sure you have your labels and labeling materials before you start cataloging. This is a good way to avoid taking away valuable cataloging time to work through your backlog of cataloged books.
  • Acquire a book cart to house items in transition.  Although there is plenty of room to stack books around the library, a book cart or two would go a long way towards keeping things a little more organized.
  • Measure your shelves before you start cataloging and make decisions on the oversize collection.
  • If you are using LibraryWorld, it is a lot faster when searching for books with commonly used titles (like Antiques or Shakers) to type in title info plus author or ISBN.
