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.
