Cataloguing Clinic via Zoom with Jillian Hiscock

May 27 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm


At the 27 May Clinic, Jillian will revisit the process of book cataloguing, both published and unpublished material. What is the information that should be captured and what is the nice-to-add extras that can be useful.

Jillian Hiscock, the RHSV Collections Manager, started these cataloguing clinics during the early days of COVID and they suit Zoom very well. The clinics run for an hour from 11am – 12noon on the 4th Thursday of each month. It is a relaxed gathering of people who are finding their way through the intricacies of cataloguing material in historical collections which, as we all know, fall between a library and a museum with sometimes a bit of art gallery thrown in.  With our membership scattered across Australia please remember that this is Melbourne time – AEDT in summer and AEST in winter.

Jillian always prepares some material on some specific queries but questions are encouraged and, remember, a problem shared is a problem halved. The clinics are conversational in format rather than a seminar. If you are new to cataloguing or an old hand you will find plenty to interest you in these sessions. Jillian often has material which is emailed out to attendees after the clinic.

The remaining clinics for 2021 will be held (all via Zoom) on these dates:
