The project to convert the card catalogue of printed books in the Representative Church Body Library to a computerized catalogue has reached another milestone – 40,000 items have now been catalogued and the records are available on–line through the Church of Ireland website at http://ireland.anglican.org/about/106
Records for all the modern book stock are now available on–line, as are many for the older printed books – those published before 1851.
The staff are now working through the less consulted book stock – items published from 1851. When this task has been completed it is anticipated that some 60,000 records will be available on–line.
The next stage of the project will be to catalogue the Library’s extensive collection of pamphlets and ephemera.
The principal contributors to this cataloguing project are Mary Furlong and Jennifer Murphy (pictured).
