Quick and Clean Catalogers
Meet the People Involved
Adam began working on the cataloging project in 2006 as a GSLIS student. He is the founding editor of the Non Solus Blog, a collaborative blog which showcases new discoveries made in the course of cataloging. He enjoys researching the provenances of items he encounters on the project and bringing together previously dispersed collections.
Linda taught both the beginning and advanced cataloging courses at the UIUC GSLIS for fifteen years, having previously worked as a cataloger for both academic and public libraries. Now retired, her work on the cataloging project has brought her full circle, back to the RBML where she did a one-year practicum when she was a GSLIS student herself.
Rosemary graduated from GSLIS in December 2011 and has been working at the RMBL since August 2011. She also has a Ph.D. in Art History; her dissertation was on images and text of the Hypnerotomachia Poliphili. With her knowledge of Italian language, history and culture, she has particularly enjoyed working with RBML’s incunables and the Cavagna Collection.
Chloe Ottenhoff has a background in the humanities and has earned degrees in art history and library science. Chloe has been working as a project cataloger since August 2011.
