|Some of the varied material we practice catalogued.|
|Rare book from UCL Special Collections.|
|An artists' book at the National Art Library.|
Overall, this term has been the one I have enjoyed the most during my time at UCL. Library and Information Studies at UCL is noted for its focus on cataloguing, and if acquisitions/cataloguing/collection development are areas you are interested in working in, you'll certainly find the module that focuses on it useful. I would also thoroughly recommend the Historical Bibliography module to anyone considering studying at UCL- it's another area which isn't widely taught on LIS/Info studies courses, and it was nice to be studying something that didn't seem as nakedly 'practical' as other modules such as management or collection management (although that's not to say this module wouldn't be an asset if you want to go into Special Collections Librarianship). You can focus on the area of the topic that interests you the most, and you get to look at lots of old, beautiful books in the practical sessions. Ace!
