This session invites PUL cataloguers and scholars in the humanities to consider ways in which cataloguing practices inform print historical research. Variations in cataloguing standards across institutions and over time, as well as changing assumptions about the scope and applications of cataloguing data, raise questions for archival researchers. Their evolving tools for and approaches to the study of materials in library collections pose new directions for cataloguers, in kind. This workshop aims to open avenues for feedback between scholars and producers of bibliographic data through a collaborative look at sample cataloguing outcomes.
