Retrospective Conversion of Tweed Museum Collection
To promote the usage of the book collection at the Tweed Museum of Art and to enable online searching, Technical Services started cataloging books in Tweed in June 2007 and completed the retrospective conversion of about 3,023 books by January 2008.
The Tweed Museum Collection includes books on types of art, art history, biographies of artists, museum catalogs, auction catalogs, and books about the subjects represented in artwork.
Now the Tweed holdings appear in the Library Catalog, and books can be used in Tweed but do not circulate. The Tweed Reading-room itself will be rearranged slightly to better show off the collection. We will be adding to the collection regularly as new gifts and purchases arrive.
Thanks, Deb, for the coordination of and major contribution to this worthy project! And my thanks also goes to Marilyn, Brenda, and Pat for their contributions to the completion of the project!
