Moving to Walter Bower House: Metadata on the move
The University Libraries’ metadata team recently completed the move out of town to a new base at Walter Bower House on Eden Campus. This has meant some big changes for cataloguers and book processors.
These are just some of the many crates we packed up to move out of our old office space in level 1 of the Main Library.
We’ve got a new workroom and a new graduate trainee, Jake Smithson. He’s cataloguing the Walford Collection and will also work on its archives for Special Collections.
Fruit trees are planted in the grounds of Walter Bower House – we were able to pick the plums recently.
It’s a short walk from the campus to the medieval Guard Bridge. It was in use for traffic until 1938.
Despite these changes, there is one constant always in the metadata world – cakes! And of course we’ll also be continuing to make the University Libraries’ resources discoverable and available to read, whether that’s in print or as an ebook, ejournal or ethesis.
