Beginning Cataloguing Conference badge at SLA Europe 2019

Beginning Cataloguing began life in 2019 as a Twitter account maintained by Anne Welsh when her personal account took on a wider focus than might be of interest to library cataloguers. It quickly became clear that it would be a good name for the pro bono consultancy work she had been undertaking, helping writers and artists to prepare their archives and personal libraries for donation to cultural institutions, and to grow this part of her practice into a fully-fledged business.

We still undertake some pro bono work each year. Indeed, some associates only provide conference services, while others will accept paid freelance offers. Click through to see information on individuals:
