Installing Library Systems and Cataloguing

I have skill as a cataloguer with copy cataloguing and library automation as I am a system librarian.

I consult onsite re library design and setup and can re-order a library to be better grouped so that research can be done much easier. This is a result of cataloguing the entire collection including books, serials, CD, DVDs, cassettes, LPs, audio tapes, photograph albums, paintings, letters and memorabilia.

I partially installed opensource library system software Koha on a Debian Linux server for my own small library. Greenstone on Windows is another digital library manager tool I have installed.

Community Library Project

In January and November 2011 and June 2012, I installed and setup cataloguing procedures for a Web/PC library using Collectorz, CueCat barcode scanner, iphone barcode readers and mobile catalogues for a small Christian library in Canberra. I then catalogued and sorted the 1500 books. This catalogue was online but it expired and collection went into storage.

Private Library for Sale

In July 2012, I catalogued 300 books for person in Orange to sell online. Most were archaeology, ancient history and mineralogy.

Mt Margaret Mission Publication Project

Started in 2008, this is a large indexing and publishing project for my father S Preston Walker's last book 'Enriching Australia through educating indigenous people'.

I used ResourceMate as follows to catalogue my father's library to finish research on his book.

ResourceMate Software

In April-October 2011, I catalogued a personal library of 3500 items in Brisbane onsite using ResourceMate on a Windows laptop with Vodafone 3G wifi using the Internet for copy cataloguing.

In 2019, I plan to use WebOPAC of Resourcemate. This is hosted library software.

My IT skills: I have used RDP client on Linux and Windows to access such hosted software. I have used RDP client rdesktop on Linux EEEPC to login to Windows Server 2008 the same as in the following video re tablet access to software. On Windows I use Remote Desktop Connection (RDP) to access software.

Searchable Book Indexes

Part of my consulting is indexing books and PDF files as in the Mt Margaret Mission research.

In 2010, I also setup a searchable book index database at indexdata.info. The indexes can be downloaded as PDFs.

From 2011-2017, we were Webmaster and Web Indexing Award Judge of Digital Publications Indexing SIG of American Society for Indexing.
