An introduction.

This isn’t really about me. I’m a half-cataloger half-processing archivist (which is basically the worst mythological creature ever) at Milner Library, Illinois State University. I’m a very boring person.

What is interesting to me though, is that for my job I use some pretty different different standards and platforms to describe archives and cataloged items. And when you start playing around with both of those at the same time, things can get interesting. So this is where I try to talk about cataloging to archivists, and archival practice to catalogers.

Hopefully it makes sense more often than not.
