If you are, would you like to help us collect information about them?
At Sheffield Hallam University we are storing information about the books in our catalogue. The wealth of data collected includes genre, subject, plot summaries, and details of books, writers and artists mentioned within the novels. We are calling this ‘enhanced cataloguing’. This will form a unique resource of information about these books, many of which are very little known.
How to contribute
You can contribute to the data held on the collection catalogue by completing this form. In order to do this we suggest you look at a sample completed form first. You will need the list of genre and subject terms in order to complete those sections of the form. To complete the ‘literary and cultural references’ section we find it is necessary to take notes as you go along! The form also contains an optional ‘book review’ section: we’d love to hear what you think of the novel. If you fill in this section your review may be posted on this blog.
You will receive email confirmation when your catalogue form is received. Please note that in submitting material to the Special Collection you also agree to your contribution being used for educational and research purposes. If you have any queries or feedback on the process please email Erica Brown firstname.lastname@example.org.
