Dedicated with love
19 July 2011
This post is about a small cataloguing convention called an institution specific note. A special note that we sometimes put on catalogue records that only relates to the copy we have in our collection (and not to any other libraries that might also have a copy of this title). A few months ago now when I was at the Canberra Zine Fair we acquired a copy of this gorgeous zine called "First world youth cultures to be addressed : Mumbai sapphire edition" by Nicholas Burns and Sam Bears. We had quite a lovely chat with the two creators as they decorated our copy – one of the adornments was a small NLA and a heart… my very generous supervisor agreed to allow me to record this in the record! Below is a screen shot of my record in progress. And this is a link to the record so you can see the end product!
‘N copy signed by creators and dedicated to the National Library of Australia with love.’ Very special!
