Professional Summary
My approach towards cataloguing relies on the belief that a resource can only truly be available to users if it is readily and easily findable. For this to be the case, the cataloguer must do his or her job not just thoroughly and with great accuracy and consistency, but also with flexibility and creativity. A cataloguer positions resources so that they become findable and retrievable.
