The Lord Howe Island Museum holds a large library collection of books, magazines, journals, films and articles related to the cultural and natural history of the Island.
This Lord Howe Island Board community grant enabled the appointment of a part time researcher to be employed to organise and catalogue these items.
The catalogue software used enables items to be given a number of entries and labels. A search can be made for all items held that relate to a particular place, person, topic or theme. This software is the same as used to catalogue our photographic collection, and will be a valuable asset for residents and researchers to use to locate information about the Island’s natural and cultural history.
