I'd be up for joining in.
I'd imagine there's a lot of legwork necessary up front, though -- finding a candidate library, talking it through with the custodians, arranging for computers to use (or at least power and network access for those who can bring laptops), etc. And I'm not particularly up for that.
Ooh. Feminist Library sounds good. How do we get in touch with them though?
There are some library reserves in London - reserve bookcases at Hammersmith Library, children's fiction reserve (gorgeous old stuff) at Stoke Newington Library, and I think there's some kind of reserve in Wandsworth too. Westminster libraries seem to be fairly up to date (though not sure because I'm not a member there).
So, would any London-based LTers be interested in heading out to Chislehurst, near Bromley, to have a crack at cataloguing these? (At least the ones with titles that use the Roman alphabet, that is.) I believe it won't be long before the collection is dispersed by his relatives.
As a side note, I'm not sure whether Hobson would satisfy the criteria for a Legacy Library. Any thoughts?
Are you familiar with Hobson's work? It looks like his author page could do with splitting, assuming he isn't the guy writing about autism and such like.
Might be worth dropping Jeremy a line re suitability as an LL (I don't see why not though).
Good work! Is it me, or is it a rule that any anglophone name on LT common enough to need spitting at least a few ways has to contain an author of Christian works of some level of esotericism?
>14 mart1n: mart1n, great to hear that you live so near. I'm sure we could sort you out with a laptop for the purpose. (I actually have a CueCat, but somehow I don't think it would be a great help with this particular collection…)
I'll hold back on asking Jeremy the Legacy Library question until I have a better idea about whether this is going to happen. So, any other LondonThingers?
