Title
Hidden wisdom and unseen treasure : revisiting cataloging in Medieval libraries

Abstract
Scholars working in the field of mediaeval history and cultural history have recognized that understanding the cataloguing and accessioning of books is central to understanding the transmission of ideas. Unfortunately, general histories of libraries and even the library literature seem content to sketch out a chronological development of cataloguing in line with the 19th and 20th century view of library development, from a simple list to complex intellectual systems. In truth, however, those individuals responsible for cataloguing books in mediaeval libraries faced many of the same challenges as cataloguers today: how to organize information; how to serve local needs; and how to provide access to individual works within larger bibliographic formats. Summarizes recent scholarship in the history of the book that relates to library cataloguing, as well as providing parallels to the cooperative library environment of today
