Katalogisieren mehr was für die Stillen

"Some go in for cataloguing as a speciality; this is suited to the quiet, shy women, who, though fully qualified for the work, prefer to do that part of it which may be accomplished away from public view. Others, who do not shine in cataloguing, are well fitted to meet amd aid those who come to consult the books under their charge. Some combine both qualities, and are fitted to take control of a library".
