(not our library shelves)

After twenty years of knowing it needed to me done, and about 3 months of doing, and about 2 days of intensive time dedicated to it, we have completed the first pass at indexing, shelving and sorting the SCGO Science Library.

These are 1007 (at the moment) books ranging in all sciences and age that are mostly about astronomy and space, with a few others thrown in just to make it a bit eclectic.
The next step is to make another pass to ensue the alphabetization is as good as it will get, while also removing duplicates.

Removing dupes will be harder than it seems… do you keep the first edition or the 2nd edition? Do you keep the softcover or the hardcover? What if you have 6 copies (1st ed, 2nd ed, etc) ?
We will see.
