What does the Honorary Librarian do?

The Society's small library holds a number of books and records of historical interest. The most valuable are in the care of the London Metropolitan Archives. The general collection is housed at St Martin in the Fields and Spitalfields. The Librarian keeps the library catalogue up to date, controls access, and deals with correspondence and enquiries about the library. The Librarian is also responsible for maintaining the inventory of the Society's assets, and providing general assistance to the Trustees.
