...it is fascinating to be working in the wonderful Lindley Library

As Orchid Paintings Cataloguer, I have recently catalogued the RHS’s amazing collection of more than 7000 Orchid Award Paintings. These will eventually be made accessible online on the RHS website, so that many more people will be able to view this unique collection. 

Having spent many years in museum collections management, both in small museums and national collections, but having also worked in a specialist library, it is fascinating to be working in the wonderful Lindley Library, which combines both!
