The University of Kent holds multiple Special Collections, of which rare and special book cataloguing standards have historically been inconsistent. In order to improve the profile of these collections, a review was undertaken to improve these procedures. This decision coincided with the University of Kent collaborating on a unique and exciting cataloguing project with Rochester Cathedral. This poster showcases the outcomes of this collaborative project between Rochester Cathedral Library and the University of Kent, and the subsequent policy developed to catalogue rare books to an enhanced RDA/DCRM(b) hybrid. This was an innovative and essential step towards developing an otherwise non-existent cataloguing standard for rare book materials, which is still under development in the rare books community.
