Thanks, these lists are perfect.

I'd always sorta realized that being a librarian was a pretty specialized field of endeavor, worthy of more respect and far better pay than they usually get. (Librarians in the US typically earn somewhere around minimum wage.)  However, being asked to put together a library from scratch is a huge task, the enormity of which one only realizes once begun.
