Ms Lucille Munoz

Lucille Munoz, BA (Strasbourg), MA (Lyon); HLF Project Associate (Rare Books Cataloguer). 

I hold a two-year fixed post as the Project Associate (Rare Books Cataloguer) for the Old Library's Heritage Lottery Funded cataloguing and outreach project entitled: ‘Renaissance Queens’: Discovering Cambridge’s unique Tudor past in the Old Library of Queens’ College Cambridge’. My main responsibility is to begin the process of cataloguing the Library’s sixteenth-century books online. In addition to recording authors and titles I am describing and indexing unique copy-specific features such as bindings, inscriptions, annotations and other provenance information.

As part of the Renaissance Queens' project I also promote the Old Library and its collections to Queens’ College members and to the wider community via our project website (, exhibitions as well as schools outreach and other public events. Through the project, we seek to bring to light a uniquely Cambridge perspective on the cosmopolitan world of Renaissance learning and Tudor politics.


For my master’s degree in book history and librarianship, I wrote a dissertation on the literature of Jonathan Swift and the copies of his works held by Lyon public library. My second dissertation focused on the eighteenth-century Dutch writer, Justus Van Effen. As a rare books cataloguer, I am particularly interested in provenance and more generally in copy-specific information that makes a library’s copy unique.
