Have you found yourself responsible for cataloging with no previous experience? Is "cataloger" yet another cap to be added to your collection of the many hats you wear at your library?
Continuing Education Services
Need a "boot camp" to get started with cataloging? This course is designed to give you the practical, hands-on information needed to succeed in cataloging and prepares participants to begin copy cataloging by demonstrating how to interpret bibliographic records and match to items in hand. Examples and exercises will be based on OCLC-MARC, accessed through the Connexion cataloging interface.
In addition to introducing you the key concepts and tools necessary in reference and information services, this course is also designed to encourage you to update your reference source materials and to provide you with opportunities to interact with and learn from colleagues from a variety of libraries across the country.
