  • Cataloging and Classification Basics Course
    If you are looking for a "boot camp" to get started in cataloging, look no further than our Cataloging and Classification Basics Course. This twelve-hour course is designed to give you the practical, hands-on information needed to succeed in cataloging. We will cover MARC bibliographic, classification and categorization schemas, basic copy cataloging, and other areas essential to the cataloging department. This course offers an in-depth look at MARC fields (fixed and variable) and subfields used for cataloging. It prepares participants to begin copy cataloging by demonstrating how to interpret bibliographic records and match to items in hand. Topics include terminology, resources, and workflow. Hands-on exercises (at least one per day) provide practice using new skills. Examples and exercises will be based on OCLC-MARC, accessed through the Connexion cataloging interface.
