FSCJ libraries use the Library of Congress (LC) classification system to classify and arrange materials. Their subject specific classification allows for items on the same subject to be arranged near each other on the shelves. This helps library materials find information on a topic relatively easy and quickly as the items are next to one another.
(Library of Congress) - ClassWeb is an integrated cataloging tool that assists with the assignment of Library of Congress classification numbers for bibliographic content. ClassWeb is accessed over the Internet using a standard Web browser and is kept up-to-date with the latest LC classification and authority data. In addition to extensive cross referencing thoughout the system, there are links to external library OPACs. You can configure your ClassWeb account to select from a list of pre-defined OPACs as well as set up a custom link to an OPAC that is not already in the list.
No matter where you work in the library, knowledge of basic cataloging will enhance and improve your skills.
This online training will offer a basic orientation to cataloging – its purpose, its goals, its terminology – including what information is most important, the original cataloging process, copy cataloging, and MARC –the framework used to code the information (yes, catalogers CODE!).
A great start for the beginning cataloger as well as an introduction for the non-cataloging staff, manager, and administrator.
This webinar will provide a crash course in the process of submitting LCSH proposals as well as introduce the Cataloging Lab, a wiki where anyone can collaborate to suggest headings additions or revisions. Anyone who is interested in making our shared vocabulary more responsive to users’ needs is welcome!
