Library Technical Services: Training for Library Staff
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!
