Cataloging for Non Catalogers (2 Part Series)

Date(s) - 01/08/2020 - 01/17/2020
10:00 am - 2:00 pm




Part 1: Basics of cataloging
The important parts of a book (and a movie) in terms of cataloging, what to look for in a record (is it a match)?, the basic parts of a MARC record, the correlation between the call number and the subject heading, and general guidelines for cataloging.

Part 2: Exercises & Troubleshooting
Tips for searching, and discussions on treatment (is it a book or a serial?); different edition or a reprint, what to do if there is no record? Should you edit an OCLC record? (I can also cover OCLC Connexion or CatExpress basics, too)
