This is a basic introduction to cataloging, covering four elements: content (AACR2), communication (MARC), classification (subject headings, call numbers), and presentation (the catalog). The workshop will be a mix of presentations and hands-on exercises, with a focus on monographic cataloging. Participants will learn to be more comfortable in the cataloging environment. Those who are not catalogers will learn how their catalogs work and why the catalog works the way it doe. This program is appropriate for anyone looking to refresh or acquire basic cataloging skills.
