This basic introduction to cataloging covers four elements: content (AACR2), communication (MARC), classification (DDC/LCC), and presentation (the catalog).The workshop will be a mix of presentation 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 does. This program is appropriate for anyone looking to refresh or acquire basic cataloging skills.
