CONSER’s Advanced Serials Cataloging Workshop

Nylink LogoMay 12 & May 13, 2009 Nylink Offices, Albany

An in-depth course on the rules and practices applied to original cataloging of serials. While the course focuses on printed serials, the instructions are applicable to serials in any format.

Course topics include:

  • What is a serial in the revised scope of AACR2 and how do serials compare to monographs and integrating resources
  • An area-by-area approach to the cataloging of serials, including some of the more complex aspects: uniform titles, links, designations, and title transcription
  • Cataloging of special kinds of serials: supplements, cumulations, reprints, microform reproductions, and conference publications
  • Major and minor changes, particularly what constitutes a major title change in the revised rules
  • Discussion of how serial records are used in libraries and displayed in library OPACs
