Cataloging & Classification Basics

Offering an in-depth look at MARC fields and subfields used for cataloging, it prepares participants to begin copy cataloging by demonstrating how to interpret bibliographic records and match to items in hand.

We will cover MARC bibliographic, classification and categorization schemas, basic copy cataloging, and other areas essential to the cataloging department.Topics include terminology, resources, and workflow. Hands-on exercises provide practice using new skills. Examples and exercises will be based on OCLC-MARC, accessed through the Connexion cataloging interface.
