Basic Cataloging and Classification (Infopeople)
Through practical information and hands-on exercises, you will gain an understanding of cataloging practices, rules, and tools, as well as the nuts and bolts of copy cataloging. The course will cover Resource Description and Access (RDA), the current cataloging rule, the Library of Congress genre/form headings project, and Book Industry Standards and Communications (BISAC) subject headings. MARC format and Dewey Decimal Classification system will be discussed as well. Tips on copy cataloging of newly emerging formats, such as e-books, graphic novels, and downloadable media will be offered.
At the end of four weeks you will feel comfortable with the basics of cataloging, classification, and MARC records and be ready to begin copy cataloging items in a variety of formats.
