Basic Cataloguing for Non-Cataloguers
This workshop will introduce participants to the principles and practices that form the foundation of cataloguing. This workshop will answer such questions as:
- What is cataloguing?
- What is the purpose of the catalogue?
- How does one ensure that the descriptive record of a library item actually enables users to find what they are looking for?
Through hands-on exercises, participants will learn to apply cataloguing principles to a variety of examples. Participants will also learn how to locate the standards that guide specific aspects of cataloguing.
This workshop complements the workshop Cataloguing with Sirsi.
