Sept: Cataloging for the Non-Cataloger (Library Juice Academy)

Dates: September 9 through October 5, 2013
Credits: 1.5 CEUs
Price: $175

Are you a librarian who has suddenly been given the responsibility of cataloging for your library, but you know little to nothing about how to do it? Or do you feel that a quick course on cataloging will simply make you a better librarian? This four-week course will introduce the tools of the trade, including descriptive cataloging (AACR2 and RDA), subject cataloging (classification and subject headings), and an introduction to Machine Readable Cataloging (MARC). The course promises to provide practical, hands-on training for non-catalogers, including short-cuts and sample workflows and guides to make the job of cataloging easier. Upon completion, you may want to follow this course with the subsequently offered courses on FRBR and RDA.
