Fundamentals of Cataloging ONLINE: Subject Analysis Suggested Workflows (Session 3)
December 10, 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Fundamentals of Cataloging–our popular, long-running series of in-person training sessions–is now online! The fourth set of sessions in the series will focus on the skills and knowledge necessary to understand and assess existing subject headings in MARC format. Please note that this series is aimed at folks primarily practicing copy cataloging. Each session includes dedicated practice time, brief quizzes, and other learning engagement opportunities.
This last session in the Subject Analysis for Copy Catalogers series focuses on the steps needed to confirm the validity and appropriateness of assigned subject headings. We will also explore how and when to make changes that make sense for your collection and users. Through this session, attendees will have the opportunity to…
check the validity of assigned subject headings when copy cataloging
discuss cataloger’s judgment and etiquette in shared catalogs
explore types of changes and corrections that are more commonly required
