Good cataloging doesn't just happen. It takes special skills to make MARC records that will work well in each and every MARC-based library automation system out there. This workshop will introduce you to the core skills of good cataloging and MARC. Once you learn these skills and how to find your way around the basic cataloging tools--the Anglo American Cataloguing Rules (AACR2R), Library of Congress Rule Interpretations (LCRI) and the MARC coding standards (MARC21)--you will be able to apply them to catalog all of the various types of materials that you collect in your library, quickly and efficiently. Whether you are copy cataloging or making original records, this workshop will teach you the essential cataloging rules and MARC standards that you need to know. In no time, you'll see a radical improvement in your record.
