In-person cataloging workshops offer hands-on practice and one-on-one attention
Our longest-running training track, Fundamentals of Cataloging, will feature two in-person workshops in the next few months. We’re happy to host you in one of our recently re-designed meeting spaces, featuring easily moveable furniture for group work and with plenty of room and equipment to support laptops, tablets and more. If you think you’d benefit from hands-on, face-to-face time with our workshop leader for these events, Misty Alvaro from Upper Arlington Public Library, plan to sign-up for these in-person, day-long workshops.

Fundamentals of Cataloging: Introduction to Original Cataloging Workshop
Got local or unique items in need of catalog records? Join us to learn the skills needed to create MARC records from scratch. Attendees to this workshop MUST have copy-cataloging experience or have taken the Introduction and Basic Description workshop or webinars.
Tuesday, August 20, 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM (with an hour-long break for lunch on your own)
Fundamentals of Cataloging: Subject Analysis for Copy Catalogers
Subject analysis—or determining the about-ness of an item—is a critical area for library staff members to understand. Subject analysis allows us to collocate related items and helps us foster serendipitous discoveries for our community members. If you work with managing cataloging records, this workshop will walk you through the steps needed to understand, assess and edit existing subject records.
Tuesday, November 12, 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM (with an hour-long break for lunch on your own)
