Series Description:

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.

  • explore the variety of subject heading systems

  • discuss cataloger's judgment and bias

  • learn about MARC21 coding for subject headings in bibliographic records and Library of Congress Subject Headings
