Series Information:

Fundamentals of Cataloging--our popular, long-running series of in-person training sessions--is now online!  The first set of sessions in the series explains basic cataloging concepts and processes for copy catalogers and demonstrates how to describe our most numerous resource--books! Each session includes dedicated practice and searching time, brief quizzes, and other learning engagement opportunities.


Session Description:

This second session in the Introduction series will focus learning about MARC (MAchine-Readable Cataloging)--what it is, what it looks like, and how it works.  Through this session, attendees will have the opportunity to...

  • recognize the punctuation and symbols used in MARC cataloging

  • learn the basic groups of MARC fields

  • highlight the most important areas of description



  • No cataloging experience is needed to participate in the Introduction series.
