Fundamentals of Cataloging ONLINE: Overview of Common AV Formats (Session 1)

Series Information:

Fundamentals of Cataloging--our popular, long-running series of in-person training sessions--is now online!  The third set of sessions in the series will focus on the issues, fields, and elements to be considered when cataloging commonly used AV formats including CDs, DVDs, and streaming video and audio files.  This means that we will be discussing records for both physical and electronic resources.  Each session includes dedicated practice and searching time, brief quizzes, and other learning engagement opportunities.


Session Description:

This first session in the Common AV Formats series will present an overview of AV Cataloging processes and workflows.  We will discuss the vocabulary and resources you need to help you get started with cataloging common audiovisual materials.  Through this session, attendees will have the opportunity to...

  • learn key vocabulary for audiovisual cataloging

  • identify common types of audiovisual materials
