 Registration is closed for this event


Fundamentals of Cataloging--our long-running series of training sessions--is returning to a popular and complex topic—serials cataloging!  This set of online sessions will focus on the issues, fields, and elements to be considered when cataloging periodicals.  Please note that we will cover both physical and electronic serials records.  Each session includes dedicated practice and searching time, brief quizzes, and other learning engagement opportunities.

This first session in the Serials series will give an overview to serials cataloging.  We will describe the vocabulary and resources you need to get started.  Through this session, attendees will have the opportunity to...

  • learn key vocabulary for continuing resource cataloging
  • understand the major differences between monograph and continuing resource cataloging
  • explore free resources and tools for cataloging serials
  • utilize examples of national standards to simplify serial cataloging
