About the Event
This course provides the basic principles of serials cataloging for original and copy cataloging for print and electronic serials. The course focuses on the elements contained in the CONSER core record, including appropriate MARC 21 tagging, as well as problem-solving and decision-making relative to serials cataloging. All materials are based on the CONSER Editing Guide and CONSER Cataloging Manual. All Serials Cataloging Cooperative Training Program (SCCTP) http://www.loc.gov/acq/conser/scctp/ workshops consist of slide presentations with exercises on paper. Trainees will not be using a computer as part of the workshop.
The course is designed for those new to serials: beginning serials catalogers and technicians and monograph catalogers working with serials.
