Serving Non-English Speaking and Pre-literate Children: How Cataloging Can Help

Sunday, June 27, 1:30–3:30pm

Learn how the “code” of cataloging makes searching predictable and consistent, how to provide consistent access to foreign language titles and the importance of uniform titles. Be introduced to subject heading thesauri in different languages and how various Dewey translations can provide broad, local subject headings. See how visual catalog or “Kids’ catalog” assists non-English and pre-literate library users, and look at the role of the bibliographic record.
