SCCTP Advanced Serials Cataloging
Friday, January 20, 2006 in San Antonio, TX
The Advanced Serials Cataloging Workshop is an in-depth course on cataloging practices applied to original cataloging of serials according to CONSER guidelines. While the course focuses on printed serials, the instructions are applicable to serials in any format. The workshop consists of an area-by-area approach to the cataloging of serials, concentrating on aspects particular to serials such as serial title transcription, uniform titles in serial records, designations, and linking fields.
The course is designed for people who have at least taken the Basic Serials Cataloging Workshop or who have been catalogers for more than one year and are familiar with MARC tagging and fundamental concepts of cataloging. While attendees who do not have this background in may find parts of the workshop useful, the instructors will not have sufficient time to review basic cataloging concepts or MARC record structure, etc.
