CHICAGOCore is hosting the webinar “Cataloging for Accessibility” on January 11, 2023, at 1 p.m. CT. This webinar, presented by a highly experienced metadata professional, will introduce accessibility metadata, explaining what it is, where it’s found and why it’s important. The presentation will then focus on how to include accessibility metadata in library catalog records, discussing specific MARC fields and options for their use in discovery layers to make accessible resources more easily findable. Alongside that, attendees will also learn search strategies for finding accessible resources in a library catalog.
