Duluth Public Library - Duluth, MN.

Duluth Public Library - Duluth, MN.

The Minitex Digital Initiatives & Metadata Education (DIME) unit provides continuing education opportunities and support in the areas of cataloging and metadata, technical services workflow, and OCLC products and services. In addition, the Minitex Contract Cataloging Program can assist with eliminating backlogs, ongoing cataloging, and specialized language and format cataloging.

Through our training, communications, and the resources on this site, we strive to strengthen the knowledge, skills, and efficiency of technical services staff in libraries throughout the Minitex region. New resources are available on a wide range of topics like RDA, BIBFRAME, and linked data.
