You need to find a MARC record for an item your library just purchased and load it into your catalog, but you’re not quite sure how to go about it. This virtual workshop will get you started!

We will cover:

  • Identifying the best way to search for the item
  • Choosing the best MARC record
  • Deciding whether you need to correct, add, or delete any bibliographic information
  • Adding and editing call numbers

We will not be working with live catalog data, but there will be exercises and examples to help us apply what we’re learning, as well as plenty of time for questions. 

Who Should Attend?  

Staff, student workers or volunteers in cataloging, acquisitions, or another part of the library that needs to find and evaluate MARC records to add to a library catalog.
