Do you ever need to find a MARC record for an item your library just purchased so you can load it into your catalog, but you’re not quite sure how to go about it? This virtual workshop will get you started! This session is designed for student workers, volunteers, and full-time staff who want to learn the basics of working with MARC records. No prerequisites are required.
The two-hour webinar will begin at 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 8, and will be led by Macalester College cataloger Lizzy Baus. Attendees will be led through exercises and examples to help you apply what you learn, and there will be plenty of time for questions. Topics covered will include:
- Identifying the best way to search for an item
- Choosing the best MARC record
- Deciding whether you need to correct, add, or delete bibliographic information
- Adding and editing call numbers
