Description: This workshop is designed for practicing catalogers from all types of libraries who have a working knowledge of the MARC21 bibliographic format and AACR2. The course is based on the revised chapters 9 and 12 of AACR2 and covers all integrating resources, with an emphasis on remote access electronic integrating resources. The workshop covers the new rules that have been added to these chapters and will provide timely guidance to catalogers who may be responsible for cataloging them. The sessions include an introduction to integrating resources and their identification, instructions for originally cataloging updating Web sites and databases, making changes to existing records, and case studies covering more difficult aspects of cataloging electronic integrating resources.
SCCTP: This workshop is part of the Library of Congress Serials Cataloging Cooperative Training Program (SCCTP), which provides standardized training materials and trained trainers in the field of continuing resources. For further information, see:
