ALCTS Web Course: Fundamentals of Cataloging

Session 1: January 8 - February 16, 2018

Six-week online course that is a basic primer for library cataloging
concepts and practices. It covers:


   principles underlying cataloging practice,

   examples illustrating the principles in practice,

   tools used in cataloging practice such as AACR2, RDA, Library of
   Congress Subject Headings, Library of Congress Classification, MARC, OCLC,
   BIBFRAME, and

   processes used by catalogers in creating bibliographic records.

Fundamentals of Cataloging (FOC) begins with a discussion of how cataloging
assists users in finding resources and of the value of standardization of
practice. These foundations are then given practical grounding in the work
of creating bibliographic descriptions, the process of subject analysis,
and summarizing content utilizing classification. Standards such as MARC
bibliographic and authority formats, Library of Congress Subject Headings
and Library of Congress Classification are discussed. The shift in focus
from format-based cataloging to entity-relationship model cataloging is
taken from the FRBR foundation to the RDA practical application, with a
final look at RDF triples and BIBFRAME. In all areas, the value of
standards is illustrated and discussed. There is a heavy reliance on
examples from actual practice throughout the course content.
