Cataloging & Organization of Library Materials for Better Access

It is with great pleasure that I can now announce that everything has come together for DOL’s 5-day cataloging workshop for directors and staff of public libraries.

Cataloging & Organization of Library Materials for Better Access

A five-day, concentrated, practical workshop for beginners and for public librarians who are cataloging but have had little or no formal training. The DEWEY DECIMAL CLASSIFICATION and the LIBRARY OF CONGRESS SUBJECT HEADINGS will be the basic working tools. MARC cataloging and computerized cataloging services will be covered. Because this type of workshop requires a great deal of individualized instruction, participation in each session will be limited to 16 people.
