Authorities (Online Workshop)

This workshop will teach participants guidelines for selection of authority records, content and interpretation of authority records, and an explanation of each field, subfield, and data element in the authority record. Goals for this workshop are for participants to be able to establish correct access points for cataloging and to interpret the content and coding of authority records during this process.

Additionally, participants will learn how to create corporate and personal name headings with appropriate cross references, explanatory references, and source data information.

This workshop is eligible for six (6) general library education units (LEUs).

This class will be online for 3 - 2 hr sessions over 3 consecutive days using our online workshop software. You will receive additional instructions on how to attend this session after registering for this class.
