Cataloging Sound Recordings in AACR2 (Online Version)

This workshop teaches participants how to catalog sound recordings (CDs, MP3s and cassettes, both musical and nonmusical), using such tools as AACR2, Library of Congress Rule Interpretations and Library of Congress Subject Cataloging Manual: Subject Headings. The class will address both copy cataloging and original cataloging, all in the MARC format. The instruction will cover issues like the chief source of information, general material designation, physical description, main entry, choice of additional access points, and assignment of subject headings. In addition, participants will learn the MARC fixed and variable fields for sound recordings, and will study the relationships among these fields. The booklet for this workshop contains AACR2 rules combined with the relevant Library of Congress rule interpretations and MARC coding information. In addition, we will use the online version of Bibliographic Formats and Standards. We will also peek ahead to the new set of cataloging rules: RDA.

PLEASE NOTE: Cataloging using the RDA Toolkit will NOT be covered in this workshop. To register to attend the Copy Cataloging of Sound Recordings Using RDA, go to: Copy Cataloging of Sound Recordings . To register to attend the Original Cataloging of Sound Recordings Using RDA, go to: Original Cataloging of Sound Recordings .

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 (March 27, 28, and 29, 2013) using our online workshop software. All registered attendees will receive additional login information a few days prior to the 1st class date.
