Resources discussed will be those born digital such as websites, pdfs and others. Tips on searching for records in OCLC, copy cataloging, choosing the right format and cataloging policy issues are also covered.
Cataloging staff/copy catalogers, cataloging supervisors who train, acquisitions staff who need to understand basic cataloging information related to ebooks, staff at small libraries who primarily copy catalog materials; all staff who need to understand bibliographic information related to electronic resources.
