Map Cataloging Webinar
December 11, 2019
In this 2 hour session, we’ll cover the basics of map cataloging, from what information to record to the basics of constructing a call number. This class focuses on practical tips and analysis of MARC and to non-MARC metadata records. Through exploration of examples, attendees will gain practical exposure to the fundamentals of RDA map cataloging and insights into LCSH subject analysis for map cataloging. Upon completion of the class and exercises, attendees should be able to identify appropriate elements for recording in a map record, which they will be apply to their specific metadata framework (MARC, DublinCore, etc.) No map cataloging experience is necessary but familiarity with MARC may be useful.
Resources: Curated map cataloging resources, presentation materials, and exercises will be available after class.
Audience: All library staff who work with or are interested in map cataloging in general, in their ILS/OCLC, institutional repository, or digital archives, as well as those who are interested in the role of metadata in systems
