Introduction to Cataloguing

Date: Friday April 7th

Time: 10:00 – 16:00

CILIP South West Members Network (SWMN) & CILIP Cataloguing and Indexing Group (CIG) invite you to oneBooks day training on cataloguing.
This training is aimed at people who know nothing about cataloguing (or who have forgotten everything they once knew long ago). In a range of activities, you will find out what cataloguing is and why we do it; have a go at doing some basic cataloguing using the current international standard (RDA) and exchange format (MARC21); and leave with some resources you can use to keep up-to-date with your newly-gained cataloguing knowledge.

The trainers are from CILIP’s Cataloguing and Indexing Group. Anne Welsh is Lecturer in Library and Information Studies at University College London, where she teaches the core module in Cataloguing and optional modules in Advanced Cataloguing and in Historical Bibliography. Her co-authored book Practical Cataloguing (Facet, 2012) is a set text at iSchools nationally and internationally, and her second book, Cataloguing and Decision-Making in a Hybrid Environment is due out from Facet later this year.

Katharine Whaite is currently completing her PhD studies in cataloguing history at University College London, where she has led classes in cataloguing and classification. She has previously worked at BPP University Library (Holborn), and Gray’s Inn Library, where she has also provided legal information training. She has published articles in Catalogue & Index and Information Research.

The CILIP Cataloguing & Indexing Group (CIG) is pleased to announce a repeat of the successful RDA in a Day training course.

RDA in a Day is a practical introduction to cataloguing with RDA: Resource Description and Access. Led by two RDA specialists from the British Library, the course will cover the FRBR model and RDA terminology. This is an interactive, hands-on course in which trainees will learn by using RIMMF and the RDA Toolkit to create RDA records. The day also covers creation of RDA records in MARC 21. Prior cataloguing experience and knowledge of AACR2 and MARC 21 will be an advantage. Places are limited to maintain an excellent trainer/trainee ration so that you get the most out of your day.
