Cataloguers in Wales, in association with WHELF (Wales Higher Education Libraries Forum), have organised a training day for cataloguing artists’ books, to be held in Cardiff on Monday 12th February.
The morning session will include an introduction to artists’ books led by Sarah Bodman of the University of the West of England, Bristol; plus presentations on collections held at Cardiff Metropolitan University and Cardiff University – what they include, and how they are utilised by library users. The afternoon session will be led by Maria White (co-author of “Artists’ books: a cataloguers manual” ARLIS guide) and will introduce attendees to the practical aspects of cataloguing artists’ books.
Primarily aimed at WHELF cataloguers, we do have a small number of spare places available to the wider cataloguing community.
As places are limited they will be allocated on a ‘first come, first served’ basis. Please contact Karen Pierce by email: PierceKF@Cardiff.ac.uk to make a booking and to receive further details. This is a free training event and lunch will be included.
Date: February 12, 2018
Venue: Special Collections, Cardiff University, Cardiff
