What’s Missing from the Catalog? Why Copy Cataloging is Still Needed

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will consider the issues raised in the article "The Best Cataloger is a Frustrated Library User: Cataloging Failure and the Underutilization of Library Resources" in the Oct. 2015 issue of Theological Librarianship. Attendees are encouraged to read this article before the workshop. Some questions to be addressed include: Is copy cataloging still necessary? What is the impact of "shelf ready cataloging" on library users? What is the impact of importing large sets of bibliographic records for ebooks into our catalogs? This session will raise these and other questions concerning the role of cataloging in environment that increasingly favors outsourcing and minimal intervention. It should be of interest not only to catalogers but also to those who work in reference and in library administration. https://theolib.atla.com/theolib/article/view/401/1318
