ALCTS webinar: Using LibGuides in Technical Services

Date: Wednesday, April 15, 2015

All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.

Description: Technical services departments in academic libraries have struggled to communicate effectively with other library departments, particularly public services departments. As academic libraries acquire large numbers of digital resources, technical services departments are increasingly responsible for providing current information about those resources to public services staff. In this webinar, the presenter will discuss the process of creating, testing, and implementing a LibGuide as a way of communicating much-needed information between technical services and public services staff at Miami University Libraries.

Learning outcomes: Upon completion of this session, attendees will have learned how to efficiently utilize external sources (e.g., RSS feeds, Google forms and docs, widgets) within a LibGuide. Attendees will also learn the value of a LibGuide for technical services work and intra-library communications.

Who should attend? Technical services department staff and managers, including acquisitions, cataloging, serials, or e-resources staff; collection management staff

Presenter: Jennifer Bazeley has a BM and an MM in viola performance from the Eastman School of Music, and an MLIS from Dominican University in Illinois. She has worked in technical services at the library in the Field Museum in Chicago, the Mason Public Library in Ohio, and the library at the Cincinnati Art Museum. She began working in the Miami University Library in Oxford, OH in 2009, and is currently Interim Head of Technical Services.

ALCTS Web Course: Fundamentals of Cataloging -- SOLD OUT

Session 2: April 27 - June 5, 2015

Six-week online course that is a basic primer for library cataloging concepts and practices.The course was written and developed by Vicki Sipe, Catalog Librarian, University of Maryland, Baltimore County. It covers:

  • principles underlying cataloging practice,

  • examples illustrating the principles in practice,

  • tools used in cataloging practice such as AACR2, RDA, Library of Congress Subject Headings, Library of Congress Classification, MARC, OCLC, BIBFRAME, and

  • processes used by catalogers in creating bibliographic records.

Fundamentals of Cataloging (FOC) begins with a discussion of how cataloging assists users in finding resources and of the value of standardization of practice. These foundations are then given practical grounding in the work of creating bibliographic descriptions, the process of subject analysis, and summarizing content utilizing classification. Standards such as MARC bibliographic and authority formats, Library of Congress Subject Headings and Library of Congress Classification are discussed. The shift in focus from format-based cataloging to entity-relationship model cataloging is taken from the FRBR foundation to the RDA practical application, with a final look at RDF triples and BIBFRAME. In all areas, the value of standards is illustrated and discussed. There is a heavy reliance on examples from actual practice throughout the course content.

Who Should Attend?

As a fundamentals course, FOC is tailored for librarians and library support staff new to cataloging, librarians and library support staff from other units who want to know more about cataloging, and experienced cataloging librarians and library support staff seeking continuing education and networking opportunities.

Cataloging librarians in countries other than the U.S. and library school students or graduates developing skills to help get a job or identify areas of interest in library work may also benefit from this course.
