Back to the Future: Cataloger Training Meets the Core Competencies 

Mar 18, 2024 08:37 AM

Presenter: Tonya Dority, Interim Acquisitions and Metadata Librarian, Reese Library, Augusta University

Librarians often have diverse educational backgrounds and experiences. While some remain loyal to a particular career path, others seek to learn new skills. In 2019, I accepted a cataloging staff position at Augusta University’s Reese Library. Having received a library science degree, I was familiar with MARC records, subject analysis, and classification; however, cataloging was not my area of expertise. 

So how do we best prepare librarians who do not have an extensive cataloging background and staff who often assume these responsibilities? This presentation will explore cataloger training at Reese and the benefits of incorporating the Revised Core Competencies.
