E-Book Cataloging Using a Shared Mailbox

ALCTS webinar: E-Book Cataloging Using a Shared Mailbox

This webinar is one of the six-part “Working with Continuing Resources” webinar series

Date: Monday, March 16, 2015
All webinars are one hour in length and begin at 11am Pacific, noon Mountain, 1pm Central, and 2pm Eastern time.

Description: Acquiring and cataloging e-books received as firm orders presents a unique challenge to librarians accustomed to print materials, who struggle to manage an invisible backlog and workflow, and the attendant difficulties with tracking, communicating between departments, and notifying users when the materials are available to them. This session will show participants how to plan and create a workflow for processing these orders using a shared mailbox.

Learning outcomes: Participants will be able to plan and create a workflow applicable to their own environment.

Who should attend? Technical services librarians who are responsible for the management of an e-book workflow, whether in acquisitions or cataloging.

Presenter: Nancy Mitchell Poehlmann has been a cataloging manager since 1990. She has presented sessions on various cataloging and management topics at the American Library Association Midwinter and Annual conferences, the SUNY Librarians Association conference, and the Association of American Law Libraries annual conference. She is currently Head of the Cataloging Services Department at the University at Albany, State University of New York.

Resource Description and Access (RDA) is the new library cataloging for
resource description and discovery, replacing AACR2. Upon completion of
this four-week course you will be familiar with Functional Requirements
for Bibliographic Records (FRBR), the conceptual model on which RDA is
based. You will be able to recognize and create bibliographic records
using RDA and will be directed to the most recent and helpful resources
that are available to help guide you through the transition to RDA. The
course will cover the basic concepts required to confidently navigate
and apply the guidelines in the RDA Toolkit.

– Topics covered in this course include:
– Issues surrounding the change to RDA
– Identifying FRBR entities – Works, Expressions, Manifestations, Items
– Using the RDA Toolkit
– MARC fields for RDA
– Relationships in RDA
– RDA vocabularies
– Basic introduction to principles of linked data

Each week will include an introduction to the week’s content, a few
readings, and an exercise or quiz that provides hands-on practice.
Participation in discussion forums will also be required. Expect to
spend about 3.5 hours on coursework each week. Basic knowledge of MARC21
is not required, but is recommended as a prerequisite for taking this
course.

Melissa Adler is Assistant Professor at the University of Kentucky
School of Library and Information Science, where she teaches courses in
Information Organization and other areas of librarianship. She holds a
PhD in Library and Information Studies from the University of Wisconsin
Madison and has seven years of academic library experience, primarily in
the realm of cataloging.

Are you a librarian who has suddenly been given the responsibility of cataloging for your library, but you know little to nothing about how to do it? Or do you feel that a quick course on cataloging will simply make you a better librarian? Or perhaps it has been a long time since you did cataloging work and you need a refresher. This four-week course will introduce the tools and techniques of the trade, including descriptive cataloging (RDA), subject cataloging (classification and subject headings), and an introduction to Machine Readable Cataloging (MARC). The course promises to provide practical, hands-on training for non-catalogers, including sample workflows, an introduction to copy cataloging, and guides to make the job of cataloging easier.

We will rely heavily on freely available resources so that you learn to use tools that you will be able to access after the course. Each week will include an introduction to the week’s content, a few readings, and an exercise or quiz. We will also have discussion forums for each week, and participation is considered essential. Expect to spend about 3.5 hours on coursework each week.
