The implementation of certain newer MARC
21 characters has been agreed to by the NACO nodes (British Library, Library of Congress, National Library of Medicine and OCLC).
Guest speakers at the session will be Dr. William Peniston, manager of the Library and Archives at The Newark Museum in New Jersey, and Mark Braden, catalog librarian at Occidental College in Los Angeles.
Peniston and Braden
will discuss how they address their cataloging issues: backlogs, limited resources, non-English titles, future collection acquisitions and more.
This class is designed for practicing catalogers (with or without MLS degrees) from all types of libraries, with a working knowledge of MARC
and concepts of bibliographic control.
