Tip #2: EI Training Manual and the OCLC Bibliographic Formats and Standards

The Evergreen Indiana Catalog Training Manual is online. Individual chapters in pdf format can be saved to your desktop or printed. http://www.in.gov/library/5089.htm takes you directly to the Training Manual.

A great online resource for cataloging that’s also FREE is the OCLC Bibliographic Formats and Standards You do not have to be an OCLC library to access this site. It’s so easy to use and contains a wealth of information. Click on the field group you have a question about (4xx, 8xx, etc.), then narrow your selection by using the links along the left side of the page.

Be sure to attend a Cataloging Roundtable Wednesday September 9 from 10:00 a.m. to 12 noon.   Two roundtables will be held that day – one at the Greenfield Public Library for Evergreen catalogers in the southern part of Indiana and the other at the Kendallville Public Library for those living in the north.  Registered attendees will earn one (1) LEU.   Register on Webjunction Indiana by clicking on the button for Indiana Calendar of Events.
