This survey is designed to collect information on the training and
continuing education needs of the cataloging community in all areas except
serials cataloging. Serials cataloging is being excluded because the
Serials Cataloging Cooperative Training Program (SCCTP) program is
addressing the continuing education needs of that group of catalogers.
The survey is aimed at catalog librarians, cataloging managers, and others
who also perform original and complex cataloging and authority work.
