CALL FOR TRAINERS

To attend an Instructor Development Seminar for a new course:

Fundamentals of Library of Congress Classification

At-a-glance:
Experienced catalogers/trainers may apply to become presenters for a
new 2-day course *Fundamentals of Library of Congress
Classification.*  Selected applicants will attend an Instructor
Development Seminar (IDS) on October 30, 2007, at the Library of
Congress, Washington, DC.  Following the IDS, trainers* names will
appear on the LC website where sponsors can recruit them to lead
workshops.
http://www.loc.gov/catworkshop/cct/lcc/ 

More details:
The trainer*s main responsibility will be to present the material.  A
task group drawn from the Program for Cooperative Cataloging Standing
Committee on Training (PCC SCT) and the Association for Library
Collections and Technical Services Cataloging and Classification Section
(ALCTS CCS) developed the content. Libraries, library associations, or
other groups that wish to sponsor a workshop will register the event,
obtain licenses for materials from LC*s Cataloging Distribution
Service, and identify trainers on the course website offered by
Cataloger's Learning Workshop (CLW).  Workshop sponsors pay the expenses
of the presenters for scheduled events.  Honoraria are given at the
discretion of the sponsor.

Course content:
This 2-day course presents authoritative training in the principles and
practices of Library of Congress Classification (LCC). It includes
background on the development and structure of LCC, on the components of
call numbers, and guidance in the use of essential tools. Emphasis is on
application of LCC in areas most often used by generalists, including
schedules H, N, and P. The workshop concludes with a session on local
classification decisions and on proposing class numbers through the PCC
SACO program.

Intended audience:
The intended audience for the *Fundamentals of LC Classification*
course is the library community at-large, including both PCC and non-PCC
participants.  The modules are designed to build basic skills in library
staff who catalog or perform tasks dependent on classification systems. 
It will be useful for those who are new to the LC Classification system
and those who have some basic knowledge of cataloging and the MARC
formats. While not designed to cover advanced or specialized topics, the
course will also be a useful review for experienced catalogers,
especially those who supervise or train other catalogers. Some
familiarity with MARC formats is helpful. 

Qualification/Requirements for IDS Applicants:

	A minimum of 3 years cataloging experience; thorough
understanding of the principles and application of the Library of
Congress Classification system.
	Knowledge of Classification Web
	Experience training others, such as SCCTP workshops, PCC, CLW or
other cataloging-related workshops, or significant in-house training.
	Supervisor*s submission of the References for Trainer*s
document.

Instructions for the Applicant:
Candidates for training should save the Application for Trainers found
at <http://www.loc.gov/catworkshop/cct/lcc/application.doc>, complete
it, and return it via email by July 17, 2007 to Carolyn Sturtevant,
[log in to unmask] .

Selection of participants:

When choosing participants for the IDS, selectors may wish to consult
with an applicant*s supervisor or another reference who can provide
helpful details on qualifications.  Factors such as class size and
geographical distribution of potential trainers will enter into the
selection process as well.  Regrettably, it may not be possible to
select all qualified candidates.

Statement of support from Supervisor at home institution:

In addition to the application from a prospective trainer, the CLW
requires a statement of support from the applicant*s home institution
if the participant will be using official time to prepare, travel, and
instruct at another institution.  Travel expenses for a participant*s
attendance at the IDS event are not reimbursed by the CLW.  When the
applicant becomes a trainer, the group sponsoring that event will cover
the travel expenses of the instructor, and optionally, may offer an
honorarium.

Instructions for the Supervisor:
Supervisors should save the References for Trainers document found at
<http://www.loc.gov/catworkshop/cct/lcc/reference.doc>, complete it,
and return it by July 17 via email to Carolyn Sturtevant, [log in to unmask]
.

Instructions for optional additional references for the applicant:
Other parties with knowledge of the applicant*s qualifications may
submit comments by saving the References for Trainers document,
completing and returning it via email to Carolyn Sturtevant,
[log in to unmask]

Confirmation required for course attendance:
Submitting an application does not guarantee that you will be placed in
the IDS. Accordingly you should not make any travel arrangements for
receiving official confirmation.  The registrar will acknowledge all
applications as they arrive.  The registrar will notify each potential
candidate of the response to their application by Friday, August 10,
2007, sending confirmation notices and additional details to
participants.
