Cheryl,

This is a good point. It should be treated as separate from the practicum experience. However, the way I look at it, our job as cataloging instructors is to teach cataloging theory, as well as making sure students know and understand how to use common cataloging tools and standards (AACR2, MARC, Cat. Desk., Class. Web., etc...etc...) to prepare them for their future cataloging jobs. Having students create multiple records using these tools and standards seems to be the most efficient way of doing this. At the moment, I am having my advanced cataloging students catalog only 4 items per couple of weeks in OCLC Connexion, but we spend a lot of time discussing each of the items and the rules and their concerns, etc...etc...I guess I fear that giving them too many items at once will overwhelm them and they will start to focus on "just getting them done" rather than really engaging with each of the items. Then, perhaps, once they get to the practicum stage, they will be more comfortable tackling more items. I don't know....I am still working through this myself. At the same time, I also have them read a bunch of articles and post discussions of them every other week too, so they aren't just working on records.

I've always wondered why our dominant mode of teaching cataloging is
mentoring in record creation, with quantity (keeping up with feedback)
always being the main discussion about teaching. Is a graduate-level
cataloging course different from (or the same as) a practicum? Should
it be?
