It depends on what you meant by a cataloging course.  If you meant broadly a
course covering the characteristics of bibliographic info, cataloging
principles (as part of general principles of info organization), components of
a catalog record (and other bibliographic records), tools used in cataloging
(e.g., bibliographic standards, encoding standards, controlled vocabularies),
and classification theory, then, yes, we do have such a required course at the
University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.  After all, many faculty members and
students refer to this course (Organization of Information) as a “cataloging”
course.
