AACR and MARC for Video Recordings

FEDLINK is pleased to offer the fifth workshop from The MARC of Quality
on excellence in cataloging, the first four courses having been MARC21
in Your Library, Just for Copy Cats, Book Blitz I and Book Blitz II.

Once you are comfortable with the basic cataloging tools--the Anglo
American Cataloguing Rules (AACR2R), Library of Congress Rule
Interpretations (LCRI) and the MARC coding standards (MARC21)--you will
be ready to work with the special fields needed for description and
access for videos (including video DVDs).

Building on the basics, this workshop for intermediate catalogers, and
experienced catalogers covers the core cataloging skills:

* Describing a video in enough detail for your users' needs
* Assigning useful search terms, such as featured cast, production
companies, etc.
* Choosing the correct MARC coding
* Deciding whether or not copied records truly match your items
* Creating 'different edition' or 'near match' video records

Please remember you must bring the required text for this course,
